  1. Record screen video when an application runs

    Create video recordings for certain applications. For me, I want to record all of my Skype calls automatically (audio and video). Currently I do this manually with SnagIt, but sometimes i forget.

    • Improvement of Help

      It would be great to find all features of ManicTime in the help ages/knowledgebase. Today I searched for the description of "Pomodoro" amd "Timer". I entered it in the "Search"-field but
      I found no reasonable description of the functionality among the proposed pages. It wasn't until I did a search in the Internet browser that I was shown a page listing new features for an older version of the program. There the functionality was described. Can't you extend your help pages directly with such things?

      • 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…

          • Please add auto tag feature to mac server

            My time is always used in bits and pieces, which makes it hard to be tagged. But I use some specific applications quite often, and it's easier to tag by applications for me. I really like the auto tag idea, but servers on macOS seem to exclude that feature. Is it possible to add it to the mac server? Thanks!

            • Thunderbird Lightning timeline similar to Outlook

              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.

              • Files paths for Revit Models

                I'd expect Revit would be similar to AutoCAD to program in, and would be very helpful to people in the building design industry.

                • 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.

                  • teams

                    Would be great if it can have a plugin for Microsoft Teams - as this is now the replacement for Skype for Business etc.

                      • Ability to mark more than one tag at a time as billable

                        Currently each tag must be marked individually and then set as billable. However, the UI does allow you to select more than one tag at a time. When I select multiple tags and use "set billable" would like all tags to be marked as billable.

                        • 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

                          • 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'…

                            • Scheduled Backups should be enabled by default

                              ManicTime has a feature for scheduled backups, however these are not enabled by default. I started using manic time about a month ago... I just had my C drive crash and lost my whole database, if the backups had been enabled by default i would have been able to restore since my documents are synchronized

                              • Auto-clear filter when lower-left-window is cleared (all items tagged)

                                In the Day view, if I filter by an application (double-click in the lower-right window).
                                Then in the lower-left window I clear all the issues by assigning them to tags, I want the filter to clear automatically and go back to the full application view again. You could make this an option if someone didn't want it to happen.
                                I must waste several minutes per day either going down to the filter box and clearing, or clicking to another timeline and back again to clear it. I can't see any reason why I'd want the filter to remain especially if…

                                • Show which type of data will be deleted in confirm screen

                                  Currently when you highlight a timespan in the timeline you get the option to delete a number of things: tags, applications, screenshots, _everything_, etc. Once you clicked you get a confirmation dialog with title "Delete" and text "Are you sure?".

                                  It would be better if the type of data you're deleting is shown once more in the title of this dialog.

                                  (It's mostly "screenshots" and "delete all" which scare me because they're next to each other in the menu, and I'm not sure the "Undo" function restores screenshots once deleted.)

                                  • Auto Tag details

                                    I'd like to see the details of what makes up my auto tags. I have one called Development that consists of various software I use when developing apps. It would be great if I could filter by that Auto Tag, but still see the data for the individual apps that make up that Auto Tag.
                                    Thanks

                                        • 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…
