  1. timeline connector for SQL query

    I understand there is a feature to construct a custom timeline by accessing some kind of XML data, but it would seem to be useful to be able to extract timelines from remote dbs via normal SQL.

    (this could potentially be implemented on both the Desktop client and Server)

    (this is a request I made in the old forums, just replicating it here for visibility:
    http://forum.manictime.com/yafpostst163timeline-connector-for-SQL-query.aspx#post576)

  2. Cisco PBX call tracking timeline

    Record start/end time, number, name or other identifying information on a separate timeline

    The Cisco system (and others, I'm guessing) have web portals (and hopefully APIs) for individual users to access their call records from a central place, but those would require authentication to a central system.

    I was able to dial my attached phone from within Outlook and from a company web phone directory, a la Skype, though, so there is some sort of mechanism to control the physical phone itself from the desktop. Hopefully this control would also include the ability to read that phone's call log, rather…

  3. Track several tasks simultaneously

    Sometimes, it is possible to perform a bit of multitasking. A task may require attention every 5-10 minutes, in which time another similar task may be performed. - Both tasks are billable.
    An example is server maintenance for a client (or several clients). Installing and configuring updates, software, etc. - Often such tasks are "fragmented" and may be performed in parallel.
    It would be great to be able to have an option in Settings to switch on "Track Multiple tasks simultaneously", which enables several stopwatches in parallel. - This saves me from having to manually tracking it and manually adding…

  4. 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…

  6. Pomodoro Timer steals focus: use system tray pop up as an option

    Currently, the pomodoro timer opens a window that steals the focus from the current application.
    While this might be good to signal the break, it can also affect current work. Especially when working with graphic or engineering applications where a single command might take several minutes (e.g. using a polygon mask in a graphics program), this might jeopardize the work of the user, making the technique inefficient.

    Therefore I'd like to suggest to implement an option where a system tray popup is shown instead. When the user clicks the pop up, the window to tag the break is shown (as…

  7. Tag/Comment the entire day of work

    It would be useful to have the possibility to tag or comment the entire day in order to remember additional facts happened during the day.

  8. Horizontal Scroll Wheel Support on Timeline

    The horizontal scroll wheel on my mouse does nothing by the looks of it. It would be preferable to have this move the timeline window forward and backwards through the day

  11. Document Timeline for Nitro PDF

    We use nitro PDF instead of adobe. The applications timeline includes all the file detail but the files I open/read/markup don't appear in my document timeline.

  12. Colour code URLs that differ by port with different colours.

    When viewing my document timeline I see all the same colour for various client work, this is because it all occurs on the localhost domain (but each client has a different port) so it would be great if urls that differed by port could also differ by colour.

  13. Grouping of Autotags in Manictime

    It will be better if you can add this feature to segment autotags like (category 1, category 2) and under each category there will be several independent autotags. Currently i have 20 autotags and want to group them into 3 category but that is not possible. These are some suggestion how to implement this.

    1) In Timesheet: It can be added in timesheet generation and giving an option to group autoatags and it will show total time spent under each category.

    2) In Timeline: It can also be displayed in autotag timeline and user will have option whether to show…

  14. Detect remote desktop connections

    It would be nice if ManicTime could detect that a computer is controlled through a remote desktop connection such as through TeamViewer, and give the option to not track that time as active.

    I have ManicTime installed on both my home and office computer, and sometimes need to do something on my office computer remotely when I'm at home. In effect, this time gets counted as doubly active, because my home ManicTime client will detect that I'm working in the TeamViewer application, while the office ManicTime client thinks I'm actually on the computer there and working in the local applications.…

  15. Regularly reminds you to take short breaks for your eyes.

    It would be great if ManicTime implemented a regularly reminds for eyes.

    When you are working at a computer it is easy to forget about time. This leads to eye strain and other physical problems.

    Screen dims and blocking long breaks every hour (displays the timer showing how much time is left before the end of the break and skip button).
    Before the beginning of a long break in center of the screen displays a notice - "if you want to start a break? - start / take me 3 minutes/ skip". In "strict mode" such notice does not appear,…

  16. You could expand your market if you could obtain the US Gov't time keeping certification.

    I work for a firm that has to keep time in accordance with US Government contractor rules. I've been told that after much research (recently double checked) that we can only use Oracle's time keeping app. There is apparently only one front end that is certified to work with that tool. I am searching for that name of it.

    This would be a huge opportunity for your firm to compete with (then sell out to) Oracle.

  17. Add (back) "Last Used" Date/Time to Recent Tags/Notes Lists

    In previous versions, I seem to remember in at least one, if not all, of the various tag dialogs and menus showing recent tags (e.g., "What will you work on", "Add tag", "Welcome back! Would you like to tag your away time?", etc.), it would show when we last used each listed tag combination or note (if cursor in the Notes input box). Could you add that back?

    (I find it particularly useful for notes because I can't always tell, with my cursor in the Notes input, which notes were previously used with the selected tag combination, and which are…

  19. Enhancing Tracking schedule: Capture activity if user is active even though outside scheduled timeframe.

    Enhancing Tracking schedule: Capture activity if user is active even though outside scheduled timeframe.

    This is useful because the user can then track their "normal" daily usage and be prompted when they are away but still capture their "extra" usage which is outside the normal working hours.

    An example would be when a crisis occurs.

    Normal I work from 9am to 5pm. I want to be prompted when there are time gaps in my day so I have set up a tracking schedule for 9am to 5pm. THIS WORKS PERFECTLY!

    However, an emergency has occurred and I am now working…
