  1. Auto tag function based on file placement and Support for archicad

    Hi.
    If manictime could tag time based on the placment of the file i am working on that would be awsome. I have several projekts, and each project has an own folder with subfolders in windows. On the projeckt there is alot of differnt files,with the onley thing common that they are all placed in the same project folder.
    So an auto tag function based on file placement woult be great!

    Could you add support for Graphisoft Archicad. It dosent show up in the documnet line correct in manic time.

  4. Tag Editing Tools - Move/Drag, Cut/Split

    More vesitility for tag placement and editing. This could work similar to how a video editing program like Final Cut X works.

    1. Move/Drag Tags - Click hold and drag to move tags to a different location on the timeline. This is especially usefull for planing a day with tags as planned time blocks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSlZC2GZd_Q

    2. Cut/split tags - this would be usefull for editing tags that were placed previously but a change is desired. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aVcx24lCvzg

  6. Space to select entries/folders, left-right to collapse-expand folders

    When checking the "Day" view, on the left bottom pane you can use Space to select properly. It select/deselects the highlighted line.

    BUT on the right bottom pane Space behaves oddly. To be precise it selects/deselects the checkbox the focus is on, not the line which is highlighted.

    ... and when you introduce folders also the only way to expand/collapse it apart from clicking on the +/- before it is to focus on the +/- icon and push "Space".

  7. Statistics for Custom autotagged timelines

    Basically I utilize two autotagged timelines.

    One is to collect if I'm working or doing something personal. The other one is responsible for keeping track of the projects. It would be great to see how many hours has been auto-tagged like work, or as something that belongs to a certain projects.

    Unfortunately right now despite the data being available, the Statistics tab doesn't show it, and it seems impossible to create a new view for it.

  8. Clio integration

    All the lawyers I work with have loved ManicTime when I've shown it to them, but they aren't willing to switch to a program that isn't compatible with the systems they use at their firms. Clio, in particular, is very widely used, but the process for exporting time from ManicTime and into Clio is really clunky and time-consuming. Setting up that integration would open ManicTime up to a big universe of new customers.

  9. ClickUp plugin

    ClickUp has rapidly become one of the most versatile and well-loved project management and collaboration tools. https://clickup.com/

    Would be great to be able to pull in tasks with their IDs just like the Jira plugin.

  10. open document from advanced search of application timeline

    I would like to be able to search the Applications timeline (for words appearing in a web page title, etc.), find a web page I am looking for, right-click on that page, and then Open the associated URL in my browser. Right now an Open option appears on the right-click menu for the found items, but it is grayed out.

  11. Tags Groups/Categories

    I would like to group some Tags together for some calculations. This could be done either by Grouping Tags to one Aggregating Tag, and thus allowing Tree-Like structure, or by placing Tags to certain Categories (Forest-Like structure).

  13. a flag in the timeline showing previously billed time

    I need the ability to place a flag stating when I last billed. Another way to implement this would be to either add another tag or change the current "billable" tag to "billed."

  15. Interface Skins and Classic Style UI

    The old ManicTime looked so much better. I've been using only the classic 2.5.4.0 version as the tags, colours and theme are just so much better to read and represent. I really hate the new UI, sure it's easy enough to use the old version but after sometime lots of bugs and features will be left out to those who want to stick with the classic UI. Please offer Classic style and a Skins options for users, most great programs and techie programs have skinnable options. Nobody wants to be forced using a UI they dislike especially the new look…

  16. Timesheet reports - highlight selection and calculate sum in status bar like Excel

    This is me being lazy and generating a month report for example and clicking different entries for a total time of those highlighted entries.

    After generating any type of report, I can either shift click a start and end point to multiple select or press CTRL and choose a number of different entries. It would be really good the total of this selection was calculated in the status bar, similar to Excel.

    Screen shot of Excel of exported data for comparison of UI.

  17. Day Duration by tagset

    I'm a freelancer - I use my computer for work, as well as everything else. I would like to be able to see my day duration with tags only as 'work' or 'work'+'administration'. Or any other subset/filter.

    I also use ManicTime for sleep tracking so it would be nice to see a week of sleep patterns side-by-side.

    Same with the 'Attendance' it would be nice if I could consider a day 'attended' if there is a 'work' tag > 1h.

    Thanks!

  18. Automated Alerts Based on Mid-Week Timesheet totals

    Apparently I work too much...

    It'd be great to set up an alert that monitors the totals of billable tags for a given date range and performs an action (alert, email, etc.) when a configured threshold is reached.

    For Example:
    As a user, I want to create a recurring "timeline/tag summary alert" so that I receive a notification (via email) when the total time for a given tag exceeds a specified number of hours within a date range.

  19. Make Jira Tags from the Jira Plugin configurable

    Currently I have autotags which can generate tags of the format:
    JIRAKEY, #JIRAKEY-999
    However these don't match the tags from the plugin which are
    Jira Name, #JIRAKEY-999 Description of issue number nine nine nine

    I would like to be able to specify how tags are formatted like so:
    tags: {PROJECT-KEY}, #{ISSUE-KEY}
    notes: {PROJECT-NAME}, {ISSUE-NAME}

    In order for the save work to jira feature to work I'd need to have #{ISSUE-KEY} somewhere in tags, so perhaps a validation warning to that effect would be great.

  20. Windows 10 Support for Multiple Desktops

    I'm starting to implement the new "Desktops" feature of Windows 10 and splitting my workspaces to segment between the different desktops.

    It appears that Maniac time can only track the desktop that it's currently tied to. This might be more of an OS thing as I realize that other applications are not aware of the same app that's open on another desktop either.
