Filter out individual Tasks from Pipeline Step columns

Currently you can filter on information in Pipeline Step columns in order to determine what Shots do or don't show up on a Shots page, for example. But there is no way to filter which Tasks show up in the Pipeline Step columns for a Shot on the page. So you can make a filter to show any Shots where the Anim Task is "Final," or any Shots without an FX Task. But let's say you want to filter out any Tasks in the Anim Pipeline Step column where the status is "N/A" while still showing all the other Layout Tasks for that Shot. We currently don't have a way to do that - if you show a Pipeline Step column, it will show all the Tasks in that Pipeline Step for each Shot.

    Yes plz! We'd want to filter tasks inside a pipeline step pretty much the same as on a regular tasks page. Here's an example: we've got a Task Template that stamps out a set of VFX tasks on a 'VFX' step on Shots. We expose the bid and budget columns on a "bidding" page to make it easy for the HODs to do early estimates during shot breakdowns. Sometimes not all tasks are bid, so it would be nice not to see them on a "now-in-production" page. But, we don't want to just delete those un-bid tasks because they may turn out to be required after all as the work on the shot progresses, so we'd assign a duration to such a task to bring it back, and it would then be easy to see that task represents beyond-scope work.

    Yes please! We create all tasks as part of our template and mark any we don't need as N/A. As usually happens, we find throughout a project that we require tasks to be un-N/A'd. Rather than  duplicate or create tasks from scratch, we simply change the task status. This is a quick and fool-proof way of ensuring that a task is activated and all the required fields are populated. Unfortunately, not being able to filter out the N/A tasks in a pipeline view means that there is a lot of clutter. If we could filter the tasks out within the pipeline view, this would give us a very clear and concise snapshot of every shot!

    I'd definitely appreciate having task filters implemented on the Assets and Shots pages. It's less cluttered than the Tasks page and better organized with pipeline view.

    For as filtering for specific tasks in a step would be perfect.

    Yes, please. This is really needed.
    We have tons of milestone tasks, needed for our tracking, but we don't want to see them in the pivot tables.

    Would be great to have more control on this. We generally don't want to see milestones as well as NA tasks on these pivot tables views.
