Feature requests

I have a feature request ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Complete search functionality for tags

    The way I enter in notes to tags would allow me to do a search to find out how many tagged entries I've made based on certain keywords and properties. However, ManicTime is missing a search functionality for this. The current search only seems to allow for searching the date you are viewing on the timeline, and the Statistics tab in ManicTime does not have a keyword search function (where it would tally up and calculate everything that met the criteria).

    I would like to be able to search for certain keywords over the past 3 months to see how…

    • Capture full path name from windows explorer

      I tend to spend time in win explorer manipulating files and what not. But ManicTime doesn't capture the full path name, just the current folder.

      The folder structure for projects is generally D:\Project Number\Folder 1\Folder where I am working
      So I have to go back and manually tag it each time. I can't add to autotag, since a lot of the time the different projects will have the same folder structure names.

      • Track paths in dayview

        Filenames are listed; date and time is listed; but many filenames are generic, repeated, or simply not descriptive. Knowing where to find them will help to identify what project they relate to.

          This would be great, but sadly there is no silver bullet for this. There is no way we can get file path from open applications. All we can do is rely on APIs of the applications to get this information, but applications need to support this and we need to write this for each application separately.
          So currently it works for some apps, mostly office apps and few others which have this displayed in the window status bar.

        • Tagging by Folder (File Location)

          Would be great to Filter/Autotag based on the location of a file.
          For exampe:

          Every file which is opened and located in folder D:\Projects\P105K8

          can be filtered and tagged.

            You can already do all of this. You can write D:\Projects\P105K8 in filter in Documents timeline, then click on down arrow on the right side and Add to autotag. A normal Add to autotag also has an option to just use folder.

          • Update previous tags based on saved file name or folder name

            Please add the functionality to automatically tag email replies and the original message when we save a file in a specific Outlook folder. The tag name would be the same as the folder name.

            This same functionality could be added to automatically tag word documents based on the project folder in which they are saved.

            For instance... I will read an email in my inbox, then reply to that email. As soon as I reply to the email, I have software that automatically moves the original email and the reply to a specific folder in Outlook. I want Manic Time…

            • Divide time that is tagged with multiple tags

              Imagine today I worked 14 hours on something that benefits client A and client B. I tagged this time with both tags, "Client A" and "Client B".

              Currently ManicTime's timesheet tells me I have worked 28 hours today, which is oviously not true.

              I would like to show the time as 7 hours for tag "Client A" and 7 hours for tag "Client B".

              • Nagging window to remind me of tagging

                I need a pop-up window that remindes me every X (~15) min to tag.
                And ask me
                "Are you still doing <lastTag>?"
                [YES] [No] -> select other tag

                Like the "Away" window, less intrusive but still as persistent.

                During daily business, I tend to forget tagging
