  1. Custom alert for Tag level 1 based on duration for specific period (month)

    The possibility to set an alarm would be VERY very helpful, if in a certain period (e.g. month) a certain tag on level 1 (!) Has done a user-defined number of hours.

    In this way, a service contingent for a specific customer can be tracked and maintained very easily.

    Or does something already exist? So far, you can only create notes for a day and not at the tag level.

    I would be happy if that would work.

  3. Point in Time Markers

    Ability to add Point-In-Time Markers to any of the timelines.

    I have a custom timeline that pulls from a local web source - it shows me my telephone logs - incoming and outgoing calls. Timelines work great for that because there is a start and a finish.

    I want to also show when I receive and send SMS messages as well. I can already import them from my phone - but they are point in time - not duration.

    Right-click -> Add Marker
    Select the Icon, enter the time it occurred at, one or more tags, and notes.

    It would…

  4. Reorder pinned tags

    I'd like to be able to reorder my pinned tags.

    I find the "pinned tags" feature very helpful and have built up a long of these over the years. However, because this list has been built up over the years, my pinned tags list currently has a strange order, and there does not seem to be a way to reorder them without unpinning and re-pinning each of them.

    It would be helpful if there were a simpler way to reorder these, such as drag-and-drop or an additional option in the tag editor.

  5. Shortcuts to navigate in the application and timeline

    To be really fast with my time booking and navigation, I would prefer to have a better shortcut integration, for example to switch between days or to start a tag after the last finished tag in the day. Also flying through the screenshots would be nice on the keyboard. This would improve the efficiency very much I think.

  6. Filter documents and apps by auto-tag

    I wish I could filter documents and apps to match only a single auto-tag, or pattern That would help to see more easily what I worked on when I worked for client X. Not sure, if this is already possible though... If yes, then please add some examples to the filter help page.

  7. 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.

  9. Automatically open screenshot viewer on second monitor option

    Having an option/checkbox you can include in "Settings" to automatically open screenshot viewer on a second monitor would be really good, so that you don't have to press F12 to open it every the time.

  10. "Until next boot" time tracking off option

    Often times my usage times are not in one big, continuous chunk, but involve multiple boots. What this means is sometimes, I want to turn off the tracking which I have to do using the "Go Off The Record" option, in which the most appropriate option is "Until you turn on".

    When I do this, I MUST turn it back on manually after boot for it to start/continue tracking, which is easy to forget the next day/morning and indeed I have done so :( A simple option that auto tracks on boot could really help.

  11. Undo should be available at least until the next change is made

    V 4.0 added the ability to undo, but it's like chasing a mouse! Miss that few-seconds window & it's gone. There are tons of comments asking for this on the idea where V4.0 is marked as complete, so I think it's not being seen how bad we want this! Please and thank you!

  12. Citavi Plugin

    A Plugin to see which project is opened in Citavi would be nice. Currently I have multiple projects there and can only track that through the application timeline where i cant tell the projects apart.

  13. Tagging moments of time (milestones)

    ManicTime does great job while tagging and logging time periods. It is also necessary to tag and log certain moments of time. That would be for example equivalent of reaching milestones in projects or moments of starting certain things. That would allow not only tracking used net working time but also tracking lead times which might be at times even more important than actual time spent.

  14. Track the folders wgere the project files are located

    It would be nice if it was possible to track the Folder were the files are located. Most businesess use a folder structure that represents all the projects that are running. This way you only need to track the folder P:\clients\project.. and all files with this string will be tracked for one project.

    Thanks,
    Jaap

  15. Comparing Estimated time with actual time

    Estimated time for a project/task is often different from the actual time spent. It would be great if there's a feature that showed the difference

  16. 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).

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. show daily net hours on top bar

    The top bar shows "day start", "day end" , "duration" on the right. It would be great to see "active" duration also to see, the active hours without checking the statistics tab

  20. 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.
