  1. Add export option 'All timelines' instead of each timeline seperately

    By clicking [settings-symbol] -> 'Import,Export' it is very easy to export all data recorded. However you get 4 seperate files.

    There are multiple options to export data to xlsx or csv, but none of them puts the label, usage-, program- and document information next to each other in columns (just like the main screen of Manic time has these timelines above each other).The easiest way I have found to do this is to export each timeline (4 options: labels, somputer usage, programs and documents) seperately and put them together in Excel, but that is quite an exercise.

    If the file…

  3. Add Display Setting for First day of Week - Sunday, or Monday

    I do a lot of work with systems that are Europe based and all of them have weeks start on Monday and end on Sunday (Which I rather like... The weekend, is the weekend, not the week book ends)
    Without this capability I'm always fighting the Timesheet and can't use "Previous Week", for example. I always have to use a Custom and set the begin/end dates. I first looked for that feature in Settings -> Display. I don't know if there is a better place.

  4. replace tags

    My workflow is to search for keywords. Sometimes the keywords get tagged with the wrong tag, which I notice when doing a different search. I then need to "delete" tags, and re-tag everything in the search with a different tag. It would be great if instead of "Add tag..." I could "Add and Replace tag..."

  5. Improve to save new edited tags

    When I edit new tag, and key in esc, the edit window is closed and the typed text is gone. In this case please ask to save or forgett the text. Another tip is save text in between with key ctrl-S, not only with OK button.

  6. Automatic prompt for call notes

    For the add in call log on Android, it would be nice to be prompted in some way to enter notes about the call which can make it easier to recall events and subjects when tagging later

  7. You need a much better way to deal with conflicts in autotags

    Conflicts in autotags are taking me forever. There are so many of them. You need a feature that detects them and that has some form of wizard that will scroll through them all and just ask the user to select which is the tag they want most, either on a day basis or by project, or some other way.

  8. Disabling Screenshots for specific applications

    It should be possible to specify applications or websites for which no screenshots should be taken.
    If you have applications or websites with confident information (such for example password tools or financial tools) it is not desirable that these contents are visible by others in screenshots.

  9. Please focus "Tags" input after click on "Tag last untagged time"

    Maybe a Bug or missing Feature.
    Using "Tag last untagged time" as described on
    https://manictime.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/686274-tag-last-untagged-time

    on Windows 10.
    The Cursor blinks on the "Tags" input field, but typing do NOT appear there.
    Have to click it with the mouse first, then typing works.

    Hint: using a shortcut to open the "Tag last untagged time" works better, typing is possible without mouseclick.

  10. Please add ctrl+A screenshot to select entire day in timeline

    Once I finished tracking all periods in a day, I like to select all the rest and assign a generic non-billable task, so I know that the entire day is accounted for. This would make that task much faster.

  11. Hit "play" on a previous tagged entry to start timer again

    After working on Task A, you switch to Task B and create the new tags. Then, when you want to switch back to Task A, it would be nice if you could just right click on the previous block of time (or select from the drop down in the corner) to start the timer again for Task A. Instead of having to retype in the popup (just takes more time).

  12. When exporting a timesheet offer to open the file in the associated app

    When I export a timesheet to Excel my very next action is to open it in Excel which I suspect is a common next action for many people. Currently it's a manual process; run Excel, locate where I saved the file and open it. If I'm processing many exports this can be a significant percentage of the time spent.
    I'm about to write an autohotkey script to automate this for myself however it would be nice if Manictime offered the option to directly open the exported file after saving.

  13. Daily duration time options

    When I ended work at 1.00 AM and turned off computer, and then turned on computer again at 20:00 - Daily Duration chart tells me, that I've worked 20 hours. It should count only time when computer is turned on.

  14. Total billable time in Timesheet

    Provide totals at the bottom for Billable and Unbillable time as well as the grand total.

    Eliminates some toggling you have to do now to get these numbers.

  15. More Recent Tags options

    Expand the Settings -> Tagging configuration to change the way Recent Tags is displayed:

    1. Recent Tags (Globally)
    2. Recent Tags (Individually)
    3. Recent Tags (Filtered for the Application and/or Document being tagged)

    3 is huge. If the same Application and/or Document is always tagged the same - why do we still need to sift through the recent tags list each and every time.

  16. Request for additional schedule backup options

    I'm using ManicTime Pro.

    I have a feature request for scheduling backup.
    I make regular backups every day, including the screenshot database.

    The contents of the ZIP archive data contain daily screenshots from the day you start the backup.

    I want to back up only one day's worth of screenshots to a ZIP archive.
    This is to save space.

    I made an image of what I want to say, so I hope that you will see the PDF and install it as an additional function.
    * I think it would be good if there was a check function in the…

  18. in app notification of upcoming license expiration

    I would love it if there was an in-app notification that my yearly license was about to expire, rather than just an email which tends to get lost. I find the yearly subscription very reasonably priced, especially with the 50% discount. Only issue is that while I use ManicTime all-day, everyday, I frequently miss or overlook the reminder email. A 'license about to expire' notification would be helpful for me and perhaps others.

    Keep up the great work ManicTime team, especially Andrej. Best customer service/support tech I have ever come across. Does not drop the ball, just perseveres until the…

  19. Machine Learning Tags

    I'd like tags to be suggested based on machine learning, so I don't have to come up with rules, I work on many small projects, so creating rules manually is too time-consuming.
    I'd like some machine learning to look at past tagging and suggest the correct tag (tags can be those found via the Jira integration, rather than AI making up text)
    The machine learning should take into account adjacent tags, and how I've tagged things in the past. there should be a huge wealth of data.
    It could also use the screenshots, often a client logo appears on those.

  20. Quick select toolbar

    I have used ManicTime for several years, and I think it's the best time tracker on the market. There is one thing, however, that continues to frustrate me.
    The way the program works is perfect. However the amount of UI interaction required to do things is too high. For example:

    When allocating times:
    - right click on the time block
    - choose 'tag activity as'
    - select activity (if on list, otherwise click 'add tag' and type text)

    this may have to be repeated for 10 or 12 activity blocks suring the day

    Likewise, the timer feature is great in…
