Managing types

Types can be used to specify the type of an object. A Task for example could have the type Animation or Modeling to specify what type of work should be done and a software project could have the types Bug and Feature.

A smaller company might only need a few types while larger facilities would benefit of using more specific types to track a more complex pipeline. You can use these different types when setting up your workflow schemas and you can find the settings page at System settings ‣ Workflow ‣ Types.

Note

The order is important as that is the order the types will appear throughout ftrack.

Click Create to create a new type.

Color
The color representing this type in charts and spreadsheets.
Name
The name of the type.
Billable
Billable indicated wheather objects with that type should be included when summarizing task counts, bids and worked hours in most reports and charts. This may be used to separate administrative tasks which you may need to schedule internally, but don’t want to include as part of the work that went into a project.

Double click a row or click the pen icon to edit a type, or click the trash can icon to remove the type.
