Feature requests

I have a feature request ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. 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

    NOTE: workaround for recording time as whole mins can be found in this request "Tagging snapping…

    • 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.

      • Tag Reminder as New Window

        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

              • Exclude full screen applications from screenshots

                Right now we can include or exclude screenshots by window title. I don't want to capture screenshots when I am watching movies or playing games. Right now I have to put in a new exclude filter every time I install a new game.

                Would be better if there was a checkbox "Do not take screenshots of full-screen applications"

                • "Show only tagged activites" for autotags

                  That would be nice. I'm a lazy developer, so I'd like to set tags for certain activities just once. If I can't see what I already (auto)tagged, I don;t know what I missed.

                  So basically the "Show only tagged activites", but for autotags

                  • Automatically end stopwatch when inactive

                    I really love the tool. However, it would be great to automatically stop the stopwatch whenever I go inactive, as I do not want overlapping tags since during inactivity I am usually not continuing the task of the stopwatch.

                    • More rounding options (5m, 10m) and hide seconds when rounding

                      Would be nice to have more options in the "Round to" drop list (like 5m & 10m).

                      When rounding is enabled, the seconds could be hidden from the generated report since they are always ':00'.

                        • Individual worktime days

                          Hi,

                          thank you for implementing the individual worktime settings for workhours.

                          http://support.manictime.com/forums/222041-feature-requests/suggestions/10220976-worktime-settings-per-user-per-day

                          In our company we have employees who work only 2 or 3 days a week. Can you add the possibility to set up the expected workdays per week?

                          Thank you very much!

                          • Statistics or weekdays and hour of a day

                            Hello,

                            I would like to be able to see usage statistics about different weekdays (i.e. Monday, Sunday...) in a given period (i.e. last year).

                            I would also like to be able to see usage statistics about different hours of a day (i.e. from 12:00 to 13:00) in a given period (i.e. last year).

                              ZIP compressed brings it down to 83MB.

                                  In the tag selection you can filter to select tagged/untagged time. However, I have an autotag timeline that merges certain autotags and the manual tags. I would like to fill in the gaps with "unautoagged" time by just dragging and selecting these gaps.

                                  • Auto-tag based on other tags

                                    For example I google ManicTime and click on the ManicTime website. I can tag the latter activity based on its URL, but how do I tag the former as "ManicTime, ~googling"? Sometime the keyword does not go into the title, so I can't use it to autotag. Both the document and application timelines are the same, so I can't use append tag. The absorb tag just has the same color of the activities in between in the timeline, not a tag that I actually want.

                                    This is also useful when you want an autotag to be prioritized, that is no…

                                      First of all: This is an amazing tool! I really appreciate your work.

                                      Currently the Jira plugin configurator allow you to only filter shown issues by Projects and Issue Statuses. Sometimes I want to report time into issues that are not assigned to me, and if I select to show all issues, regardless of assignee, I get hundred thousands of issues. It would be nice if I could instead (or optionally) filter Jira issues with JQL in the Jira plugin setting window. That would offer a lot more freedom to the user to decide what Jira issues should be shown…

                                      • save statistics page for later

                                        currently, it is already possible to save the statistics graph as an image.

                                        i would like to be able to save the data i'm browsing as an internal manictime file, that i could open later and see the same results, being able to tweak them. essentially, then, loading this saved file would open up the statistics page with the filters and results loaded.

                                        • Secondary tag timeline

                                          i would like to see an option to add a second tag timeline to the main screen. when adding a tag by selecting a timeframe, there should be an option in the menu "add [secondary tag customized label]" below "add tag" option. potential use cases are:
                                          * tracking your mood separately from activities
                                          * keeping a sepcific project on a separate timeline
                                          * tracking your location (using tags such as "home", "work", "bus") independently of activities
                                          * tracking your company (alone / co-workers / with partner, what have you)
                                          ... and countless others.

                                          this would make manictime more customizable.
