  1. Screenshots Text Searchable / OCR

    I desperately want to be able to search the text within screenshots. This would make my life 100000x easier. As I switch between many clients I have to work my way through each screenshot working out what client that bit of time was for etc.

    • Screenshots available in AutoTag timeline

      Screenshots are currently limited to Application and Document timelines it seems (this is logical)

      When I suspect my rules have incorrectly matched something, there is no way to see the screenshot captured at that point. I think that would be quite useful as a quick mechanism to confirm the auto tag in question

      • Pick tag color when creating new tag

        It would be nice to be able to choose a new tag's color as we create it. Assign a random color but display it to the user and allow the user to change it.
        Right now we have to create the tag, then go into the tag editor, find the new tag, edit it and pick the new color.

        • Alphabetize Recent Tags

          I have a lot of active tags at any point in time, so I show 40 recent tags (Settings->Display). It would be helpful if those tags appeared alphabetically.

            I would like to move tag entries along the timeline. Now I have to do it by dragging the starting point and the ending point.

            • Absorb/Append - Easier Navigation (Alphabetical Tag) List When Assigning Rule

              In the absorb/append rule window (Edit Autotag -> Advanced), the tags that can be absorbed or appended are listed in a random order - would it be possible to alphabetize them?

              • 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?

                • Add Duration Option for "Off the Record"

                  I often find myself using the "Off the Record" capability but forgetting to go back "On the Record". I subsequently lose tracking data until I realize I'm still in "Off the record" mode. Please add sub-options to "Go Off the Record" to automatically resume tracking after a certain time period expires (one hour for example), or add an option to Settings to resume "On the Record" after a user-defined time period.

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • Jira Tags - Merge the description of the jira tag with the auto-tag

                        Allow tags that match the jira format to automatically link in the relevent Jira description of the issue for easier understanding of the feature that was worked on.

                        When hovering over/viewing #PROJ-123
                        it would show #PROJ-123 Implement that cool new feature

                        • 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 .

                                  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.

                                    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…

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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…
