  1. Focus password window when launching from tray

    I think it used to do this correctly, but I've noticed in recent versions, when you click the tray icon to launch ManicTime and you have it secured with a password, the password box does not focus when it appears, so you have to click on the box to type the password. I swear you used to be able to click the tray icon and then type your password because the password box had focus. It's a small thing, but a quirky thing...

        We need the ability to switch off screenshots at the creation of the deployment file if the user is not allowed to change settings.

        • 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.

            • Ability to delete Screenshots through the timeline option menu

              Could you also add the option to delete the Screenshots through the context menu?

              You already let me highlight a segment of time and then right click to delete: Tags, Computer Usage, Applications, Documents, and ALL. I know I can go to the folder where the screenshots are saved but that is quite time consuming.

              Why do I want this? I often work on sensitive information but still want ManicTime to track my time on different projects. Screen capture is incredibly helpful for auditing my day but some of the data throughout the day needs to be protected. I'd like…

              • 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.

                • Automatic Screenshot Journal

                  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! ;)

                        • Improve display of errors posting to Jira

                          I love the fact that now each entry posted to jira has it's own row and it's own result.

                          However if one of the entries lower down the list has an error you may not notice.

                          I would like to see something eye-catching at the top of the list to say something like 1 of 23 entries failed to update.

                            Manic Time Tags should be able to be linked to Freshbooks (Project-Task) through an add in. Then as soon as time was tagged it would be invoiceable, and the details would always match. Many other time tracking apps have it.

                            • 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…

                                  I'd like to display the times in decimal on the timesheet view.
                                  Because: when transcribing into workflowmax I could use the number pad for data-entry instead of having to reach for the colon key.

                                    Hello I was wondering would it be possible to export to a file that looks like the the tag section on the main page. I have attached a photo to show which section I am talking about. I have tried the time sheet export but I would like to export the duration and start and end times. Thank you for any help you can provide.

                                        I use the above mentioned feature of the stopwatch every time, and I set it to remind me every 5 minutes. It would be useful if ManicTime remembered the state of the checkbox and how many minutes specified, then defaulted to that instead of 30 minutes.
