  1. Plugin to export to online invoicing service(s)

    I'm guessing many of us use ManicTime because we bill customers based on time spent. I'd like to automatically generate online invoices based on ManicTime data.

    Personally I'm a fan of Xero.com, though it's possible there are more QuickBooks and Freshbooks users amongst ManicTime users.

    • MySQL as a database backend

      I would find it very helpful if manic time supported MySQL as a database backend.

      In the environment I work in all of our backend systems already use MySQL and it would be much more convenient if Manic Time did too so that we could easily query data across our databases.

        • Track Visio Documents

          Some applications like Word and Excel track the document names well. Could this functionality be extended to Visio documents as well

          • Enhancing Tracking schedule: Capture activity if user is active even though outside scheduled timeframe.

            Enhancing Tracking schedule: Capture activity if user is active even though outside scheduled timeframe.

            This is useful because the user can then track their "normal" daily usage and be prompted when they are away but still capture their "extra" usage which is outside the normal working hours.

            An example would be when a crisis occurs.

            Normal I work from 9am to 5pm. I want to be prompted when there are time gaps in my day so I have set up a tracking schedule for 9am to 5pm. THIS WORKS PERFECTLY!

            However, an emergency has occurred and I am now working…

            • Horizontal Scroll Wheel Support on Timeline

              The horizontal scroll wheel on my mouse does nothing by the looks of it. It would be preferable to have this move the timeline window forward and backwards through the day

              • Split Tagged Category and Add Across Other Tags

                I use tags to keep track of time spent on billable projects during the day. I use other tags to track time spent on non-project specific tasks, that are still billable. I would like to be able to automatically split this non-project specific time across all billable projects for the day.

                • Arc for iOS location tracking support now that the Moves App has reached EOL status

                  I was disappointed to learn today that Facebook is discontinuing the Moves App, as I've relied a lot on it to log my on-site service visits. I've found what I consider is a suitable substitute, the Arc App for iOS. I would really like to see support for this.

                      • Option to not show notes in 'Add tag' window

                        Every time I want to choose a tag, the previous typed notes are also saved to choose from (see attachment)
                        I would only like to choose from tags. And then still I would like to use the notes field, but only to be saved for that specific activity.

                        Under settings, Display, you can choose not to show Notes in 10 recent tags drop down menu, and to not show them in summary in bottom right, but you can't remove them from Add tag window. A similar setting would be helpful in this window too.

                        • Support for ADOBE SUITE + MAXON CINEMA 4D DOCUMENTS

                          I have tried Manictime, and it meet my needs. But I'm a Designer, I use about all the Adobe CC Suite, and Cinema 4D (well sometime I use Blender too). Unfortunatly Manictime doesn't record such documents, and so I can't filter them. I think that Manictime could meet the interest of lot of designer, if you add such feature. Yhanks very much.

                          • Ctrl Z should do Undo

                            I thought there was no Undo function in ManicTime because Ctrl Z does nothing. I just realised there's an Undo button in the top right corner. Please associate the Ctrl Z shortcut to this undo function. It's the universal keyboard shortcut for Undo

                            • read GMail labels as AutoTags

                              there is an obvious correspondence here

                              Perhaps there is some API to get the list of tags on the currently displayed thread or mail blotter

                              If so, then expose those within ManicTime in some way to match on selected ones via AutoTagging rule

                              • Configurable time intervals in Timeline view

                                Whilst it's currently possible to zoom in/out in the Day\Timeline view, you have to do this manually and it can be very granular so you can end up recording to the second.

                                I would like to see an option to be able to configure the default view e.g. 5min, 15min interval etc.

                                This would ease recording and categorising tags for organisations that have rules around minimum billable time, or minimum time recorded intervals e.g. 5 or 15mins particularly when auto-tagging may nto be appropriate

                                NOTE: workaround for recording time as whole mins can be found in this request "Tagging snapping…

                                • Sub-Totals for Same Tag

                                  For my time reporting, in some cases I need time broken down by tag-level-1, and in some cases by tag-level-2, this may also vary by phase of project, so after initial build, support tasks need more granular reports (tag level 2), but during build the time needs to be reported in aggregate (tag level 1).

                                  To address this it would be great if a sub-total row for all items of the same level-1 tag was an option I could turn on.
                                  Workaround is to keep toggling tag level, (which relates to: http://support.manictime.com/forums/222041-feature-requests/suggestions/9913263-timesheet-basic-advanced-ui )

                                      Tracking of open Projects instead of file names when working in IntelliJ or Eclipse so AutoTag can be used on the IDEs.

                                        I see a plugin for Visual Studio. Can you please create plugins for Notepad++, Visual Studio Code, and Atom.

                                        Thanks!
