  1. More Automation

    I would like automatic tagging to be able to assign a tag with client name, based on duration email is open or being drafted based on matching email address to list of client names and addresses. I would like the tag to include the activity "email" and a description "the subject line of the email". Similarly for documents worked on in an application I would like a tag based on folder name where document is stored matched to a list of client names and folder names; with the name of the document in the description spot and the application name…

  2. Persist time selection across category

    When a user clicks between Computer Usage, Applications or Documents the time (item row they selected) is reset to the start of the day. (aka the start of the list) In my opinion it should start at the same selected (if there is a time in that category) OR the closest available. Sometimes I click between the few to get an idea of what I was doing that day to get a full picture.

  3. Manual overwrite

    Allow a designated tag to overwrite another tag. Suppose you've tagged Task A from 10:00 to 10:15. Then you look and you see that you took a phone call - Task B - from 10:05 to 10:10. If you just tag Task B from 10:05 to 10:10, you'll have that portion double-tagged. But I'd like to manually overwrite so that Task A is broken into two segments (10:00 to 10:05 and 10:10 to 10:15, totaling 10 mins) and Task B overwrites the time for 10:05 to 10:10, totaling 5 minutes.

  4. productivity settings, calculator, reports

    I stumbled on this software:
    http://www.timesnapper.com/professional.aspx

    and I realised that those features would be better on manictime, than on that timestanpper.

  5. Scheduled Backups should be enabled by default

    ManicTime has a feature for scheduled backups, however these are not enabled by default. I started using manic time about a month ago... I just had my C drive crash and lost my whole database, if the backups had been enabled by default i would have been able to restore since my documents are synchronized

  6. Ability to mark more than one tag at a time as billable

    Currently each tag must be marked individually and then set as billable. However, the UI does allow you to select more than one tag at a time. When I select multiple tags and use "set billable" would like all tags to be marked as billable.

  8. Files paths for Revit Models

    I'd expect Revit would be similar to AutoCAD to program in, and would be very helpful to people in the building design industry.

  9. Clicking an entry on the Timesheet will navigate you to that entry on the Day timeline.

    On the TimeSheet when total by 'Day' is selected, I would like to be able to click on a time entry in the timesheet tab and have the application navigate to the first entry on the timeline of the Day tab.

    When I performed this action, ideally the timeline would grey or filter out all other tags and only display the tag I am investigating.

    When I identify an entry in the timeline that needs adjusted it is necessary for me to make a note of that day, the tag of the time entry and use the date control on…

  10. Configurable "Edit" Tag Entry dialog (notes, start, end)

    Configurable "Edit" Tag Entry dialog (notes, start, end)

    When editing tagged time to modify the notes or adjust start/end times...

    A) The ability to configure and pin the items appearing on the right.
    Configure: For example, add a custom option for, say, "1 hour" to modify the active field (start, end, duration) by the 1 hour. Start time is active: resets end time to 1 hour later. End time active: resets start time 1 hour earlier.

    Pin: when "Tags" text box is selected, I could "pin" various MRU tags instead of them floating down the list based on last used.

  11. Record screen video when an application runs

    Create video recordings for certain applications. For me, I want to record all of my Skype calls automatically (audio and video). Currently I do this manually with SnagIt, but sometimes i forget.

  12. Ignore part of the header of an application

    Some applications (Adobe apps in particular) change their headers in response to the zoom level of the active document (ex. Indesign can have a header saying "New document 1.indd @ 100%" and "New document 1.indd @ 50%" etc for the same document).
    Navigating a document while zooming in and out generates a LOT of entries in the Application view that could have been one single entry.

    It would be nice to be able to tell ManicTime to ignore certain parts of a header to produce less header spam.
    Something as simple (though clunky) as "Ignore [@ 50%, @ 100%, @…

  13. xero integration

    I use Xero.com for my invoicing... currently I use Temponia to capture my timesheets and create preliminary invoices which are then posted to Xero.com. I almost always refer back to ManicTime to figure out what I was doing and then manually capture into Temponia.

    I was wondering if there could be ManicTime direct integration with Xero, or if not, then integration with Temponia?

  14. First time use is a bit daunting. So much information - it is like a three ring circus. A "user guide" would be welcome.

    I hope that my Settings - tracking options will de-clutter the time line and allow me to learn the program. A good guide would be to set the program to only tracking 1 thing, for example Word. The capacity of this program will be needed by Microsoft Office users now that the Journal has been reduced in functionality.

  15. Cell phone app to capture cell phone usage as activity

    I depend heavily on ManicTime for capturing billable time but for phone calls I often end up missing some billable hours.

    I'm very fond of both products/companies so integration between ManicTime and a mobile operator like Ting might be a nice marketing boost to both companies. Further, Ting already has Android and IPhone apps you could piggy-back on. I've sent this suggestion to them as well with a pointer to ManicTime web site.

    Such an app could be as simple as a prompt for the call's purpose after calls. A phone number catch/ignore list would minimize annoyance factor. Input via…

  16. Split

    Split Function for Tag
    During the day I sometimes forget to stop a timer when an interruption comes. Rather than having to then re-adjust the time manually by dragging the task creating a new task and adding the new tag it would be nice if I could put a split in a tag which then seperates that tag into two seperate tags. From there I can just drag the second tag start time to where I got back to my original task and add the new Tag for the interruption.

  17. Tag overrides other descriptions?

    Is there any way to see, when you are inside a tag, which aplication/document it refers to?

    I have taken for example this violet tag but and there are many aplications/documents I move to this tag but I cannot identify them here.

    Thank you
