  1. I'd like to have a Linux-Version of ManicTime

    <quote from Last Years Request Page: http://bit.ly/1J2m4Ns>
    As often requested in the old Forum, there are quite a few People that like to see a Linux-Version of ManicTime. Main-Focus may be Ubuntu for greatest audience.
    I'm a Software-Developer and currently ManicTime is the only reason I don't switch to Linux as Develoment Enviroment. Since I know ManicTime, I can't imagine to work without it ;(
    At best, you can modify the Windows-Version to run on Mono (Open Source .NET-runtime environment). This may work with very little effort.
    Greatest challenge would be to read address-bar of browsers on the different…

      Linux version (still tracker only) now works on Ubuntu, Mint, CentOS, RedHat, Debian and Arch Linux.

      ManicTime Server also works on Linux, so while still not ideal, you can run ManicTime Server (for UI) and Linux tracker both on Linux.

    • ManicTime for Mac OS

      As a big supporter of Manictime I have now started to work with Apple computers.
      ManicTime for mac is extremely desirable as there are several consultants that I know of that wishes a similar tool for Mac.

        • Ability to add autotag timeline to statistics

          There is need to add autotag timeline to statistics, because most of activity is recorded automatically (at least in my case).

          • iphone App

            App for logging time off the computer like meetings, webex, conferences, calls. All this should be as easy as using ManicTime on the desktop and also add this time to the computer app automatically.

            • Rule editing

              It is needed to be able to edit rules for autotags. Currently it is possible only by removing rules and adding them again, or adding new and leaving old.

              • Enable auto-tag of Outlook emails based on text in From, To/CC/BCC, Subject, Body, Folder Name, Category

                Enhance auto-tagging for Outlook emails. Allow rules that search for a string (or RegEx) in any of the following fields: From, To, CC, BCC, Subject, Body, Categories, and Folder. Also, store the item IDs for Outlook items, and then allow the user to re-run the auto-tag rules so that the rule could find and use each items current folder and categories.

                • Desktop Widget

                  The one thing that keeps me from benefiting from using manictime as thoroughly as I could is the stopwatch feature. I don't always get popups reminding me to change. I'd like something similar to Toggl desktop widget where I could easily view what I'm being tracked automatically as doing (autotagged etc), as well as the current manual "stopwatch" tag I've set.

                    • Secondary tag timeline

                      i would like to see an option to add a second tag timeline to the main screen. when adding a tag by selecting a timeframe, there should be an option in the menu "add [secondary tag customized label]" below "add tag" option. potential use cases are:
                      * tracking your mood separately from activities
                      * keeping a sepcific project on a separate timeline
                      * tracking your location (using tags such as "home", "work", "bus") independently of activities
                      * tracking your company (alone / co-workers / with partner, what have you)
                      ... and countless others.

                      this would make manictime more customizable.

                          • Regularly reminds you to take short breaks for your eyes.

                            It would be great if ManicTime implemented a regularly reminds for eyes.

                            When you are working at a computer it is easy to forget about time. This leads to eye strain and other physical problems.

                            Screen dims and blocking long breaks every hour (displays the timer showing how much time is left before the end of the break and skip button).
                            Before the beginning of a long break in center of the screen displays a notice - "if you want to start a break? - start / take me 3 minutes/ skip". In "strict mode" such notice does not appear,…

                            • Custom Keyboard Shortcuts for Assigning Tags

                              The new 0-9 (or Ctrl-0 through Ctrl-9) tag shortcuts are great, but being able to arbitrarily assign any key as a tag shortcut would be even better: 'L' for Lunch, 'P' for Project 1, 'S' for Daily Stand-up Meeting.

                              Tag shortcuts are already the most efficient way to tag time. With easier to remember custom mnemonics, this powerful feature would also become one of the most accessible.

                                In addition to the existing export functions i'd like to export the auto-tag timeline to csv.

                                Another nice feature would be an export of all timelines summarized.

                                • Merge multiple tagged times together

                                  It would be nice if I could merge multiple selected times with same tag (with all the notes concatenated together)

                                  Maybe triggered by an right-click option after selecting a time frame

                                  Or an option to use the concatenated notes while adding a new tag over a timeframe that contains already tagged time

                                  So it would be possible to constantly add short notes everytime during the work, and later tag the whole time, joining the already taken notes together

                                      • Integration with Slack

                                        Would like to be able to see what channel I am posting to in Slack application. Right now it just says "Slack" so you don't really know what project that was for.

                                        • tag shortcuts should work also inside tag window

                                          It would be nice if configured tag shortcuts would also work in an opened tag windows (so shortcut could be used to tag a time in the automatic popup after returning from a break)
