  1. easier access to tag editor

    Current design: the tag editor is hidden away as the only item of an unnamed drop down menu at the left side edge of the tags timeline, which also means it takes two clicks to get to it. This also leads to a slightly confusing unused vertical area across all tag lines.

    Proposed solution: add a tag editor button to the Tags group in the Day ribbon.

  2. Screenshot Database for Security Purposes

    I like the screenshot feature for myself to remind myself what I was actually doing at a particular time. But the idea of screenshots so plainly visible to anyone with access to that folder means potential security breach and even compromised PII.

    If the screenshots could be saved in a small compressed format that could be saved in a secure database with limited retention like a couple days I think that would be a big help. Typically the screenshots are only useful for me when Im performing end of day tagging and I need to remember what I was doing…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. "Until next boot" time tracking off option

    Often times my usage times are not in one big, continuous chunk, but involve multiple boots. What this means is sometimes, I want to turn off the tracking which I have to do using the "Go Off The Record" option, in which the most appropriate option is "Until you turn on".

    When I do this, I MUST turn it back on manually after boot for it to start/continue tracking, which is easy to forget the next day/morning and indeed I have done so :( A simple option that auto tracks on boot could really help.

  6. nightly

    Firefox Nightly works almost always like Firefox, but manictime doesn't know that it's more or less the same. Hopefully the firefox document timeline plugin could recognize "Nightly" and "Firefox Developer Edition" with only a minimal adaptation.

  7. Timesheet Basic Advanced UI

    I often toggle the filters on and off change the group by.
    Having these on different tabs makes this task lots of extra clicks.

  8. In timesheet view have a column to show tags not used in grouped by

    I'd like a column that shows a list of tags not used in the grouped-by clause. (in my case I group by first level tags, so I want to show second level tags and below)

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  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…

  15. 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/yaf_postst163_timeline-connector-for-SQL-query.aspx#post576)

  16. Stop watch

    Could you add a little desktop window (floating) that could be displayed as permanent window on the desktop. The additional window shall display a selectable number of tags in a list (preferable those that are already pinned).
    When someone clicks an list item representing a tagged time it starts the stop watch, if i click again it stops the stop watch and inserts the expired time with the tag clicked. Using this method some clicks that i currently need to do to start the stop watch via task menu.

  17. auto hide timeline

    I have 8 timelines and some of them are not important or empty. Idea is on dropdown for timeline \/ allow some additional options like:
    1. shrink height or dissapear if necessary
    2. auto-hide if empty
    3. priority - always show
    Also, font should adjust if resized.

  18. Vertical Timeline for Side of Screen

    I think it would be really cool if the timeline could be represented vertically. This way, I could keep the MT window up on my screen at all times as a thin window on the sides. Think something along the lines using Windows Snap to split your screen, then making the ManicTime window very narrow. See screenshot. Like that, only timelines are vetical. Yeah. =)

  19. clipboard tracking

    To speed up tagging time with notes and to have another tool to see what I was doing, it would be nice to have a timeline that is tracking what was in the clipboard. Then it would be nice to be able to access what was in the clipboard during a time being tagged, so that as I am entering in notes for the time tagged I can paste items that were in the clipboard.

    To give you my real case scenario. I'm an IT service provider that bills by the hour. I see error messages, run commands, and go…

  20. detect activity of programs

    Some jobs require rendering or export session, during this time the program still working on the project even if i dont move the mouse, but Manic time register as "away". It would be nice if the tracking remain active during the programs activities.
