  1. Option to fix Screenshot alignment

    While moving the mouse curser over the timeline, the position of the thumbnail often flips ... from the left to the right of the cursor.
    This makes it sometimes very difficult to catch the screenshots.
    I'd prefer am option to "lock the position of the screenshot" to ONE side of the cursor. Even if they get out of sight in extreme situations.

    • Hit Y instead of mouse click when asked "are you still working on ..?

      Hit Y instead of mouse click. I am often working on the key board. In order to confirm i have to move my hand to the mouse click the Yes and move back to the keyboard to continue. Hitting Y or Alt Y would be better i think

      • Drag tags within a day

        I would like to move tag entries along the timeline. Now I have to do it by dragging the starting point and the ending point.

        • Reporting needs lots of improvements

          The current method of reporting where each date is a column is really cumbersome. Can we get an option to make one row per date instead? Then the whole report would only be a few columns wide, rather than growing by both columns and rows.

          • Please more tag items in context menu

            There are only 10 last used tags in context menu for adding label (by right click). Please increase this number (up to 20) or make it customizable.

            • Dealing with universam Apps

              Thank you guys...Manic Time has made my time tracking so much easier...awesome work.
              Somehow it seams to struggle with detecting activity or filter processes for Apps from the Windows store under Windows 10, but that doesn't worry me to much (for instance filtering Netflix App). As a software eng. I can understand the pity of dealing with the new Universal App's.... Big bravo to the developers team...

              • Notification when using Timers

                A modal desktop notification when using Timers or Pomodoro.

                Sometimes I don't know that my timer finished if I don't check with Manictime icon in the tray.

                  • nightly

                    Firefox Nightly works almost always like Firefox, but manictime doesn't know that it's more or less the same. Hopefully the firefox document timeline plugin could recognize "Nightly" and "Firefox Developer Edition" with only a minimal adaptation.

                      • Files paths for Revit Models

                        I'd expect Revit would be similar to AutoCAD to program in, and would be very helpful to people in the building design industry.

                        • Record screen video when an application runs

                          Create video recordings for certain applications. For me, I want to record all of my Skype calls automatically (audio and video). Currently I do this manually with SnagIt, but sometimes i forget.

                          • Sum of active time shown on analytics/timeline

                            I review my employees time on web app screen analytics/timeline. I need to know the total activate time and look at the applications and files they had open. So it would be great to have the sum of active time to left or right of Computer usage bar

                            • Timesheet Basic Advanced UI

                              I often toggle the filters on and off change the group by.
                              Having these on different tabs makes this task lots of extra clicks.

                              • Show domain instead of page when web browsing

                                As an example, my activity log has 25 lines of 5-10 seconds each duration from my looking through the ManicTime help just now. Each new page I looked at created a new line. It would be far more useful data if it could combine those into a domain listing. As another example, all the time I spent on NYtimes.com would show on one line, rather than a different line for each article. I know I can switch it to combine all my MS Edge time, but that is too high level. Thanks for considering the idea.

                                • Ability to report outdated documentation

                                  I'd like to see this feature on your support website. The documentation is outdated on some pages and tells me to go to places that don't exist or show screenshots from older versions of the application which have changed.
                                  for example http://support.manictime.com/knowledgebase/articles/686349-advanced-search
                                  It would be nice if on the support article we could report outdated information so that it could be updated.

                                  • More rounding options (5m, 10m) and hide seconds when rounding

                                    Would be nice to have more options in the "Round to" drop list (like 5m & 10m).

                                    When rounding is enabled, the seconds could be hidden from the generated report since they are always ':00'.

                                    • Vertical Timeline for Side of Screen

                                      I think it would be really cool if the timeline could be represented vertically. This way, I could keep the MT window up on my screen at all times as a thin window on the sides. Think something along the lines using Windows Snap to split your screen, then making the ManicTime window very narrow. See screenshot. Like that, only timelines are vetical. Yeah. =)

                                      • You could expand your market if you could obtain the US Gov't time keeping certification.

                                        I work for a firm that has to keep time in accordance with US Government contractor rules. I've been told that after much research (recently double checked) that we can only use Oracle's time keeping app. There is apparently only one front end that is certified to work with that tool. I am searching for that name of it.

                                        This would be a huge opportunity for your firm to compete with (then sell out to) Oracle.

                                        • More Automation

                                          I would like automatic tagging to be able to assign a tag with client name, based on duration email is open or being drafted based on matching email address to list of client names and addresses. I would like the tag to include the activity "email" and a description "the subject line of the email". Similarly for documents worked on in an application I would like a tag based on folder name where document is stored matched to a list of client names and folder names; with the name of the document in the description spot and the application name…
