        • Timer or notification every X minutes to tag last untagged time

          I'd like to receive notification every X minutes prompting me to tag. Currently I can use Tag untagged time, but I need to trigger it manually.

          • CSV-Export from Command Line

            I'd like to kick off the CSV-Export from the command line. Basically, what i'm looking for is something that i can automate somewhat like this:

            > ManicTime.exe --export="Tags" > mt_tags.csv
            > ManicTime.exe --export="Applications" > mt_apps.csv

            and so on. It does not need to be _exactly_ like that, but if I could
            put this in a batch file, it would remove an error source from my
            current workflow.

            If the export could be limited to a certain date-range (like the existing GUI export), export date-format (unix vs. windows time format) and export delimiter (commas vs. tabs) that would be the icing…

                • Worktime settings per user per day

                  It would be great if you could set the worktime settings per user, per day. If there are multiple employees with parttime jobs, their required attendance can differ from day to day.

                  • Pomodoro technique

                    It would be great if ManicTime implemented a way of working easily with the Pomodoro Technique[1]. It could be a very simple implementation:

                    * A pomodoro checkbox in the stopwatch
                    * A way of setting intervals aka "pomodoros" (e.g., the classic 25 minutes work + 5 minutes break)
                    * A way of setting how many intervals before prompting for a longer break
                    * When an a break or interval is reached, the tags dialog pops up asking you to tag your time (e.g., whether you've just been working, or breaking)

                    ManicTime already does so much of what's required for a…

                    • Screenshot plugin enhancements

                      F12-Screenshots need to be bigger, full screen view would be great. Show all screenshots filtered by application would be great. Play back screenshot timeline with left/right arrow keys would be great.

                      • Differentiate between javaw.exe processes

                        Hi,

                        A lot of applications are using the JVM these days. It would be great if ManicTime could differentiate between different javaw.exe processes. Currently it clumps them all up to the same program, but they even are different processes. Only the program file name (javaw.exe) is the same. SS: http://i.imgur.com/D0UZoCJ.png

                        Here is a pointer on how to differentiate the processes in windows - http://stackoverflow.com/questions/13288787/get-command-line-of-a-java-process , I do not know .NET though and there might be better ways.

                        Great tool, thanks a bunch! Am using free, but am planning to buy premium if this works!

                            I often forget to turn recording back on. This feature would make it come back on after a selectable number of minutes. Kind of like Rescuetime comes back on after 15 minutes

                              Automatic screenshot journal is still the missing key in ManicTime for me. You should buy TimeSnapper (www.timesnapper.com) and integrate it in ManicTime to make it perfect! ;)

                              • Reports including start and end times

                                ManicTime is the only automatic time tracking program that meets all of my needs, except one. As a Behavior Analyst, I bill Medicaid and other government funded services, which require that I show the start and end times of my service on a spreadsheet. What I have to do is go back and transfer my times into a spreadsheet. ManicTime makes this easier than other services but this still takes time to do so for each client.

                                I know, given that most time tracking programs don't offer this option, most users only need total hours. Still, I am adding it…

                                • Include tag timeline to overtime/worktime statistic or give the administrator the premission to change user status timeline.

                                  Sometimes people work outside the office for half day and their overtime statistic is wrong.

                                  Somehow the overtime statistic should also look at the tags timeline and the user status timeline to show worktime/overtime.

                                  Or the Administrator should get the premission to change the user status timeline.

                                  • "Moves app" timeline should have a link to google maps

                                    The "moves app" timeline really should have an option to open in Google Maps when right-clicking on a location. Right now I have to do a bunch of copying and pasting and trimming to do this.

                                    • I am a single practitioner and have multiple clients as do many. The problem for me is that when it comes to Billing Invoices I have not fou

                                      As a single practitioner with multiple clients I would like to be able to create a time chart for individual clients which I could attach to my Invoice to show them the time accrued to them. Is there any way that I can create separate Invoices over a month or more time for individual clients ?

                                      • Disable saveing thumbnails of screenshots

                                        At me, thumbnails need about 40-50 percent of diskspace.
                                        So it should be possible to disable generation of thumbnails.

                                        And MaincTime should ignore missing thumbnails (*_thumbnail.jpg)
                                        If I delete thumbnails manualy, many exceptions in errors.log generated

                                        2017-06-23 01:48:19.751 E 2624 9 35543166 Exception {"errorType":"System.IO.FileNotFoundException","message":"Die Datei \"C:\\Users\\my_username\\AppData\\Local\\Finkit\\ManicTime\\Screenshots\\2016-11-11\\2016-11-11_00-13-03_thumbnail.jpg\" konnte nicht gefunden werden.","stackTrace":" bei System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath)\r\n bei System.IO.FileInfo.get_Length()\r\n bei Finkit.ManicTime.Common.Plugins.Timelines.Screenshots.CaptureFile.GetFileSize(String filePath)","data":{}}

                                        And ManicTime Tracker needs alot of cpu load.

                                        • Manic time Skype call plugin for skype preview app

                                          The new Skype app for windows 10 is nice. but am forced to use the old desktop version as the skype calls plugin works only with the desktop version. It would be great if the plugin works for the new app too
