  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

    Regards

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. VSO/VSTS Integration

    I noticed there is a Plug for Git. I would like plugins for VSO (cloud) and VSTF (on-prem) integration.

  8. 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.

  10. 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

    Would be great if it can have a plugin for Microsoft Teams - as this is now the replacement for Skype for Business etc.

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  14. 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…

  15. 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?

  16. Include Autotags in Statistics

    Right now, the Statistics reports doesn't include Autotags - you have to copy autotags to regular tags in order to get them to show in Statistics. This is counterintuitive and not user-friendly: the whole purpose of autotags is to automatically tag certain activities, and not to include them in Statistics reports means those reports are inaccurate.

    I have ALL my activities autotagged, and then monitor a statistics report to see how much time I've actually spend working as opposed to slacking off, surfing the web, etc. If I haven't put in enough time then I can decide to stay later.…

  17. 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 )

    This ticket also would probably address my…

  18. commandline support for stopwatch

    I would like to be able to control the stopwatch via commandline.

    something like:
    manictime /start mylabel
    manictime /stop

    I would like to use this to track incoming calls from my sip-phone

  20. Track several tasks simultaneously

    Sometimes, it is possible to perform a bit of multitasking. A task may require attention every 5-10 minutes, in which time another similar task may be performed. - Both tasks are billable.
    An example is server maintenance for a client (or several clients). Installing and configuring updates, software, etc. - Often such tasks are "fragmented" and may be performed in parallel.
    It would be great to be able to have an option in Settings to switch on "Track Multiple tasks simultaneously", which enables several stopwatches in parallel. - This saves me from having to manually tracking it and manually adding…
