  1. 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.

  2. Statistics view - Save the columns order

    In the statistics view, the columns order can be changed manually by dragging the columns left and right. Unfortunately, this ordering is not saved and must be done every time manic time is restarted.

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  6. 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

  8. 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.

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. Function to distinguish 2 programs that share the same .exe name?

    I don't know where to ask this so might as well do it here.
    I have 2 video games that use the same engine, so when I launched them they both have the same name (ex: engine.exe) but they both have different title name of course. The application tracker treats them as the same thing and lump their hours up together. Is there a way to separate them somehow?

  17. 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!

  18. Track the conversation in Skype

    Skype gets tracked correctly when it is running, however not which conversation it is showing. Ideally MT would show which skype thread is being discussed and track against that project. Currently skype title just says "Skype" which is pretty useless. Is it possible to auto detect the chat that is active?

    Using:
    Skype version 8.65.0.78

  19. 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.

  20. "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.
