  1. Merge multiple tagged times together

    It would be nice if I could merge multiple selected times with same tag (with all the notes concatenated together)

    Maybe triggered by an right-click option after selecting a time frame

    Or an option to use the concatenated notes while adding a new tag over a timeframe that contains already tagged time

    So it would be possible to constantly add short notes everytime during the work, and later tag the whole time, joining the already taken notes together

    • Export timelines (Auto-Tags) to CSV / Excel

      In addition to the existing export functions i'd like to export the auto-tag timeline to csv.

      Another nice feature would be an export of all timelines summarized.

      • Enhancing Tracking schedule: Capture activity if user is active even though outside scheduled timeframe.

        Enhancing Tracking schedule: Capture activity if user is active even though outside scheduled timeframe.

        This is useful because the user can then track their "normal" daily usage and be prompted when they are away but still capture their "extra" usage which is outside the normal working hours.

        An example would be when a crisis occurs.

        Normal I work from 9am to 5pm. I want to be prompted when there are time gaps in my day so I have set up a tracking schedule for 9am to 5pm. THIS WORKS PERFECTLY!

        However, an emergency has occurred and I am now working…

        • combine timelines from more than one computer for single user

          I use a desktop in the office and a laptop when I'm not. I'd like to have the desktop automatically add the laptop timelines, or at least the tags.

          • Draggable Timeline (middle/right mouse drag)

            I find it slightly cumbersome to navigate the timelines within a day.
            I know there are currently two ways to do this:
            1. Dragging the window in the fixed line below the timelines
            2. Crtl+Mousewheel

            Both are not perfect for me - dragging the timelines (not the orange bar) button would be great.
            This could either be triggered by a middle or a right mouse drag, or with SPACE+Left mouse drag (I think Photoshop uses this combination) - but I like the first two better, because the require less action.

            • Document Timeline for Nitro PDF

              We use nitro PDF instead of adobe. The applications timeline includes all the file detail but the files I open/read/markup don't appear in my document timeline.

                  • a flag in the timeline showing previously billed time

                    I need the ability to place a flag stating when I last billed. Another way to implement this would be to either add another tag or change the current "billable" tag to "billed."

                    • Ctrl Z should do Undo

                      I thought there was no Undo function in ManicTime because Ctrl Z does nothing. I just realised there's an Undo button in the top right corner. Please associate the Ctrl Z shortcut to this undo function. It's the universal keyboard shortcut for Undo

                      • Arc for iOS location tracking support now that the Moves App has reached EOL status

                        I was disappointed to learn today that Facebook is discontinuing the Moves App, as I've relied a lot on it to log my on-site service visits. I've found what I consider is a suitable substitute, the Arc App for iOS. I would really like to see support for this.

                        • Configurable "Edit" Tag Entry dialog (notes, start, end)

                          Configurable "Edit" Tag Entry dialog (notes, start, end)

                          When editing tagged time to modify the notes or adjust start/end times...

                          A) The ability to configure and pin the items appearing on the right.
                          Configure: For example, add a custom option for, say, "1 hour" to modify the active field (start, end, duration) by the 1 hour. Start time is active: resets end time to 1 hour later. End time active: resets start time 1 hour earlier.

                          Pin: when "Tags" text box is selected, I could "pin" various MRU tags instead of them floating down the list based on last used.

                          • Clicking an entry on the Timesheet will navigate you to that entry on the Day timeline.

                            On the TimeSheet when total by 'Day' is selected, I would like to be able to click on a time entry in the timesheet tab and have the application navigate to the first entry on the timeline of the Day tab.

                            When I performed this action, ideally the timeline would grey or filter out all other tags and only display the tag I am investigating.

                            When I identify an entry in the timeline that needs adjusted it is necessary for me to make a note of that day, the tag of the time entry and use the date control on…

                              Add a timeline for Thunderbird Lightning calendars similar as is currently possible with Outlook. The events should be stored in a sqlite database (local.sqlite) so they should be rather easy to extract.

                                • Change note separator on QuickBooks interface

                                  I love how MT allows me to take notes throughout a day, even as I work on different clients and projects, and each client's notes are combined into a single billable total with all the notes in QuickBooks. This is a great capability.

                                  Small request...When I work several times throughout a day for a given client, and record a separate note each time, the individual notes are passed to QuickBooks combined but automatically separated by a semicolon (;).

                                  I wonder if this feature could be configurable to suppress the semicolon, or specify a space, or a period. Personally, I prefer…

                                  • Better JIRA integration and tag display

                                    The JIRA plugin is really great, but also very slow when there are a lot of projects and issues. And I need to wait ~1 minute to re-scan the tags every time I create a new issue.

                                    Can it have an option to only scan the projects I subscribed to?

                                    Also, a lot of times, the issue titles don't fit in the 'tag picker' window, so I'm not sure what I actually clicked on. Please make it resizable!

                                    Similarly, the 'Add tag' window has a very strange resize behavior, where at the maximum width the 'note' section and the 'tags'…

                                    • Modern Auth support (OAuth) for Office 365 Email/Skype/Teams etc

                                      Multifactor auth enforces modern authentication (OAuth) with Azure AD for Office 365. This means the skype and outlook plugins no longer operate.

                                        • Track Google Drive and OneDrive folder path too - Document Timeline

                                          I use AutoTagging on used file folders on my hard drive. However, from files opened on my synchronized Google Drive and OneDrive etc. the folder isn't tracked. It only shows the file name on the documents timeline.
