I have several problems with Shotgun website.
1 Impossible to hide Task Templates Status
I have several diffeent Task Templates for different Entities. Some such as Shots or Assets need lots of differents status for their tasks, while others like the Custom Entity ‘Plugin’ only need Active / Disabled status.
I created the Custom Entity (non project) ‘Plugin’
I added ‘Active’ and ‘Disabled’ status to the list of status usable for tasks in task templates page*
I try to hide the other status on Plugin Tasks to only let users see ‘Active’ and ‘Disabled’
I get an error for each status set to hidden:
The same happens if i try to hide ‘Active’ and ‘Disabled’ on other entities such as Asset.
How can I pass this problem?
- Not a bug, but rather a VERY dangerous design choice that I think should definitly be modified: it seems if you delete a status for a Task on a single Task Template, it will delete the Status for ALL the Task Templates.
In my case, it changed the status on all tasks on all existing Assets because I changed ‘Plugin’ task template…
This is really dangerous and should be way more clear on the Task Template page, especially since the “eye” button on the exact same widget will only change status visibility for the selected task template.
2 Impossible to save a Create Global Form for a new Entity
As said earlier, I created a Custome non project entity ‘Plugin’ on my website as well as a page ‘Softwares Plugins’ to show them.
When trying to save the “+ Plugin” create form, I get no error message, but next time I’ll open the form it won’t have been saved.
After saving the form :
