  2. "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

  3. 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…

  4. Persist time selection across category

    When a user clicks between Computer Usage, Applications or Documents the time (item row they selected) is reset to the start of the day. (aka the start of the list) In my opinion it should start at the same selected (if there is a time in that category) OR the closest available. Sometimes I click between the few to get an idea of what I was doing that day to get a full picture.

  8. clipboard tracking

    To speed up tagging time with notes and to have another tool to see what I was doing, it would be nice to have a timeline that is tracking what was in the clipboard. Then it would be nice to be able to access what was in the clipboard during a time being tagged, so that as I am entering in notes for the time tagged I can paste items that were in the clipboard.

    To give you my real case scenario. I'm an IT service provider that bills by the hour. I see error messages, run commands, and go…

  9. I use the Windows 24 hour clock. I need to record time rounded to ten minutes. When I add a tag Start time displays as for example 08:22:33

    I use the Windows 24 hour clock. I need to record time rounded to ten minutes. When I add a tag Start time displays as for example 08:22:33 and End time as 09:41:00 (HH:MM:ss, the long time format). I do not need the seconds so the short date format (HH:mm) would have been fine but that option is not available. What is worse: when start/end time must be changed the colon button may have to be used four times to make amendments; you cannot use the decimal key to distinguish between minutes and seconds. That is very awkward if you…

  10. start with trace Disabled and question wether to start trace

    I would like a feature where could have Manic time start with windows but give a Message box that defines wether tracing should be enabled or disabled. Ie. when i start my laptop in the morning to read the news it is a personal thing and i do not want to record time. but when i get into work later that day i want to record everything.. and then again in the evening when i get home the reason that i start the laptop could be either personal or proffessional.

  11. Configurable "Edit" Tag Entry dialog (notes, start, end)

    Configurable "Edit" Tag Entry dialog (notes, start, end)

    When editing tagged time to modify the notes or adjust start/end times...

    A) The ability to configure and pin the items appearing on the right.
    Configure: For example, add a custom option for, say, "1 hour" to modify the active field (start, end, duration) by the 1 hour. Start time is active: resets end time to 1 hour later. End time active: resets start time 1 hour earlier.

    Pin: when "Tags" text box is selected, I could "pin" various MRU tags instead of them floating down the list based on last used.

  12. Stop watch

    Could you add a little desktop window (floating) that could be displayed as permanent window on the desktop. The additional window shall display a selectable number of tags in a list (preferable those that are already pinned).
    When someone clicks an list item representing a tagged time it starts the stop watch, if i click again it stops the stop watch and inserts the expired time with the tag clicked. Using this method some clicks that i currently need to do to start the stop watch via task menu.

  14. Tag timeline widgit

    I would like to have a tag timeline widgit or minimizing alternativ placing/making the the tag-time line accecible on top of all other windows (horisontal or vertical), approx the same size as the Windows shortcut bar. Same functionality as on the tag timeline in the main program window. This would make it even easier to tag time, and be a good reminder to keep taging on the fly.

  15. Ignore part of the header of an application

    Some applications (Adobe apps in particular) change their headers in response to the zoom level of the active document (ex. Indesign can have a header saying "New document 1.indd @ 100%" and "New document 1.indd @ 50%" etc for the same document).
    Navigating a document while zooming in and out generates a LOT of entries in the Application view that could have been one single entry.

    It would be nice to be able to tell ManicTime to ignore certain parts of a header to produce less header spam.
    Something as simple (though clunky) as "Ignore [@ 50%, @ 100%, @…

  16. xero integration

    I use Xero.com for my invoicing... currently I use Temponia to capture my timesheets and create preliminary invoices which are then posted to Xero.com. I almost always refer back to ManicTime to figure out what I was doing and then manually capture into Temponia.

    I was wondering if there could be ManicTime direct integration with Xero, or if not, then integration with Temponia?

  17. Timesheet filters

    In the timesheets section, why aren't filter tags autopopulated? Like perhaps a tag cloud or something, or better a dropdown list. If I worked on a project a month ago, I don't remember what I tagged it, so I have to go back, and search not knowing exactly where to find that info. Please add a dropdown list, with a search, instead of the current implementation.

    Also, when I select "This Year" as a date range, it selects this entire year, including days and months that haven't even happened yet. Surely this isn't usefull info. Please limit it to year-to-date.

  18. Would really like a screenshot playback like movie option from server to quickly review employee activity

    I'm a consultant, and some of my clients use monitoring software. One of the features they want is the ability to view screenshots like a movie for a given user or workstation from the server. They run random audits where a supervisor comes into the office sits down with management at the server login and quickly runs through a few days of employee activity by watching the "movie" of screen shots.
    Would love to see this in ManicTime Server. If it were added I might be able to sell some clients on this solution.

  20. Highlight entries in time sheet

    How about a feature in which we could highlight particular entries in timesheets/reports, and keep those highlighted so that when I click on "generate report" it already has those entries highlighted from last time.
