  1. Centralized Management of Client Settings

    We need a way be able to have Setting "Profiles" that are centrally stored and able to be assigned to users or groups of users (or everyone of course). Then the client would check in from time to time and obtain the latest settings.

    • Let's Encrypt Certificate Support

      It would be great if you could integrate an Let's Encrypt Certificate request/renewal functionality for the ManicTime server so it automatically can use them.

      • record keyboard activity

        As i do reports on a weekly basis and to be more precise on activity tracking , i tend to use manictime & a keylogger combination.
        it would be nice to have that feature to be integrated .
        the keylogging would have to be toggleable on demand

            • Ability to define labeled color sets

              Instead of having to choose each color from the complete color range, have the possibility to defined labeled colors, that can be used in tags/autotags/folders.

              • Minimum Activity Duration - UPDATE/FIX

                Currently the minimum activity duration does not work as a user would expect it.

                Example:

                I set it to 60 seconds.

                I have Chrome open for 5 minutes, this all works good.
                I then have outlook open for 40 seconds
                I then have calculator open for 30 seconds.
                It will list that I have had calculator open for 70 seconds total when it fact that is incorrect.

                My suggestion would be to keep it as the main application Google Chrome until I have had another application open for more than my specified time eg I have calculator open for more…

                • Interface Skins and Classic Style UI

                  The old ManicTime looked so much better. I've been using only the classic 2.5.4.0 version as the tags, colours and theme are just so much better to read and represent. I really hate the new UI, sure it's easy enough to use the old version but after sometime lots of bugs and features will be left out to those who want to stick with the classic UI. Please offer Classic style and a Skins options for users, most great programs and techie programs have skinnable options. Nobody wants to be forced using a UI they dislike especially the new look…

                  • Tags Groups/Categories

                    I would like to group some Tags together for some calculations. This could be done either by Grouping Tags to one Aggregating Tag, and thus allowing Tree-Like structure, or by placing Tags to certain Categories (Forest-Like structure).

                    • combine timelines from more than one computer for single user

                      I use a desktop in the office and a laptop when I'm not. I'd like to have the desktop automatically add the laptop timelines, or at least the tags.

                          • Stretch/Scale Screenshots Option

                            There should be an option to make the screenshots stretch/scale in the viewer window while outside (and even inside) freeze mode.

                            • Timesheet remember the previous rounding settings

                              I always use the following settings in the timesheet: enable rounding, to the near 0.25 minutes and never round to zero. Obviously everyone will prefer different settings, but most likely want to use the same rounding settings each time.

                              Any chance manic time could remember the most recently used timesheet rounding settings?

                              • Sound when an event occurs

                                One feature, which has been constantly neglected so far is -- sound --. The idea is to connect a sound with a certain event, usually when a time interval is over.

                                To emphasize, that I'm not alone in this wish, I'm summarizing the threads which has also expressed this issue:

                                • conditional autotags

                                  If would be incredibly helpful if the autotags could use conditional logic/rules. Some examples are:

                                  I would like to append the autotag 'OvertimeRate' to anything in work tags that are matched between 7pm and 7am so I can bill at different rates.

                                  I would like an autotag only be applied if Tag matching a specific word is not present. This way I will no longer have to spend time checking my timesheet for double billing.

                                  Thank you for the great product.

                                  • Timesheet reports - highlight selection and calculate sum in status bar like Excel

                                    This is me being lazy and generating a month report for example and clicking different entries for a total time of those highlighted entries.

                                    After generating any type of report, I can either shift click a start and end point to multiple select or press CTRL and choose a number of different entries. It would be really good the total of this selection was calculated in the status bar, similar to Excel.

                                    Screen shot of Excel of exported data for comparison of UI.

                                    • open document from advanced search of application timeline

                                      I would like to be able to search the Applications timeline (for words appearing in a web page title, etc.), find a web page I am looking for, right-click on that page, and then Open the associated URL in my browser. Right now an Open option appears on the right-click menu for the found items, but it is grayed out.

                                      • Screenshots Text Searchable / OCR

                                        I desperately want to be able to search the text within screenshots. This would make my life 100000x easier. As I switch between many clients I have to work my way through each screenshot working out what client that bit of time was for etc.

                                        • More shortcuts please...

                                          It would be nice to be able to use more shortcuts. For example: Create Autotag rule, Copy Autotags to tag timeline etc. The ideal solution would be to have the opportunity to assign shortcut to every function.
