Make the Version Name link to media page

 There is a column for linking to the local frames.  A column for linking to the uploaded qt.  But there is no column for linking to the media page to look at and markup the video.

    Hi Gavin,

    Nice idea! The Version thumbnail should have a play icon overlaid on top of it. Clicking that will play the Version. Another possible solution would be to create a custom field on the Version record of the type "URL Template." The template URL would look like this:

    https://yourURL.shotgunstudio.com/page/media_center?type=Version&id={id}

    Users could then click the link of that field to launch the Version in the media app.

    How did I know nothing about template fields? Now I need to learn all of their secrets.

    Can you deep link to the overview tabs on a page?   So for instance the "Notes" tab on a detail page? 

    e.g. https://####.shotgunstudio.com/detail/Shot/1750#Notes

    Not at this time. Using that sort of formatting it's possible to link directly to a View on a detail page, or a top level tab on a regular page, but not a lower tab on a detail page.

    The 'Link Name' for URL Template fields ought to support {template fields} too, like {code} for example so that the link text could look the same as the Playlist Name.
