  1. Screenshot after switching window - optional/time delay

    I just noticed that manictime creates a screenshot every time the active window changes. this creates an unnecessary amount of images in some cases and it would be great have an option to disable for some processes or to control it with a delay (screenshot after X seconds still active..)

    • Bluebeam Revu plugin (for PDFs)

      Bluebeam is the most common PDF viewer in the construction industry (and maybe others), it would be great if a plugin could be used to extract the filepath for autotagging.

      • Jira Plugin: close dialog after work successfully saved to Jira

        Currently for the Jira plugin, when I click Save Work, a window comes up summarising the times logged. When I click Ok to close that window, then "Save tags as Work in JIRA dialog is still showing and I then have to click cancel.
        This dialog should close on success or remain open in the event of a failure.

        • Ignore 'all-day' and 'free' events on Google Calendar

          I've just configured a Google Calendar timeline, and it's showing 'All-day' events, and events I have marked as 'free'. I'd like the option to hide events based on whether they're all-day, or whether I've said 'yes', 'maybe' or 'no', along with the usual 'busy'/'free'. Ideally I'd like to have only events that are not all-day and I've either said 'yes' to or marked as busy.

            • Merge tags / autotags

              I'm finding that I have lots of near-duplicate autotags in my system. I would like to clean this up by merging similar autotags, but there's no easy way to do this. Ideal workflow would be something like:

              Select two tags.
              Click "Merge tags."
              Optionally update tag title.
              All rules from both tags now appear under the one remaining tag.

                • Better JIRA integration and tag display

                  The JIRA plugin is really great, but also very slow when there are a lot of projects and issues. And I need to wait ~1 minute to re-scan the tags every time I create a new issue.

                  Can it have an option to only scan the projects I subscribed to?

                  Also, a lot of times, the issue titles don't fit in the 'tag picker' window, so I'm not sure what I actually clicked on. Please make it resizable!

                  Similarly, the 'Add tag' window has a very strange resize behavior, where at the maximum width the 'note' section and the 'tags'…

                  • Add Ability to Specify Tag Beginning... Now.

                    Ideally I could hit a button to define what Im working on starting right then (eg Project A), and then hit the button a time later when I switch to something else (eg Project B) and so on with projects and lunch etc so that at the end of the day a complete profile would exist based on the projects I specified I was working on.

                    • Make Jira Tags from the Jira Plugin configurable

                      Currently I have autotags which can generate tags of the format:
                      JIRAKEY, #JIRAKEY-999
                      However these don't match the tags from the plugin which are
                      Jira Name, #JIRAKEY-999 Description of issue number nine nine nine

                      I would like to be able to specify how tags are formatted like so:
                      tags: {PROJECT-KEY}, #{ISSUE-KEY}
                      notes: {PROJECT-NAME}, {ISSUE-NAME}

                      In order for the save work to jira feature to work I'd need to have #{ISSUE-KEY} somewhere in tags, so perhaps a validation warning to that effect would be great.

                      • Include Autotags in Statistics

                        Right now, the Statistics reports doesn't include Autotags - you have to copy autotags to regular tags in order to get them to show in Statistics. This is counterintuitive and not user-friendly: the whole purpose of autotags is to automatically tag certain activities, and not to include them in Statistics reports means those reports are inaccurate.

                        I have ALL my activities autotagged, and then monitor a statistics report to see how much time I've actually spend working as opposed to slacking off, surfing the web, etc. If I haven't put in enough time then I can decide to stay later.…

                          I just started using manic time and I'm really enjoying it. I'd like to be able to create a stacked bar chart to give a better visual representation of my day.

                            • If you forgot to name the working file/document

                              Add the ability to rename the selected files.

                              For example, I spent the whole day working in Photoshop, but forgot to call the document (by default it is called Untitled-1).
                              I choose the right panel Untitled-1 line, click the right mouse button and click renames all Untitled-1 by desired mask.

                              It would be very convenient, I think.

                              • a flag in the timeline showing previously billed time

                                I need the ability to place a flag stating when I last billed. Another way to implement this would be to either add another tag or change the current "billable" tag to "billed."

                                    I would love it if manictime could create a timeline from commit messages in source control systems.

                                    Personally I would like SVN and Git timelines.

                                      • Change note separator on QuickBooks interface

                                        I love how MT allows me to take notes throughout a day, even as I work on different clients and projects, and each client's notes are combined into a single billable total with all the notes in QuickBooks. This is a great capability.

                                        Small request...When I work several times throughout a day for a given client, and record a separate note each time, the individual notes are passed to QuickBooks combined but automatically separated by a semicolon (;).

                                        I wonder if this feature could be configurable to suppress the semicolon, or specify a space, or a period. Personally, I prefer…

                                        • Pick tag color when creating new tag

                                          It would be nice to be able to choose a new tag's color as we create it. Assign a random color but display it to the user and allow the user to change it.
                                          Right now we have to create the tag, then go into the tag editor, find the new tag, edit it and pick the new color.
