Shotgun Advanced Filters to see user groups

Hey everyone,

We have set up user groups for teams on Shotgun.

I was wondering if anyone could advise on how to use advance filters to display tasks for all users within a user group.

So we can filter a task page to show tasks for all users in group A.

Thanks in advance!

Hi @walshe101 ,

Welcome to the community.

Since you have set up the user group, here is something you may want to try out.
See how the condition of the advanced filter is set in my example:

In case you cannot load the gif:

You set the condition as

Assign to->Person->Groups->Users includes me

Then you will see tasks assigned to all users in the same group.

Let me know how it works on your side.

Hi @Ben_xzj

The gif worked and is super helpful!

Thanks so much for getting back to me so quickly, this solution works great! I’ve altered it slightly to show users in the group rather than me:

Assign to->Person->Groups->Group Name - (manually typed the group name)

I can’t get these filters to show up when adding Row colour with Rules formatting but very happy with just the filter.

Thanks again for your help!


Glad I helped, Emma. Have fun Shotgunning!/Ben

I’m trying to do a similar filter but for a workfiles2 config. It doesn’t appear to be possible to add a workfiles2 filter in the form :-
- [task_assignees.Person.groups, is, '{context.user}']

It would be nice to be able to assign tasks to users in a loose way, by using groups. Is this possible at all?

Ah I got it working.

  • [task_assignees.Group.users, is, ‘{context.user}’]
