Every activity with ftrack Studio creates a data point that accumulates, from publishing assets to adding notes Using reports in ftrack allow for data-driven decision making. As all information flows through ftrack, creating the appropriate views makes preparing reports easy as all data lives in ftrack, so you’ll always be confident in a single source of truth – handy when sharing reports with other stakeholders.
Attributes in ftrack are a piece of information which determines the properties of the field, they can be used to track data on objects and can be used to filter, sort and group data.
Attributes can be associated with lists, users, asset versions or any other object.
Scenario: We’d like to use the insights in ftrack to aid with decision making by viewing reports. The management team would also like to be kept in the loop on the progress of the project but don’t have access to ftrack. Exporting a PDF or Excel report can easily summarise the status of the project.
