  1. Manual overwrite

    Allow a designated tag to overwrite another tag. Suppose you've tagged Task A from 10:00 to 10:15. Then you look and you see that you took a phone call - Task B - from 10:05 to 10:10. If you just tag Task B from 10:05 to 10:10, you'll have that portion double-tagged. But I'd like to manually overwrite so that Task A is broken into two segments (10:00 to 10:05 and 10:10 to 10:15, totaling 10 mins) and Task B overwrites the time for 10:05 to 10:10, totaling 5 minutes.

    • Syncing timeline/s

      I use several computers. It would be great if manictime synced so that I only need to check one manictime timeline.

      • periodic poll what your working on

        I like the reminder to check what I'm working on. However I find it to be to open. Can ManicTime require a reponse? That way I activaly have to say what I'm working on.

        I would like to extend the request and also ask other questions; like whom I have consulted for the thing I'm working on, is it planned work or ad-hoc, is it my main work of a supporting task that I'm working on.
        I don't want a long survey, just small questions and hence at a different time interval

        • 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.

          • Jira Plugin: close dialog after work successfully saved to Jira

            Currently for the Jira plugin, when I click Save Work, a window comes up summarising the times logged. When I click Ok to close that window, then "Save tags as Work in JIRA dialog is still showing and I then have to click cancel.
            This dialog should close on success or remain open in the event of a failure.

            • Bluebeam Revu plugin (for PDFs)

              Bluebeam is the most common PDF viewer in the construction industry (and maybe others), it would be great if a plugin could be used to extract the filepath for autotagging.

              • Persist time selection across category

                When a user clicks between Computer Usage, Applications or Documents the time (item row they selected) is reset to the start of the day. (aka the start of the list) In my opinion it should start at the same selected (if there is a time in that category) OR the closest available. Sometimes I click between the few to get an idea of what I was doing that day to get a full picture.

                • Allow a statistic to contain values from multiple timelines

                  I would like to be able to combine values from multiple *timelines* into a single statistic so that they appear in a single combined bar in the chart.

                  Example:

                  Active Time + Label: Sales Meeting

                  I don't want to have to manually label all of my active time, but I do want to be able to see how much time I spend "working", which for me would be (all active time + specific labels).

                  • Add Timesheet Date Option: "All to date"

                    Similar to "Month to date", etc. I would like an option to view all timesheet data which is stored, even going back previous years.

                    I can set this date manually (with some trial and error I can find the "start" date), but if I save the report with the date range, it will save today as the end date, so I'd always have to remember to update the end date when re-running the report, then re-saving.

                    • More Automation

                      I would like automatic tagging to be able to assign a tag with client name, based on duration email is open or being drafted based on matching email address to list of client names and addresses. I would like the tag to include the activity "email" and a description "the subject line of the email". Similarly for documents worked on in an application I would like a tag based on folder name where document is stored matched to a list of client names and folder names; with the name of the document in the description spot and the application name…

                      • Minimum Activity Duration - UPDATE/FIX

                        Currently the minimum activity duration does not work as a user would expect it.

                        Example:

                        I set it to 60 seconds.

                        I have Chrome open for 5 minutes, this all works good.
                        I then have outlook open for 40 seconds
                        I then have calculator open for 30 seconds.
                        It will list that I have had calculator open for 70 seconds total when it fact that is incorrect.

                        My suggestion would be to keep it as the main application Google Chrome until I have had another application open for more than my specified time eg I have calculator open for more…

                        • Costs too much for individual personal license

                          I can't pay $60 or $70 for a single user license. I want to use it for personal use, at work, not as a contractor, to track how I spent my time so I can enter my time in JIRA more accurately (since I have little sense of time at the end of the day). I sure would like a coupon code or a middle pricing tier.

                          • Brave Browser

                            I just switched to using the Brave Browser because Google Chrome is a resource hog. Brave doesn't show any screenshots in the Professional version of ManicTime.

                                    • Jira Tags - Limit tags available to issues configured, pinned, and used with last # of days

                                      I am currently using the Jira plugin and it works well with the configuration . However one little point that is annoying is that the history of used tags has grown to be years long. This includes the same tag but with notes. This is great for the same day, same week, maybe even month, but beyond that it becomes unwieldy as the newest, most current, unused tags are placed at the bottom of the tag list. If the tags could be the issues that match the Jira tag configs, plus any pinned tag, and then the history of tags…

                                      • allow single tag to span midnight

                                        Adding tags crossing midnight splits them into two instances of tagged time. I'd like to be able to easily estimate contiguous time spanning the day boundary, but it requires tagging twice and performing arithmetic.
