    I finally managed to correctly install the ManicTime server on my Synology NAS using Docker. Given the Docker tool provided on the Synology I had to find a workaround to get the admin username and password entered during the initial setup.
    In addition to the instruction on the ManicTime Docker page (https://registry.hub.docker.com/r/manictime/manictimeserver), on the Synology you need to perform the following steps:
    Start the ManicTime image in Docker. When needed, change the container name.
    Then go to the advanced settings and open the Volume tab. Here you must bind a directory on your NAS (I used a folder named ‘Data’ nested in a dedicated Docker folder) to the \app\Data map from ManicTime.
    Then open the Network tab. Here I ticked the box to allow this container to use the same network as the host. I.e. the 8080 port must be available / not in use by any other app!
    Next open the Environment tab. First add to variables: ADMIN with the e-mail account for the administrator as value and PASSWORD with the password to be used as its value.
    Next I clicked Apply and started the server.
    Check the log and terminal whether the username and password are accepted. Then you can find ManicTime using the Network address of the host with port 8080 (http://<your server name or IP address>:8080).

    You can change the directory for the screenshots to a directory with limited rights and reduce the retention time to just one day. Also you can exclude critical programs from screenshots.

    Use auto tag and the directory / path as criterium to distinguish between the games. Or use docs used by each to distinguish.

    This can already be done in settings. Check the box about 'not tracking all processes' and then select the programs to include or exclude fom screenshots.

    You can do this by creating autolabels based on the directory name. I have my folders ordered by client and project code & name. I created a set of autolabels, with the folder path (containing either the code or name) as criterium, to set apart the time worked per client or project.

    This can easily be done by renaming the tags in the tag edit window. Ctrl-C the tag name you want to use, then select the tag with a 'wrong' name and click the rename button. Then Ctrl-V the 'right' name in place. MT will merge all tracked data for both tags in the 'right' tag.

    There is a part-solution for this... I use the Moves App on my iPhone. This app tracks my whereabouts and the resulting (online) data can be read using a plugin in ManicTime. For me the additional info on my whereabouts is sufficient. I can see when I was on the road, went out for a walk, by bike or had a meeting at a certain location. With the rules I add relevant parts of this info to the auto-timeline. Thus I can add certain locations to a specific client’s record. When needed you can add more detailed info (like being in a conference room, a normal office space or whatever, Moves has an accuracy of approximately 50 mtrs in pinning the location of the device) to the Moves App and this will be visible in the ManicTime Timeline.

    Hi,

    I made this possible by making tag groups/trees. When I tag anything a tag always is part of en group of three. The first tag is the highest level, the second the middle level and the third the actual tag. All my tags thus look like this : "5.3. Domotics, 5.3.500. Files, 5.3.50020. Maintenance".
    I have made a separate Excel table, containing all tags, to allow easier management of all tags. In this excel I can add new projects. The excel automatically generates the tag tree needed for each specific task within each project/sub-project. I then add the new tag tree to MT to allow easy selection.

    Whenever I enter a tag, the search window shows all tags with maintenance (for example) allowing me to select which group/sub group the specific maintenance belongs to.

    It works fine for me.
