  1. trigger screenshot shortcut

    The ability to trigger a screenshot on demand.

    Sometimes I need a screenshot of something in case I need to refer to it later, it would be good if this could be in manic time instead of having dozens of windows Snip tools open.

  3. Dynamic tag shortcuts

    Would love to see a shortcut that tags the selected block of time with the last tag used, i.e. the tag that's at the top of the "add tag" list.

    I often go through my timeline to find the spots throughout the day where I was working on a particular project, and I tag each of these blocks of time as I go through. Instead of having to open the "add tag" window every time (press Ctrl+T, then click on the tag at the top of the list to copy it and the notes over to the left, then press…

  4. Track which Chrome profile is in use.

    I use separate Chrome profiles for work and not-work. When I access a site like, "mail.google.com", I currently can't tell if it's for work or not. Having the added information about the Chrome profile would completely fix this.

  5. GotoConnect (Jive) Timeline / Plugin

    GotoConnect (Jive) is a cloud PBX system. It would be great to see which contact/phone number was connected to. Similar to what the old Skype connector did.

  6. 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

  7. Periodically Check to See if I am Still Working Is Broken

    http://support.manictime.com/forums/222041-feature-requests/suggestions/9487788-remember-periodically-check-if-i-am-still-working

    This was previously requested and marked as completed. However, the software no longer remembers your "periodically check if I am still working on this" settings. Any update on when this might be fixed?

  8. Linux Client - Fully Local UI

    Currently, the Linux client lacks its own UI - it must be used with a separate server to act as its UI. The problem is, if you're already using a remote central server to coordinate multiple clients you can't run that server locally - and having to depend on a remote server as the only form of UI makes it impossible to work while offline (i.e. on flights, out in the field, etc). Furthermore, the only way to use screenshots is by syncing them - which will consume an immense amount of additional data, which may not be feasible if…

  9. Scroll through screenshots

    As far as I can tell, you can only show screenshots either by hovering over the timeline or hovering over the left panel. I'd like to be able to highlight an item on the left panel and have the screenshot appear, and then, if you scroll down using arrow keys, the screenshot of the highlighted row shows.

  10. easier access to tag editor

    Current design: the tag editor is hidden away as the only item of an unnamed drop down menu at the left side edge of the tags timeline, which also means it takes two clicks to get to it. This also leads to a slightly confusing unused vertical area across all tag lines.

    Proposed solution: add a tag editor button to the Tags group in the Day ribbon.

  11. Screenshot Database for Security Purposes

    I like the screenshot feature for myself to remind myself what I was actually doing at a particular time. But the idea of screenshots so plainly visible to anyone with access to that folder means potential security breach and even compromised PII.

    If the screenshots could be saved in a small compressed format that could be saved in a secure database with limited retention like a couple days I think that would be a big help. Typically the screenshots are only useful for me when Im performing end of day tagging and I need to remember what I was doing…

  12. Compatibility through WineHQ

    Afaic, ManicTIme is focused in Windows machines, with a tracker available for the other platforms. So someone on these other platforms can use the service (even though a bit cumbersomely compared to windows) even without a full port that we would like.

    The hickup in this, is that if he wants to use the WIndows App (let's admit it is way more useful for individuals than the server web page) he has to launch a VM every time.

    Having said these, understanding that a full port to other platforms can be costly for the ManicTime Team, I would like to…

  13. Add Plugin for Redmine

    Could be interesting to have a plugin for Redmine. Lot of companies are using Redmine as task management tool, including time tracking.

    Import assigned tasks as tags from Redmine and export time tracking as spent time to Redmine could be very useful.

  14. All child windows to be grouped under the parent application

    In my firm, we use software that creates child windows that take up a serious amount of time during work hours. Unfortunately, manictime just shows them with the window_name (eg. Options, settings etc) that has no value to the manager.

    It would be absolutely wonderful if all these child windows could be group under a single parent app and the time shown would correspond to the total time spent to the parent application.

  17. Support ARM architecture for ManicTime Server on Linux

    When running ManicTime Server on my Raspberry PI 4, I get the following error:

    -bash: ./ManicTimeServer: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error

    It appears the ARM architecture is currently not supported.

    I would love support for ARM devices so I can run ManicTime Server on my Raspberry PI.

  18. Copying and merging DB of day time sheet

    With Covid-19 lockdowns, I have been working on my machine at home. Is there is simple way to extract the data base information for the daily sheets into a file that I can carry into my work, and merge with my main machine's data? Neither machine will be "on" unless the other is "off". I don't think that the "server" solution will help me. The KB articles suggest that the data is not combined when it is transferred. It suggests if transfer is used, the existing data will be over-written.

  19. Disable tracking for the weekend/till Monday

    Hi

    I'd like to have the option to pause Manictime from tracking by right clicking on the taskbar tray icon.

    We currently have the option to pause for:
    - 15 minutes,
    - 1 hour,
    - till tomorrow
    - till manually enabled again.

    I think that "Pause till Monday" will be a nice extra option to have to disable tracking during the weekend.
