  1. Exclude away time and power off time from statistics

    I use a secondary computer for a specific purpose and I'd like to have statistics on how much I used this computer during the week. However, away time and power off time are included in the statistics making the total duration values meaningless. Basically, extend the "Do not track" options to include away time and power off time.

            • 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.

              • Absorb/Append - Easier Navigation (Alphabetical Tag) List When Assigning Rule

                In the absorb/append rule window (Edit Autotag -> Advanced), the tags that can be absorbed or appended are listed in a random order - would it be possible to alphabetize them?

                • Disable password popup after coming back from away

                  I'd like to disable the password protection popup after becoming active from away. Reason: In a company environment, the program can be used in a rogue-like fashion. Currently the password protection popup prevents the program from truly being hidden.

                  • 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.

                    • Add Duration Option for "Off the Record"

                      I often find myself using the "Off the Record" capability but forgetting to go back "On the Record". I subsequently lose tracking data until I realize I'm still in "Off the record" mode. Please add sub-options to "Go Off the Record" to automatically resume tracking after a certain time period expires (one hour for example), or add an option to Settings to resume "On the Record" after a user-defined time period.

                      • Disable saveing thumbnails of screenshots

                        At me, thumbnails need about 40-50 percent of diskspace.
                        So it should be possible to disable generation of thumbnails.

                        And MaincTime should ignore missing thumbnails (*_thumbnail.jpg)
                        If I delete thumbnails manualy, many exceptions in errors.log generated

                        2017-06-23 01:48:19.751 E 2624 9 35543166 Exception {"errorType":"System.IO.FileNotFoundException","message":"Die Datei \"C:\\Users\\my_username\\AppData\\Local\\Finkit\\ManicTime\\Screenshots\\2016-11-11\\2016-11-11_00-13-03_thumbnail.jpg\" konnte nicht gefunden werden.","stackTrace":" bei System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath)\r\n bei System.IO.FileInfo.get_Length()\r\n bei Finkit.ManicTime.Common.Plugins.Timelines.Screenshots.CaptureFile.GetFileSize(String filePath)","data":{}}

                        And ManicTime Tracker needs alot of cpu load.

                        • Reduce CPU usage

                          The app sometimes consumes 30-40% of my CPU usage. It would be nice to have an option to force it to use less resources...

                          • Search function in the "add tag" dialog box

                            I need the search function in the "add tag" dialog box. Here I should be able to search for tags and notes. This will be a great help in selecting and using already existing and used tags and notes. An always visible search box in the upper left area of the dialog boxx would be great. The search function should start searching while text / words are still entered.

                                Auto tagging very helps, but tracking collect only header of windows. Some application had same header but content are different. They are contents depends from its command line of application. How about collect command line of active application?

                                  Hi.
                                  If manictime could tag time based on the placment of the file i am working on that would be awsome. I have several projekts, and each project has an own folder with subfolders in windows. On the projeckt there is alot of differnt files,with the onley thing common that they are all placed in the same project folder.
                                  So an auto tag function based on file placement woult be great!

                                  Could you add support for Graphisoft Archicad. It dosent show up in the documnet line correct in manic time.

                                  • Mark tags from tag source

                                    I do not want to run ManicTime Server on my computer, but I want to see which tags originate in my txt file tag source.

                                    My use case: I automatically export tags from my employer's database and book the hours tagged in ManicTime automatically via a custom personal tool. The only time where I have to manually intervene is when I chose a tag that does not exist anymore.

                                    • Shortcut to "Add tag"

                                      Is it possible to "Add tag" to the list of functions that you can assign a short cut to?

                                      If i would like to tag 15 min regardless of the time of day ,or such tag overlapping my last tag, i can not use the shortcut to "tag last untagged time". This is however possible if i chosse "Add tag" from the program window". I would like this function to be more accecible, as i quite often need to include some billing time without fixing it to a specific time on the timeline .

                                      • Tag timeline widgit

                                        I would like to have a tag timeline widgit or minimizing alternativ placing/making the the tag-time line accecible on top of all other windows (horisontal or vertical), approx the same size as the Windows shortcut bar. Same functionality as on the tag timeline in the main program window. This would make it even easier to tag time, and be a good reminder to keep taging on the fly.

                                        • 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.
