  1. Linux Server

    Most server technology runs on Linux. A linux server would allow me to use my existing server infrastructure

    • 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.

            • Tracking

              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?

              • Auto tag function based on file placement and Support for archicad

                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.

                        • Statistics Bar Chart: Allow Ordering of Groups

                          When viewing the bar chart for a Custom Statistics tab, I'd like to be able to specify a display order for the defined filter groups in the chart. In the table above, each column is sortable, but that doesn't seem to affect the display of the bars in the chart below.

                          Ideally, there would be one more data point stored with each "filter" group - that of a sort order - an integer field which could be updated using the "Edit..." button, or, optionally, via drag-n-drop in the table.

                          Then the chart could use the integer value to determine the…

                            • Configurable time intervals in Timeline view

                              Whilst it's currently possible to zoom in/out in the Day\Timeline view, you have to do this manually and it can be very granular so you can end up recording to the second.

                              I would like to see an option to be able to configure the default view e.g. 5min, 15min interval etc.

                              This would ease recording and categorising tags for organisations that have rules around minimum billable time, or minimum time recorded intervals e.g. 5 or 15mins particularly when auto-tagging may nto be appropriate

                              • Paint with tags

                                Select a tag from a list and just use the cursor to apply to timeline. Right now you can do similar, but in reverse order. Select the time, click Add Tag, select tag from list. My idea would be to have a list on the side of the main screen while using the Paint Brush tool. The tool and tag stay active.

                                  I don't ever really see the little bubble notifications in the corner of the screen reminding me about my current timer, or to tag untagged time.

                                  It would be nice if a new window could pop up, or a sound.

                                  I have two monitors, and I am rarely looking at that bottom corner.

                                  • Exporting Tags + Applications in one file

                                    When I export and import Applications, it would be good to see an additional column containing the corresponding Tags I used on them so I can easily verify if my tags are correct. That's Applications+Tags in one file export/import.

                                        • Ability to delete old history or option for auto clear

                                          I used the program for more than 2 years and the DB grew strongly (300 MB)
                                          This slows down the program when I open client
                                          How can I delete a history for specified period? Not all DB
