  1. Arc for iOS location tracking support now that the Moves App has reached EOL status

    I was disappointed to learn today that Facebook is discontinuing the Moves App, as I've relied a lot on it to log my on-site service visits. I've found what I consider is a suitable substitute, the Arc App for iOS. I would really like to see support for this.

    • Track Google Drive and OneDrive folder path too - Document Timeline

      I use AutoTagging on used file folders on my hard drive. However, from files opened on my synchronized Google Drive and OneDrive etc. the folder isn't tracked. It only shows the file name on the documents timeline.

      • Ability to mark more than one tag at a time as billable

        Currently each tag must be marked individually and then set as billable. However, the UI does allow you to select more than one tag at a time. When I select multiple tags and use "set billable" would like all tags to be marked as billable.

        • Auto Tag details

          I'd like to see the details of what makes up my auto tags. I have one called Development that consists of various software I use when developing apps. It would be great if I could filter by that Auto Tag, but still see the data for the individual apps that make up that Auto Tag.
          Thanks

            • Ctrl Z should do Undo

              I thought there was no Undo function in ManicTime because Ctrl Z does nothing. I just realised there's an Undo button in the top right corner. Please associate the Ctrl Z shortcut to this undo function. It's the universal keyboard shortcut for Undo

              • Better JIRA integration and tag display

                The JIRA plugin is really great, but also very slow when there are a lot of projects and issues. And I need to wait ~1 minute to re-scan the tags every time I create a new issue.

                Can it have an option to only scan the projects I subscribed to?

                Also, a lot of times, the issue titles don't fit in the 'tag picker' window, so I'm not sure what I actually clicked on. Please make it resizable!

                Similarly, the 'Add tag' window has a very strange resize behavior, where at the maximum width the 'note' section and the 'tags'…

                • periodic poll what your working on

                  I like the reminder to check what I'm working on. However I find it to be to open. Can ManicTime require a reponse? That way I activaly have to say what I'm working on.

                  I would like to extend the request and also ask other questions; like whom I have consulted for the thing I'm working on, is it planned work or ad-hoc, is it my main work of a supporting task that I'm working on.
                  I don't want a long survey, just small questions and hence at a different time interval

                    • Skype for business plugin für locally installed Exchange server

                      As documented the Skype for business plugin only works with Office 365 and not with a locally installed Exchange server (http://support.manictime.com/knowledgebase/articles/1108099-skype-for-business-plugin). We want to push the usage of ManicTime in our company but therefore really want the Skype for business plugin working with our locally installed Exchange server.

                      • Scheduled Backups should be enabled by default

                        ManicTime has a feature for scheduled backups, however these are not enabled by default. I started using manic time about a month ago... I just had my C drive crash and lost my whole database, if the backups had been enabled by default i would have been able to restore since my documents are synchronized

                        • Auto-clear filter when lower-left-window is cleared (all items tagged)

                          In the Day view, if I filter by an application (double-click in the lower-right window).
                          Then in the lower-left window I clear all the issues by assigning them to tags, I want the filter to clear automatically and go back to the full application view again. You could make this an option if someone didn't want it to happen.
                          I must waste several minutes per day either going down to the filter box and clearing, or clicking to another timeline and back again to clear it. I can't see any reason why I'd want the filter to remain especially if…

                          • Manual overwrite

                            Allow a designated tag to overwrite another tag. Suppose you've tagged Task A from 10:00 to 10:15. Then you look and you see that you took a phone call - Task B - from 10:05 to 10:10. If you just tag Task B from 10:05 to 10:10, you'll have that portion double-tagged. But I'd like to manually overwrite so that Task A is broken into two segments (10:00 to 10:05 and 10:10 to 10:15, totaling 10 mins) and Task B overwrites the time for 10:05 to 10:10, totaling 5 minutes.

                            • Show which type of data will be deleted in confirm screen

                              Currently when you highlight a timespan in the timeline you get the option to delete a number of things: tags, applications, screenshots, _everything_, etc. Once you clicked you get a confirmation dialog with title "Delete" and text "Are you sure?".

                              It would be better if the type of data you're deleting is shown once more in the title of this dialog.

                              (It's mostly "screenshots" and "delete all" which scare me because they're next to each other in the menu, and I'm not sure the "Undo" function restores screenshots once deleted.)

                                    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…

                                    • Change note separator on QuickBooks interface

                                      I love how MT allows me to take notes throughout a day, even as I work on different clients and projects, and each client's notes are combined into a single billable total with all the notes in QuickBooks. This is a great capability.

                                      Small request...When I work several times throughout a day for a given client, and record a separate note each time, the individual notes are passed to QuickBooks combined but automatically separated by a semicolon (;).

                                      I wonder if this feature could be configurable to suppress the semicolon, or specify a space, or a period. Personally, I prefer…

                                        I can't pay $60 or $70 for a single user license. I want to use it for personal use, at work, not as a contractor, to track how I spent my time so I can enter my time in JIRA more accurately (since I have little sense of time at the end of the day). I sure would like a coupon code or a middle pricing tier.
