I noticed it is possible to create a Task Template where tasks are not linked to any step, by chosing “None” as a step for a specific task.
I was really interested, as steps are pretty unnecessary in my pipeline configuration and tend to slow down artists when using “Shotgun File Open/Save” in DCC Integration (basically, using Steps add more clics to chose which tasks needs to be saved).
But it seems Shotgun File Open/Save is not able to retrieve an asset task if there are no steps:
(in this exemple, asset testSgtkCharacter has a template with steps while testNoStep tasks are all set to step “None” in their template).
Of course, I checked my template.yml and schema never use any Step key but only task_name keys.
Is there any way to make this work?
If not, is there any way to make “Shotgun File Open/Save”:
Only show Tasks without putting them under a Step, like when showing “all tasks” on the asset page of the website?
Use step order as defined on the website rather than alphabetical order on steps?
If none of those are possible, I tried with all tasks under a single Step which might be the simplest solution. Alas, tasks are still sorted with alphabetical order rather than Sort Order.
is it possible to use sort order on tasks in DCC Integration? It would be a huge improvement for artists.
