Creating contact sheets in Shotgun

I have looked through the documentation but can't seem to find out if this is possible. I might be missing something very obvious though.
I need to make contact sheets of the key frames of my shots. Each shot in a sequence might have between 1 and 4 key frames. I want to display each of these frames in a grid but with the shot number, frame number and ideally artist overlaid on each frame.
Ideally I would then be able to view different versions of the shots.
The fastest thing is to just drag and drop all my images into rv and set layout to grid but I can't find a way to add the shot info onto each image in the grid (only the floating shot info using the mouse over).

    Hi Gabriel,

    RV supports Layout views that you can organize in a grid or many other options as you have discovered. Unfortunately the labeling step is likely going to require some scripting to make a custom package. Are you comfortable with Python or do you have any scripting resources at your disposal?

    I would start by taking a look at this sample package:

    ou I'll have my TD take a look at this. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. Still might be a nice option to have as part of the core program. Contact sheet creation and versionining seems to be something sadly lacking anywhere from what I can see. Ideally I want to have a contact sheet created every day for myself to see a whole sequence and also seperate ones for my lighters with versioning so we can quickly flip between different versions and see changes day to day. Shotgun also needs the concept of a key frame to make this all work (unless it already does and I missed it).
