We have encountered a few situations lately where we thought that having more user types in shotgun would have been useful (like there is for admin or artist at the moment). We thought it could allow us to customize even more the way the information is presented to the artists depending on the department they work in.
For instance, we set earlier this week the global default layouts for the My pages section and applied it to all users in the studio. I realized that modelers prefered grouping their tasks by asset types while it made more sense to group them by sequences for compositors. Another example would be that production managers and coordinators almost never use the My review items and the My versions pages since they don't submit versions for dailies.
I'm sure defining more user types would be useful in other cases as well.
Is this the kind of feature that you would consider for a future release?
Thank you very much!
