    • 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…

      • Files paths for Revit Models

        I'd expect Revit would be similar to AutoCAD to program in, and would be very helpful to people in the building design industry.

        • Record screen video when an application runs

          Create video recordings for certain applications. For me, I want to record all of my Skype calls automatically (audio and video). Currently I do this manually with SnagIt, but sometimes i forget.

          • Timesheet Basic Advanced UI

            I often toggle the filters on and off change the group by.
            Having these on different tabs makes this task lots of extra clicks.

            • Show domain instead of page when web browsing

              As an example, my activity log has 25 lines of 5-10 seconds each duration from my looking through the ManicTime help just now. Each new page I looked at created a new line. It would be far more useful data if it could combine those into a domain listing. As another example, all the time I spent on NYtimes.com would show on one line, rather than a different line for each article. I know I can switch it to combine all my MS Edge time, but that is too high level. Thanks for considering the idea.

              • Ability to report outdated documentation

                I'd like to see this feature on your support website. The documentation is outdated on some pages and tells me to go to places that don't exist or show screenshots from older versions of the application which have changed.
                for example http://support.manictime.com/knowledgebase/articles/686349-advanced-search
                It would be nice if on the support article we could report outdated information so that it could be updated.

                • More rounding options (5m, 10m) and hide seconds when rounding

                  Would be nice to have more options in the "Round to" drop list (like 5m & 10m).

                  When rounding is enabled, the seconds could be hidden from the generated report since they are always ':00'.

                  • Vertical Timeline for Side of Screen

                    I think it would be really cool if the timeline could be represented vertically. This way, I could keep the MT window up on my screen at all times as a thin window on the sides. Think something along the lines using Windows Snap to split your screen, then making the ManicTime window very narrow. See screenshot. Like that, only timelines are vetical. Yeah. =)

                    • You could expand your market if you could obtain the US Gov't time keeping certification.

                      I work for a firm that has to keep time in accordance with US Government contractor rules. I've been told that after much research (recently double checked) that we can only use Oracle's time keeping app. There is apparently only one front end that is certified to work with that tool. I am searching for that name of it.

                      This would be a huge opportunity for your firm to compete with (then sell out to) Oracle.

                      • More Automation

                        I would like automatic tagging to be able to assign a tag with client name, based on duration email is open or being drafted based on matching email address to list of client names and addresses. I would like the tag to include the activity "email" and a description "the subject line of the email". Similarly for documents worked on in an application I would like a tag based on folder name where document is stored matched to a list of client names and folder names; with the name of the document in the description spot and the application name…

                        • Costs too much for individual personal license

                          I can't pay $60 or $70 for a single user license. I want to use it for personal use, at work, not as a contractor, to track how I spent my time so I can enter my time in JIRA more accurately (since I have little sense of time at the end of the day). I sure would like a coupon code or a middle pricing tier.

                          • Manual overwrite

                            Allow a designated tag to overwrite another tag. Suppose you've tagged Task A from 10:00 to 10:15. Then you look and you see that you took a phone call - Task B - from 10:05 to 10:10. If you just tag Task B from 10:05 to 10:10, you'll have that portion double-tagged. But I'd like to manually overwrite so that Task A is broken into two segments (10:00 to 10:05 and 10:10 to 10:15, totaling 10 mins) and Task B overwrites the time for 10:05 to 10:10, totaling 5 minutes.

                                  We can define some working days as a work free. But there is no way to define weekend day as a working day. The way could be the same as work free days definition.

                                    I'd like a column that shows a list of tags not used in the grouped-by clause. (in my case I group by first level tags, so I want to show second level tags and below)

                                    • Default to PM when entering 12

                                      Very small change. When entering a start or end time in the Edit popup, can it default to PM when entering 12 as this causes great pain when getting it wrong as it wipes out other tags.
                                      Thanks
                                      Caleb

                                      • "Show only tagged activites" for autotags

                                        That would be nice. I'm a lazy developer, so I'd like to set tags for certain activities just once. If I can't see what I already (auto)tagged, I don;t know what I missed.

                                        So basically the "Show only tagged activites", but for autotags

                                        • Add (back) "Last Used" Date/Time to Recent Tags/Notes Lists

                                          In previous versions, I seem to remember in at least one, if not all, of the various tag dialogs and menus showing recent tags (e.g., "What will you work on", "Add tag", "Welcome back! Would you like to tag your away time?", etc.), it would show when we last used each listed tag combination or note (if cursor in the Notes input box). Could you add that back?

                                          (I find it particularly useful for notes because I can't always tell, with my cursor in the Notes input, which notes were previously used with the selected tag combination, and which are…
