  1. 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.…

  2. 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.

  3. tag shortcuts should work also inside tag window

    It would be nice if configured tag shortcuts would also work in an opened tag windows (so shortcut could be used to tag a time in the automatic popup after returning from a break)

  4. Draggable Timeline (middle/right mouse drag)

    I find it slightly cumbersome to navigate the timelines within a day.
    I know there are currently two ways to do this:
    1. Dragging the window in the fixed line below the timelines
    2. Crtl+Mousewheel

    Both are not perfect for me - dragging the timelines (not the orange bar) button would be great.
    This could either be triggered by a middle or a right mouse drag, or with SPACE+Left mouse drag (I think Photoshop uses this combination) - but I like the first two better, because the require less action.

  5. Sound when an event occurs

    One feature, which has been constantly neglected so far is -- sound --. The idea is to connect a sound with a certain event, usually when a time interval is over.

    To emphasize, that I'm not alone in this wish, I'm summarizing the threads which has also expressed this issue:

    • (37 Votes) Pomodoro settings : - sound notification when the break is over
    • (3 Votes) Tag Reminder as New Window : - a window pop up with sound.
    • (6 Votes) Pomodoro Timer steals focus: use system tray pop up as an option : a sound could be played to emphasize…

  6. Option to not show notes in 'Add tag' window

    Every time I want to choose a tag, the previous typed notes are also saved to choose from (see attachment)
    I would only like to choose from tags. And then still I would like to use the notes field, but only to be saved for that specific activity.

    Under settings, Display, you can choose not to show Notes in 10 recent tags drop down menu, and to not show them in summary in bottom right, but you can't remove them from Add tag window. A similar setting would be helpful in this window too.

  7. Plugin to export to online invoicing service(s)

    I'm guessing many of us use ManicTime because we bill customers based on time spent. I'd like to automatically generate online invoices based on ManicTime data.

    Personally I'm a fan of Xero.com, though it's possible there are more QuickBooks and Freshbooks users amongst ManicTime users.

  8. Ctrl Z should do Undo

    I thought there was no Undo function in ManicTime because Ctrl Z does nothing. I just realised there's an Undo button in the top right corner. Please associate the Ctrl Z shortcut to this undo function. It's the universal keyboard shortcut for Undo

  10. Merge tags / autotags

    I'm finding that I have lots of near-duplicate autotags in my system. I would like to clean this up by merging similar autotags, but there's no easy way to do this. Ideal workflow would be something like:

    Select two tags.
    Click "Merge tags."
    Optionally update tag title.
    All rules from both tags now appear under the one remaining tag.

  11. More shortcuts please...

    It would be nice to be able to use more shortcuts. For example: Create Autotag rule, Copy Autotags to tag timeline etc. The ideal solution would be to have the opportunity to assign shortcut to every function.

  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. 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.

  15. 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

  17. Merge Documents/Application Timelines from different devices

    Using multiple devices in my workflow, and having changed computers a few times, I now have multiple Timelines for Application and Documents and it's very cumbersome to calculate how much time I have spend on a specific file/folder. It would be nice to have the option to merge multiple inputs to a single timeline. I understand the risk and/or possibility of concurrency or superposition but having 11 timeline to search through separately make time reporting more difficult.

  20. Support for ADOBE SUITE + MAXON CINEMA 4D DOCUMENTS

    I have tried Manictime, and it meet my needs. But I'm a Designer, I use about all the Adobe CC Suite, and Cinema 4D (well sometime I use Blender too). Unfortunatly Manictime doesn't record such documents, and so I can't filter them. I think that Manictime could meet the interest of lot of designer, if you add such feature. Yhanks very much.
