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. Sound when an event occurs

    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:

    - (37 Votes) Pomodoro settings : - sound notification when the break is over
    - (3 Votes) Tag Reminder as New Window : - a window pop up with sound.
    - (6 Votes) Pomodoro Timer steals focus: use system tray pop up as an option : a sound could be…

    • 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.

      • 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.

            • Merge tags / autotags

              I'm finding that I have lots of near-duplicate autotags in my system. I would like to clean this up by merging similar autotags, but there's no easy way to do this. Ideal workflow would be something like:

              Select two tags.
              Click "Merge tags."
              Optionally update tag title.
              All rules from both tags now appear under the one remaining tag.

              • Remember statistics screen tab

                On the statistics screen i always look at the "top tags"

                It would be nice that manic time remembers that this was the tab that was last viewed, so the next time i go to statistics it already opened "top tags"

                • Advanced Search - Remain Open Option

                  The 'Advanced Search' Window should have the option for it to remain open after you select an item it found.

                  This would be useful when you are exploring your timeline - looking for a specific event, and are trying to isolate it from a number of search results.

                  Currently the window closes and you have to reopen, restart the search and find your context all over again.

                  • Show URL in the applications list

                    I'd like to see the URL in the application list. It currently only shows the title of the page, but when working on a ticketing system, it can always be the same title, but at least with the URL we can quickly search for ticket ID. It would also be nice if we could have a contextual menu (right-click) option to open the URL in the browser (like in the documents list).

                        • Fix Auto-Tag Issues

                          The auto-tag feature doesn't work flawlessly. When I'm working under 'Show only untagged activities' the auto-tags still show up with the rest of the untagged items even though they've already been tagged. This makes it seems like they haven't been tagged and would lead to re-tagging...defeating the purpose of auto-tag.

                            • Allow MT to self-diagnose and repair the screen-shot function ...

                              Screen capture keeps falling over on all my machines. If MT could confirm the last save and run the recommended repair sequence automatically (and hidden) if the screenshot was not obtained, there would be no need for the Admin to do it every few days :)

                              I'm a fan of software keeping itself alive when the manual fix is the same every time.

                              Great software btw :)!

                              • Do not create screenshot if nothing has changed

                                ManicTime should compare the new screenshot with the last one. If nothing has changed, it should not create a new file. This helps with low intervals. Of course this would work much better if the mouse pointer is not part of the screenshot.

                                  It would be cool if the URL, window title etc is added to the Exif data of a screenshot file. By that it would be possible to search for screenshots by keywords through the Windows Explorer. Attached you find an example.

                                  • OneNote plugin to track Pages instead of Sections

                                    It's really nice to have a OneNote plugin. I organise using OneNote intensively. My notes are organised in a few major sections and a lot of Pages in each section. The tracker actually takes the section name and not the page name. It would be nice if we had the option to pick either. As a workaround I can always use the App tracking to find my time on each of the Pages because the Pages are displayed in the titlebar. whoever it would be more convenient and quicker to just have them totalled automatically in the Docs section.

                                        It would nice if the unit would email (hidden) when it is sitting without an action for more than x amount of time, allowing management to see a break in activity.

                                          I use a secondary computer for a specific purpose and I'd like to have statistics on how much I used this computer during the week. However, away time and power off time are included in the statistics making the total duration values meaningless. Basically, extend the "Do not track" options to include away time and power off time.
