  1. conditional autotags

    If would be incredibly helpful if the autotags could use conditional logic/rules. Some examples are:

    I would like to append the autotag 'OvertimeRate' to anything in work tags that are matched between 7pm and 7am so I can bill at different rates.

    I would like an autotag only be applied if Tag matching a specific word is not present. This way I will no longer have to spend time checking my timesheet for double billing.

    Thank you for the great product.

    • Option to fix Screenshot alignment

      While moving the mouse curser over the timeline, the position of the thumbnail often flips ... from the left to the right of the cursor.
      This makes it sometimes very difficult to catch the screenshots.
      I'd prefer am option to "lock the position of the screenshot" to ONE side of the cursor. Even if they get out of sight in extreme situations.

      • Allow custom date ranges to be stored in statistics tab

        Two similar but independent features for the 'Statistics' tab to add custom date ranges:

        1. Allow the user to add new date ranges to the preset dropdown box.
        These can be 'fixed' ranges with a start/end date set by the user and a label.
        Additionally it would be great if the user could add 'relative' dates like "This week", etc.
        This would be helpful for countries with financial years end partway through the year (Eg Australia)
        It would also be useful for custom development 'Sprint' periods.

        2. Allow each 'statistics tab' to have its own date range that can be…

        • Ability to report outdated documentation

          I'd like to see this feature on your support website. The documentation is outdated on some pages and tells me to go to places that don't exist or show screenshots from older versions of the application which have changed.
          for example http://support.manictime.com/knowledgebase/articles/686349-advanced-search
          It would be nice if on the support article we could report outdated information so that it could be updated.

          • Ability to reorder saved Timesheet reports

            My list of Timesheets (in the "Load" drop-down) is getting long and I wish there were a way to manage them better. Ideally, It'd be great if there were grouping options, but at the least, I'd like to be able to change the order of them in the list. Right now it seems that it just orders them by "create date" - with the newest ones at the bottom of the list.

            I wondered if perhaps they were stored in a config text file and would be easy to reorder, but I didn't find any, so I guess they are…

            • Default to PM when entering 12

              Very small change. When entering a start or end time in the Edit popup, can it default to PM when entering 12 as this causes great pain when getting it wrong as it wipes out other tags.
              Thanks
              Caleb

              • Option to not show notes in 'Add tag' window

                Every time I want to choose a tag, the previous typed notes are also saved to choose from (see attachment)
                I would only like to choose from tags. And then still I would like to use the notes field, but only to be saved for that specific activity.

                Under settings, Display, you can choose not to show Notes in 10 recent tags drop down menu, and to not show them in summary in bottom right, but you can't remove them from Add tag window. A similar setting would be helpful in this window too.

                  I would like to see how much I use my secondary monitor vs primary monitor for ergonomic reasons. This would help me to change behavior so I use my primary computer screen more.

                  • WhatsApp Discussion Thread Visibility

                    Recently I've found that I'm spending a lot more time in WhatsApp (desktop app) for business reasons, but it's very difficult to tag as one has to examine the screenshot of each entry to determine who the conversation was with.

                    Would it be possible to build some sort of plugin that would reflect more details about the WhatsApp conversations, maybe who the conversation was with? I realise it's a different beast (I think WhatsApp Desktop is a Modern UI app), but I don't think it's going away.

                    • Automatic fill in-between tagged acitvities

                      I use files and filter tags to categorize my time. after I've done this I'm often left with a lot of small strips of tagged time with a lot of small untagged time in between, as shown in the screenshot. In order to know the full time I spent on the activities I need to manually expand the tags to fill the entire time. It would be nice to have an option when we right-click on a selected area, to automatically expand the tags to fill the in-between untagged time according to the surrounding tag. There could be a treshold…

Also track or extract the data from SolidWorks PDM such and checking out and in same file, create dates for drawings, elapsed time postable into the title block of the prints and include model create and duration of time on each version, user ID's tied to model, assembly and print data....

                        • Minimize Screenshot viewer when main window is minimized

                          I use ManicTime on two monitors, with the Screenshot viewer full-screen on the second monitor. When I'm done with ManicTime and I minimize the main window, it would be nice if the Screenshot viewer minimized as well.

                          • Show the correct timeline when travelling to different time zones

                            I travel to different time zones and the way that the data is recorded or displayed is on the previous time zone and not with the time of the current time zone.

                            Potential solution 1:
                            Store the data in UTC and convert to the local timezone to display it properly.

                            Potential solution 2:
                            Allow selecting the time zone to use to display the timeline in the UI.

                              There should be an option to make the screenshots stretch/scale in the viewer window while outside (and even inside) freeze mode.

                              • Automatic tag rules limited by time

                                It would be interesting have the possibility to limit a tag rule to a specific limit of time. Example of use: a common file name used to identify a specific project, but that in the future (or in the past) maight be used for other projects (eg default applications filenames like MS Office).

                                  One feature, which has been constantly neglected so far is -- sound --. The idea is to connect a sound with a certain event, usually when a time interval is over.

                                  To emphasize, that I'm not alone in this wish, I'm summarizing the threads which has also expressed this issue:

                                  • Support for ADOBE SUITE + MAXON CINEMA 4D DOCUMENTS

                                    I have tried Manictime, and it meet my needs. But I'm a Designer, I use about all the Adobe CC Suite, and Cinema 4D (well sometime I use Blender too). Unfortunatly Manictime doesn't record such documents, and so I can't filter them. I think that Manictime could meet the interest of lot of designer, if you add such feature. Yhanks very much.

                                      • visual studio

                                        I see a plugin for Visual Studio. Can you please create plugins for Notepad++, Visual Studio Code, and Atom.

                                        Thanks!

                                        • VSO/VSTS Integration

                                          I noticed there is a Plug for Git. I would like plugins for VSO (cloud) and VSTF (on-prem) integration.
