  1. 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!

  3. Autotag to cloud or automatic copy of autotags to tags

    There are similar ideas for desktop statistics, but let me explain a workflow we are using with Cloud version.

    First of all, we went with Manic Time because for our use case it almost works automatically. Also our Manic Time use is based on trust.

    So we have a first rule that if you do something personal, you stop Manic Time.

    We also have a rule for work browser and personal browser (which we have excluded from tracking) because these days you "have to" do some personal browsing through out the day.

    Then we have a set of apps that…

  4. Add functionnal keyboard support

    So far the app is absolutely mouse-dependant. Those little tick boxes are nearly impossible to click with a touchscreen and there doesn't seem to be a way to toggle them with the keyboard. Hence the app is unconvenient to use without a mouse such as with a laptop or tablet. I would expect to be able to switch between the Timeline, the Details and the Summary panels using TAB, and to be able to toggle individual items in the Details and Summary using SPACEBAR

  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. Screenshot difference compression

    Manictime's screenshot feature is a life saver. But it also takes up a ton of space using a full separate image for each screenshot. 90% of the time, adjacent screenshots are nearly identical, except for some text on the screen. Huge storage efficiency could be gained by using difference calculation between screenshots.

    For example:
    1. Every 10 minutes, take a fresh screenshot. Store it as a png like normal.
    2. Every 15 seconds thereafter, take a new screenshot to memory
    3. Using a library like ImageMagick, calculate the subtraction from the most recent png screenshot and the new screenshot in…

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  10. Merged Timelines View

    It would be very helpful to be able have a merged timeline view with the Applications and Documents merged together. This would give you a much better view of where you spent your time.

  11. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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

  16. Copy screenshots to clipboard

    To speed up to process getting a screenshot into a document, email, web or whatever, it would be awesome to not only save and open a screenshot but also copy it direct to the clipboard, from where it can go anywhere

  19. Personal Daily Summary Notes Tag

    Adding the functionality to append a tag (that is not counted towards your daily hours) for personal note taking inside the manic time app where you can write your summary of the things you have done/doing for the day while you tag your times in the company.

    These daily notes can later be aggregrated into a weekly summary which can be stored, extracted, exported to another app such as Teamwork, MS Word, Notes etc.

  20. notification

    I'd like to know if Manictime can add notification function when one application starts on one device? It is useful for us to track my children's phone and computer usage. The notification can be email, SMS or phone call etc.
