  1. Tag overrides other descriptions?

    Is there any way to see, when you are inside a tag, which aplication/document it refers to?

    I have taken for example this violet tag but and there are many aplications/documents I move to this tag but I cannot identify them here.

    Thank you

    • in the add tags window, show tags hierarchy and last used tags in separate tabs in the same window

      When tagging, the "Add tags" window always shows the list of last used tags, and a button to access the hierarchical view in yet another window.
      I always use the tags hierarchy. It would be much more convenient if, for instance, the list of last used tags and the hierarchy were under different tabs on the right side of the window, and the last tab used was memorized from one call to the next.

      • add file path to file reports & group by tag(s)

        First... I LOVE YOUR PROGRAM! Thanks. :)

        Here's something that would make it even cooler...

        I would like to be able to analyze sub-tasks related to the individual fils I'm working on. Files often have the same naming structure so the reports don't show which project it was part of. If files are grouped and reported with the path or could be grouped by the tags I could analyze which files were being worked on for how long on a project. This would be too difficult to tag manually because I may be working between many files for short periods…

        • Split

          Split Function for Tag
          During the day I sometimes forget to stop a timer when an interruption comes. Rather than having to then re-adjust the time manually by dragging the task creating a new task and adding the new tag it would be nice if I could put a split in a tag which then seperates that tag into two seperate tags. From there I can just drag the second tag start time to where I got back to my original task and add the new Tag for the interruption.

          • Cell phone app to capture cell phone usage as activity

            I depend heavily on ManicTime for capturing billable time but for phone calls I often end up missing some billable hours.

            I'm very fond of both products/companies so integration between ManicTime and a mobile operator like Ting might be a nice marketing boost to both companies. Further, Ting already has Android and IPhone apps you could piggy-back on. I've sent this suggestion to them as well with a pointer to ManicTime web site.

            Such an app could be as simple as a prompt for the call's purpose after calls. A phone number catch/ignore list would minimize annoyance factor. Input via…

              • Make Skype Calls Timeline work again

                Skype calls timeline doesn't currently work. It says "Skype database schema is not valid" when you try to add the skype timeline.

                It would be great if Manictime could be updated to work with the new skype database structure.

                • Stop manictime from deleting past screenshots if settings change accidentally

                  At the moment, the default settings for screenshots is "keep for 3 days". Sometimes, an installation/update can revert the settings to the default, which will automatically delete all screenshots older than 3 days. For me, it deleted over a year's worth of screenshot data as a result of an update. Fortunatelly, not all was lost as I had a backup of some of the data.

                  The system should include a test that if it needs to delete an unexpectedly large number of screenshots, it warns you in advance. The prompt could be something like "Manictime will delete X as a…

                      • First time use is a bit daunting. So much information - it is like a three ring circus. A "user guide" would be welcome.

                        I hope that my Settings - tracking options will de-clutter the time line and allow me to learn the program. A good guide would be to set the program to only tracking 1 thing, for example Word. The capacity of this program will be needed by Microsoft Office users now that the Journal has been reduced in functionality.

                            Document support on MacOs
                            It seems the tracker only takes websites into account on the MacOs tracker. I use Word, Sublime Text, Adobe CC, none of the files they open seems to appear in the Document Timeline. That makes it near impossible to have AutoTags

                              • Stealth Mode

                                Would like a method of installation that is completely invisible, non-stoppable by the end user of the computer. For them to review their timeline, etc., they could use the browser interface at the server via HTTPS. Preferably, the entire desktop piece would run in an unstoppable Windows Service.

                                  • xero integration

                                    I use Xero.com for my invoicing... currently I use Temponia to capture my timesheets and create preliminary invoices which are then posted to Xero.com. I almost always refer back to ManicTime to figure out what I was doing and then manually capture into Temponia.

                                    I was wondering if there could be ManicTime direct integration with Xero, or if not, then integration with Temponia?

                                      • Screenshot support for the linux client

                                        It seems the linux client does not take screenshots now.
                                        It would be great if it would take screnshots!

                                        • Disable website tracking for Mac users

                                          Our main goal is to track time that's tagged to specific projects and not overall productivity. Therefore we feel like if a user feels we are tracking their website usage then it may erode trust in management.

                                          With the PC version you can disable or white/black list web tracking.

                                          However this is not possible with the Mac version. It'd be a great addition.
