  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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?

  6. You need a much better way to deal with conflicts in autotags

    Conflicts in autotags are taking me forever. There are so many of them. You need a feature that detects them and that has some form of wizard that will scroll through them all and just ask the user to select which is the tag they want most, either on a day basis or by project, or some other way.

  7. Automatic prompt for call notes

    For the add in call log on Android, it would be nice to be prompted in some way to enter notes about the call which can make it easier to recall events and subjects when tagging later

  8. Improve to save new edited tags

    When I edit new tag, and key in esc, the edit window is closed and the typed text is gone. In this case please ask to save or forgett the text. Another tip is save text in between with key ctrl-S, not only with OK button.

  9. Customise export formatting

    Customise how ManicTime can export time entries (or timesheets), by being able to add fields and separators.

    For example, to export time into Carpe Diem Web, the format required is: Tags and narrations in double-quotation marks, and time in decimal hours shown with the word "hour" after.

    In this case, the ManicTime user could go into ManicTime's Settings, and set up the formatting for exporting to the clipboard as:

    Time (decimal)
    Text: " hour ""
    Tag1
    Text: " "
    Notes
    Text """

    ManicTime users who use other similar time-entry software can customise their export options to suite their system.

  10. 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.

  11. replace tags

    My workflow is to search for keywords. Sometimes the keywords get tagged with the wrong tag, which I notice when doing a different search. I then need to "delete" tags, and re-tag everything in the search with a different tag. It would be great if instead of "Add tag..." I could "Add and Replace tag..."

  12. Installation without admin rights

    ManicTime needs admin rights for installation which is restricted in lots of companies. But there are software which can be installed without admin rights like Visual Studio Code. It is installed in C:\users\youruser\AppData\Local\Programs

    It would be very nice if manic time could do the same if it's possible.

  13. Add Display Setting for First day of Week - Sunday, or Monday

    I do a lot of work with systems that are Europe based and all of them have weeks start on Monday and end on Sunday (Which I rather like... The weekend, is the weekend, not the week book ends)
    Without this capability I'm always fighting the Timesheet and can't use "Previous Week", for example. I always have to use a Custom and set the begin/end dates. I first looked for that feature in Settings -> Display. I don't know if there is a better place.

  15. 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.

  16. Shortcut for "back"

    I think a "back" shortcode / button would be really helpful. This way I could quickly undo any wrongly made changes. I couldn't find one yet because ctrl + z doesn't work?

  17. Timesheet Daily Notes

    Please add the ability to export or view the timesheet notes by day rather than just combined in the last column. That way the tag notes can show what was worked on each day which is often required for projects.

  18. Add export option 'All timelines' instead of each timeline seperately

    By clicking [settings-symbol] -> 'Import,Export' it is very easy to export all data recorded. However you get 4 seperate files.

    There are multiple options to export data to xlsx or csv, but none of them puts the label, usage-, program- and document information next to each other in columns (just like the main screen of Manic time has these timelines above each other).The easiest way I have found to do this is to export each timeline (4 options: labels, somputer usage, programs and documents) seperately and put them together in Excel, but that is quite an exercise.

    If the file…

  19. 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
