  1. Go off the record until configured time

    I work different shift patterns and use the computer for personal as well as business. I'd like the ability to go off record until a pre-configured time, i.e. until I start work the following day. My PC usage often goes past midnight, so go off record until tomorrow doesn't work. I'd like the ability to set a default go on record time within configuration, then within the system tray icon "Go of record until" menu have a 5th option called "Until xx:xx" where xx:xx is the pre-configured time.

    I'd also like a 6th menu option called something like "Until ??:??".…

  2. Linux Client - Fully Local UI

    Currently, the Linux client lacks its own UI - it must be used with a separate server to act as its UI. The problem is, if you're already using a remote central server to coordinate multiple clients you can't run that server locally - and having to depend on a remote server as the only form of UI makes it impossible to work while offline (i.e. on flights, out in the field, etc). Furthermore, the only way to use screenshots is by syncing them - which will consume an immense amount of additional data, which may not be feasible if…

  4. Automatically end stopwatch when inactive

    I really love the tool. However, it would be great to automatically stop the stopwatch whenever I go inactive, as I do not want overlapping tags since during inactivity I am usually not continuing the task of the stopwatch.

  5. Screenshots Text Searchable / OCR

    I desperately want to be able to search the text within screenshots. This would make my life 100000x easier. As I switch between many clients I have to work my way through each screenshot working out what client that bit of time was for etc.

  6. Stretch/Scale Screenshots Option

    There should be an option to make the screenshots stretch/scale in the viewer window while outside (and even inside) freeze mode.

  8. Show URL in the applications list

    I'd like to see the URL in the application list. It currently only shows the title of the page, but when working on a ticketing system, it can always be the same title, but at least with the URL we can quickly search for ticket ID. It would also be nice if we could have a contextual menu (right-click) option to open the URL in the browser (like in the documents list).

  9. Notification when using Timers

    A modal desktop notification when using Timers or Pomodoro.

    Sometimes I don't know that my timer finished if I don't check with Manictime icon in the tray.

  10. Minimum Activity Duration - UPDATE/FIX

    Currently the minimum activity duration does not work as a user would expect it.

    Example:

    I set it to 60 seconds.

    I have Chrome open for 5 minutes, this all works good.
    I then have outlook open for 40 seconds
    I then have calculator open for 30 seconds.
    It will list that I have had calculator open for 70 seconds total when it fact that is incorrect.

    My suggestion would be to keep it as the main application Google Chrome until I have had another application open for more than my specified time eg I have calculator open for more…

  12. Make Skype Calls Timeline work again

    Skype calls timeline doesn't currently work. It says "Skype database schema is not valid" when you try to add the skype timeline.

    It would be great if Manictime could be updated to work with the new skype database structure.

  13. Custom Calendar for Work Time

    Hi. in my company there are different work times depending on the weel day, i.e. Monday to Thursday from 8 to 18 and Friday from 7:30 to 14.

    This also implies that the expected time is not 8 hours at day, is 8:30 from Monday to Thurdsay and 6 hours on friday, total 40 per week but is not 8 per day.

    Not sure if there are more companies with this kind of schedule, for me seems interesting

  14. Compatibility through WineHQ

    Afaic, ManicTIme is focused in Windows machines, with a tracker available for the other platforms. So someone on these other platforms can use the service (even though a bit cumbersomely compared to windows) even without a full port that we would like.

    The hickup in this, is that if he wants to use the WIndows App (let's admit it is way more useful for individuals than the server web page) he has to launch a VM every time.

    Having said these, understanding that a full port to other platforms can be costly for the ManicTime Team, I would like to…

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

  17. Cisco PBX call tracking timeline

    Record start/end time, number, name or other identifying information on a separate timeline

    The Cisco system (and others, I'm guessing) have web portals (and hopefully APIs) for individual users to access their call records from a central place, but those would require authentication to a central system.

    I was able to dial my attached phone from within Outlook and from a company web phone directory, a la Skype, though, so there is some sort of mechanism to control the physical phone itself from the desktop. Hopefully this control would also include the ability to read that phone's call log, rather…

  18. Include Autotags in Statistics

    Right now, the Statistics reports doesn't include Autotags - you have to copy autotags to regular tags in order to get them to show in Statistics. This is counterintuitive and not user-friendly: the whole purpose of autotags is to automatically tag certain activities, and not to include them in Statistics reports means those reports are inaccurate.

    I have ALL my activities autotagged, and then monitor a statistics report to see how much time I've actually spend working as opposed to slacking off, surfing the web, etc. If I haven't put in enough time then I can decide to stay later.…

  19. Alphabetize Recent Tags

    I have a lot of active tags at any point in time, so I show 40 recent tags (Settings->Display). It would be helpful if those tags appeared alphabetically.

  20. Button on Away window to mark that you weren't away

    The Away screen is very useful, but sometimes shows up when I am not away.

    Example 1: I am looking at the screen and thinking about something for a few minutes.

    Example 2: I am on a VOIP phone call

    I think it would be helpful if there was a button on the Away screen that said "I wasn't away".

    If you clicked it, it would allocate the away time to last activity recorded.
