Timesheet reports - highlight selection and calculate sum in status bar like Excel
This is me being lazy and generating a month report for example and clicking different entries for a total time of those highlighted entries.
After generating any type of report, I can either shift click a start and end point to multiple select or press CTRL and choose a number of different entries. It would be really good the total of this selection was calculated in the status bar, similar to Excel.

I second this.
Just put a checkbox beside each of the "group by" fields that says "Sub-Total?" If checked, it inserts a total line and provides a subtotal of that grouping.
I am often wanting to separate out my billable and non-billable. I need to see both - but I have to run two separate timesheets and then combine. For quick at-a-glance timesheets this is a pain.
Seems like if you had one tag for (Proof/Server/Support/Wireframes) specific activities you could get the total you want by adding that tag to the search or doing a depth-N, and only seeing those results.
Hmm, Having this sub-totals feature would probably mean I don't need this one:
Awesome Idea, I'd definitely use this!
Yes "Sum of Selected" is definitely more flexible, I think it will as-you-say help with other tasks I need to complete. I will be pretty happy with that :-)
That will push this suggestion way down my wish-priority list, but probably not off the bottom.
P.S. Manic Time is awesome, love your work!
I'm much more inclined to the other two options. Excel sum would be handy in other parts of the app as well. And maybe we could also keep timesheet UI on a single tab. It would probably make sense to move the buttons up top and show them horizontally.
This one is the most complicated, because why stop at the first level, why not show subtotal for second and third as well. Of course it would make sense to have an option up to which level you'd like to see the subtotal.
We will start with excel way and see how that works out. Its also more versatile since you can see the total across tags.
For my time reporting, in some cases I need time broken down by tag-level-1, and in some cases by tag-level-2, this may also vary by phase of project, so after initial build, support tasks need more granular reports (tag level 2), but during build the time needs to be reported in aggregate (tag level 1).
To address this it would be great if a sub-total row for all items of the same level-1 tag was an option I could turn on.
Workaround is to keep toggling tag level, (which relates to: http://support.manictime.com/forums/222041-feature-requests/suggestions/9913263-timesheet-basic-advanced-ui )
This ticket also would probably address my need but not so elegantly:
