  1. Track several tasks simultaneously

    Sometimes, it is possible to perform a bit of multitasking. A task may require attention every 5-10 minutes, in which time another similar task may be performed. - Both tasks are billable.
    An example is server maintenance for a client (or several clients). Installing and configuring updates, software, etc. - Often such tasks are "fragmented" and may be performed in parallel.
    It would be great to be able to have an option in Settings to switch on "Track Multiple tasks simultaneously", which enables several stopwatches in parallel. - This saves me from having to manually tracking it and manually adding…

  2. Tag/Comment the entire day of work

    It would be useful to have the possibility to tag or comment the entire day in order to remember additional facts happened during the day.

  3. timeline connector for SQL query

    I understand there is a feature to construct a custom timeline by accessing some kind of XML data, but it would seem to be useful to be able to extract timelines from remote dbs via normal SQL.

    (this could potentially be implemented on both the Desktop client and Server)

    (this is a request I made in the old forums, just replicating it here for visibility:
    http://forum.manictime.com/yaf_postst163_timeline-connector-for-SQL-query.aspx#post576)

  4. Interface Skins and Classic Style UI

    The old ManicTime looked so much better. I've been using only the classic 2.5.4.0 version as the tags, colours and theme are just so much better to read and represent. I really hate the new UI, sure it's easy enough to use the old version but after sometime lots of bugs and features will be left out to those who want to stick with the classic UI. Please offer Classic style and a Skins options for users, most great programs and techie programs have skinnable options. Nobody wants to be forced using a UI they dislike especially the new look…

  7. Add (back) "Last Used" Date/Time to Recent Tags/Notes Lists

    In previous versions, I seem to remember in at least one, if not all, of the various tag dialogs and menus showing recent tags (e.g., "What will you work on", "Add tag", "Welcome back! Would you like to tag your away time?", etc.), it would show when we last used each listed tag combination or note (if cursor in the Notes input box). Could you add that back?

    (I find it particularly useful for notes because I can't always tell, with my cursor in the Notes input, which notes were previously used with the selected tag combination, and which are…

  8. Grouping of Autotags in Manictime

    It will be better if you can add this feature to segment autotags like (category 1, category 2) and under each category there will be several independent autotags. Currently i have 20 autotags and want to group them into 3 category but that is not possible. These are some suggestion how to implement this.

    1) In Timesheet: It can be added in timesheet generation and giving an option to group autoatags and it will show total time spent under each category.

    2) In Timeline: It can also be displayed in autotag timeline and user will have option whether to show…

  9. tag shortcuts should work also inside tag window

    It would be nice if configured tag shortcuts would also work in an opened tag windows (so shortcut could be used to tag a time in the automatic popup after returning from a break)

  10. Show Colours (Colors) for all tag levels on timeline

    I think it would be great to be able to (optionally) show all tag colours at once.

    eg, a slice tagged by Client1, #Client1-123
    could show 3 bands of colour (or three sub timelines?)

    I just found the ability to skip the first tag when colouring, this is awesome! (but I have to go into every client and change that, which is what I do at the moment, but it would be nice to have a visual of the client as well as the issue number)

  11. Custom Keyboard Shortcuts for Assigning Tags

    The new 0-9 (or Ctrl-0 through Ctrl-9) tag shortcuts are great, but being able to arbitrarily assign any key as a tag shortcut would be even better: 'L' for Lunch, 'P' for Project 1, 'S' for Daily Stand-up Meeting.

    Tag shortcuts are already the most efficient way to tag time. With easier to remember custom mnemonics, this powerful feature would also become one of the most accessible.

  12. Ability to define labeled color sets

    Instead of having to choose each color from the complete color range, have the possibility to defined labeled colors, that can be used in tags/autotags/folders.

  14. You could expand your market if you could obtain the US Gov't time keeping certification.

    I work for a firm that has to keep time in accordance with US Government contractor rules. I've been told that after much research (recently double checked) that we can only use Oracle's time keeping app. There is apparently only one front end that is certified to work with that tool. I am searching for that name of it.

    This would be a huge opportunity for your firm to compete with (then sell out to) Oracle.

  15. Split Tagged Category and Add Across Other Tags

    I use tags to keep track of time spent on billable projects during the day. I use other tags to track time spent on non-project specific tasks, that are still billable. I would like to be able to automatically split this non-project specific time across all billable projects for the day.

  18. In timesheet view have a column to show tags not used in grouped by

    I'd like a column that shows a list of tags not used in the grouped-by clause. (in my case I group by first level tags, so I want to show second level tags and below)

  19. Tags Groups/Categories

    I would like to group some Tags together for some calculations. This could be done either by Grouping Tags to one Aggregating Tag, and thus allowing Tree-Like structure, or by placing Tags to certain Categories (Forest-Like structure).

  20. nightly

    Firefox Nightly works almost always like Firefox, but manictime doesn't know that it's more or less the same. Hopefully the firefox document timeline plugin could recognize "Nightly" and "Firefox Developer Edition" with only a minimal adaptation.
