Using Messages

ftrack is equipped with an internal messaging system that can be used to instantly send messages to other users.



It can be reached via the Inbox in the top bar that also gathers status updates on tasks you’re assigned to, published versions, assignments, and unassignments.

Tip: A new note in the inbox will light it up, and it can be marked as read by clicking it.


Sending a new message

To send a message to another user, click the Click here to send a new message... field at the top of the Inbox, enabling a new window requiring you to fill in some extra information.

Select recipient(s), choose the Label, write a message text, [add attachment(s)], and click Send message.


Replying to a message

A reply to a message in your inbox can be sent by clicking the Reply... field.

In addition to a text, you can also add or remove recipients and attach files to your reply.


Starring a message

If you have a message that is important and that you would like to be able to get back to quickly, you can star it.


To later filter your messages in the inbox and only show the starred ones, click the Starred filter in the toolbar.
