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".

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.

  3. Grouping of Autotags in Manictime

    It will be better if you can add this feature to segment autotags like (category 1, category 2) and under each category there will be several independent autotags. Currently i have 20 autotags and want to group them into 3 category but that is not possible. These are some suggestion how to implement this.

    1) In Timesheet: It can be added in timesheet generation and giving an option to group autoatags and it will show total time spent under each category.

    2) In Timeline: It can also be displayed in autotag timeline and user will have option whether to show…

  4. allow to check specific items in advanced search

    please allow to check specific items in advanced search so I could use the calculator to calculate just those items and not all that comes up in the list.

  5. Cell phone app to capture cell phone usage as activity

    I depend heavily on ManicTime for capturing billable time but for phone calls I often end up missing some billable hours.

    I'm very fond of both products/companies so integration between ManicTime and a mobile operator like Ting might be a nice marketing boost to both companies. Further, Ting already has Android and IPhone apps you could piggy-back on. I've sent this suggestion to them as well with a pointer to ManicTime web site.

    Such an app could be as simple as a prompt for the call's purpose after calls. A phone number catch/ignore list would minimize annoyance factor. Input via…

  6. Jira Tags - Merge the description of the jira tag with the auto-tag

    Allow tags that match the jira format to automatically link in the relevent Jira description of the issue for easier understanding of the feature that was worked on.

    When hovering over/viewing #PROJ-123
    it would show #PROJ-123 Implement that cool new feature

    1. shrink height or dissapear if necessary
    2. auto-hide if empty
    3. priority - always show
    Also, font should adjust if resized.

  9. GotoMeeting Add in

    I really like the Lync/Skype for Business add-in. I would like to see one for GoToMeeting as well. Manic time used to record the GTM as screenshots, but it no longer does.

  11. First time use is a bit daunting. So much information - it is like a three ring circus. A "user guide" would be welcome.

    I hope that my Settings - tracking options will de-clutter the time line and allow me to learn the program. A good guide would be to set the program to only tracking 1 thing, for example Word. The capacity of this program will be needed by Microsoft Office users now that the Journal has been reduced in functionality.

  12. Add labels quicker

    It would be nice to add labels quicker. If the labels is in the right click context menu it works fine but if not you need 3-4 clicks.

    How about you build a quick search. If I select a time frame in the top and start tipping there could be a quick search / autocomplete. You would click one time, type the label name and press enter. Done!

    That little thing would make your tool 10 times better.

    Greetings
    Philipp

  13. Search function in the "add tag" dialog box

    I need the search function in the "add tag" dialog box. Here I should be able to search for tags and notes. This will be a great help in selecting and using already existing and used tags and notes. An always visible search box in the upper left area of the dialog boxx would be great. The search function should start searching while text / words are still entered.

  16. timeline connector for SQL query

    I understand there is a feature to construct a custom timeline by accessing some kind of XML data, but it would seem to be useful to be able to extract timelines from remote dbs via normal SQL.

    (this could potentially be implemented on both the Desktop client and Server)

    (this is a request I made in the old forums, just replicating it here for visibility:
    http://forum.manictime.com/yaf_postst163_timeline-connector-for-SQL-query.aspx#post576)

  17. Integrate with fitness-tracking apps like Garmin Connect, UA Record, MyFitness Pal, etc.

    I would like for ManicTime to go beyond "work tracking" and be my single "life tracking" app. To do so, it would have to gather up data from my various life tracking sources. For instance, I would like to have a view of my running/cycling/swimming training, my calorie consumption, and my sleep history next to my work history to see trends. (Some apps also track "mood"...that might be interesting to see along side work activity!)

  18. Add date range for AutoTag

    There exists cases where the same tag match has to be autotagged to tow different tags depending on the date.
    Let's take the example where I am developing the application A, which initially is intended to be developed for internal purpose, but that after 01/01/2017 some time as consequence of some commercial arrangements it has to be billed to the customer C. In this case, the autotag for the application A should map to tag "Internal Development" until 01/01/2017, and to the tag "Customer C" after 01/01/2017.

    Please let me know whether this feature is already available or will be…

  19. Ability to mark more than one tag at a time as billable

    Currently each tag must be marked individually and then set as billable. However, the UI does allow you to select more than one tag at a time. When I select multiple tags and use "set billable" would like all tags to be marked as billable.

  20. Scheduled Backups should be enabled by default

    ManicTime has a feature for scheduled backups, however these are not enabled by default. I started using manic time about a month ago... I just had my C drive crash and lost my whole database, if the backups had been enabled by default i would have been able to restore since my documents are synchronized
