Studio overview

The studio overview page allows you to get a bird’s-eye view of everything that is going on at the Studio, across different projects and departments.

In this article we will learn how to Get an overview of your project and see What is everyone occupied with.

Getting an overview of your projects

The project page offers three different views of the projects at the studio:

  • Cards view
  • List view
  • Timeline view

The cards and list view will show you all the projects that you’re currently tracking in ftrack. This is a good way to get a glimpse of all projects.

What is everyone occupied with
