  1. 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".

      • Analyze Command Frequency in Applications

        I use AutoCad extensively and would like to know what commands are used most frequently so that I could optimize my shortcuts. Let me know if you have questions!

          • Allow editing or relabeling a tracked activity

            I wanted to change an Away session as Active. I couldn't find any way to change it, only delete it.

            The software would be even more flexible if one could insert/replace session data.

            • Add auto-tag based on "root" url/document/application. Ex. Tag every page resulting from news.google.com as "NotWork"

              The title is pretty self-explanatory. But to elaborate; I am to the point where I have a ton of auto-tags for random urls when in reality most of them are a result of me browsing from another known source...like news.google.com, reddit.com, etc. So, it would really clean things up and allow for more flexible tagging if I could setup auto-tags to use the previous domain/document as filter criteria.

              It would ideally work similarly to the "Stalker Option" in the StayFocusd chrome extension. With that option, I only have to add a few "root" urls like reddit, google news, facebook, etc.…

                I don’t think this is doable. We would not only have to track current url, but somehow track the previous url.
                Just blindly saying that the url before this one is previous would be wrong if for example you just switched tabs. Every time you would switch tabs, we would think that the url in first tab is previous url of the second tab.

              • 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…

                • 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…

                  • 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

                      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.

                      • Magnifying Cursor

                        While it is relatively easy to 'zoom in' on the timeline to see individual slices, I'd like to have a 'magnifying cursor' UI element, which magnifies the timeline area locally around the cursor to ease selecting a slice, without having to zoom & drag the whole timeline.

                        • 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.

                              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.

                                A "Google Maps Timeline" plugin would be very practical. So I do not only see what I have done on my laptop, I also know where I was at that time. Also when I have no other timeline (Laptop is off) I can see later that I was travelling. This gives me a better idea what I have done the whole day.

                                • Make time slices less than 1 pixel show as one pixel so they don't disappear (where practical)

                                  Sometimes time slices disappear on the timeline because they are too narrow.

                                  I'd like to be able to see them :-)
