  1. Screenshot support for the linux client

    It seems the linux client does not take screenshots now.
    It would be great if it would take screnshots!

    • Disable website tracking for Mac users

      Our main goal is to track time that's tagged to specific projects and not overall productivity. Therefore we feel like if a user feels we are tracking their website usage then it may erode trust in management.

      With the PC version you can disable or white/black list web tracking.

      However this is not possible with the Mac version. It'd be a great addition.

        • Sum of active time shown on analytics/timeline

          I review my employees time on web app screen analytics/timeline. I need to know the total activate time and look at the applications and files they had open. So it would be great to have the sum of active time to left or right of Computer usage bar

          • Grasshopper for Rhino 3D document tracking

            I have had Manictime for about a year now and I just realized that the document time for Rhino3D does not include the working time while I am in the Grasshopper window, this is totally necessary for the time tracking to meet my needs as I spend a significant portion of my computer time in the grasshopper environment.

            • silence pop ups

              I often am sharing my screen for presentations. I've set up the pop-ups to confirm what you're working on. During presentations, it would be great to be able to suppress pop ups for a period of time (1/2 hour increments) rather than have to turn off pop ups then re-enable.

              • Ignore part of the header of an application

                Some applications (Adobe apps in particular) change their headers in response to the zoom level of the active document (ex. Indesign can have a header saying "New document 1.indd @ 100%" and "New document 1.indd @ 50%" etc for the same document).
                Navigating a document while zooming in and out generates a LOT of entries in the Application view that could have been one single entry.

                It would be nice to be able to tell ManicTime to ignore certain parts of a header to produce less header spam.
                Something as simple (though clunky) as "Ignore [@ 50%, @ 100%, @…

                  In custom date range selection, allow also to choose the time of day, i.e. yesterday (or other date) between 1-3 pm.

                  • Record screen video when an application runs

                    Create video recordings for certain applications. For me, I want to record all of my Skype calls automatically (audio and video). Currently I do this manually with SnagIt, but sometimes i forget.

                        • Android Client should log the names of all used aplications - same way as the desktop app

                          Could you please update the Android Client so that it is automatically logging the names of used applications the same way that the desktop application does?

                          This is a deal-breaker for a lot of the clients using it. Just seeing active is nice but it would be way more useful if at least the names of the used applications would be logged. And that should be hard to implement in code at all (speaking as a software engineer).

                          Thank you

                          • 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.

                                • Desktop Widget

                                  The one thing that keeps me from benefiting from using manictime as thoroughly as I could is the stopwatch feature. I don't always get popups reminding me to change. I'd like something similar to Toggl desktop widget where I could easily view what I'm being tracked automatically as doing (autotagged etc), as well as the current manual "stopwatch" tag I've set.

                                  • ManicTime for Mac OS

                                    As a big supporter of Manictime I have now started to work with Apple computers.
                                    ManicTime for mac is extremely desirable as there are several consultants that I know of that wishes a similar tool for Mac.

                                      As often requested in the old Forum, there are quite a few People that like to see a Linux-Version of ManicTime. Main-Focus may be Ubuntu for greatest audience.

                                        Linux version (still tracker only) now works on Ubuntu, Mint, CentOS, RedHat, Debian and Arch Linux.

                                        ManicTime Server also works on Linux, so while still not ideal, you can run ManicTime Server (for UI) and Linux tracker both on Linux.

                                          It is needed to be able to edit rules for autotags. Currently it is possible only by removing rules and adding them again, or adding new and leaving old.
