  1. Integration with Slack

    Would like to be able to see what channel I am posting to in Slack application. Right now it just says "Slack" so you don't really know what project that was for.

    • tag shortcuts should work also inside tag window

      It would be nice if configured tag shortcuts would also work in an opened tag windows (so shortcut could be used to tag a time in the automatic popup after returning from a break)

      • Tracking

        Auto tagging very helps, but tracking collect only header of windows. Some application had same header but content are different. They are contents depends from its command line of application. How about collect command line of active application?

        • Display in UTC

          I travel a lot to different time zones and need to change the Windows system clock's time zone when I do. The ManicTime timeline displays in local time (I presume) so as a result I end up with 'overlapping' activities in my timeline. I suspect the labels then also overlap and are not added.
          This would all be resolved if ManicTime would record and display in UTC.

          • Import CSV to new timeline

            Hey, i'd like to have a function to import a CSV file to a new timeline.

            For example one could export all emails from one folder of thunderbird to a CSV file. This file would include subject, from, to, date time. After import to ManicTime each emails would be shown in an additional timeline with a configurable duration of x min.

            Another example: Export the call log from your phone / PBX, with phone numbers, date, start, end time and import it to ManicTime.

            Would be very helpful :-)

              • Tagging snapping at 5min

                When you tagging it should be possible that they can snapp only at X minutes. For examples 5 Minutes or 15 Minutes.
                So that no Second or non rounded Mintues can be used.

                • Android Client should log the names of all used aplications - same way as the desktop app

                  Could you please update the Android Client so that it is automatically logging the names of used applications the same way that the desktop application does?

                  This is a deal-breaker for a lot of the clients using it. Just seeing active is nice but it would be way more useful if at least the names of the used applications would be logged. And that should be hard to implement in code at all (speaking as a software engineer).

                  Thank you

                  • Show the correct timeline when travelling to different time zones

                    I travel to different time zones and the way that the data is recorded or displayed is on the previous time zone and not with the time of the current time zone.

                    Potential solution 1:
                    Store the data in UTC and convert to the local timezone to display it properly.

                    Potential solution 2:
                    Allow selecting the time zone to use to display the timeline in the UI.

                    • Detect remote desktop connections

                      It would be nice if ManicTime could detect that a computer is controlled through a remote desktop connection such as through TeamViewer, and give the option to not track that time as active.

                      I have ManicTime installed on both my home and office computer, and sometimes need to do something on my office computer remotely when I'm at home. In effect, this time gets counted as doubly active, because my home ManicTime client will detect that I'm working in the TeamViewer application, while the office ManicTime client thinks I'm actually on the computer there and working in the local applications.…

                      • Skype for business plugin für locally installed Exchange server

                        As documented the Skype for business plugin only works with Office 365 and not with a locally installed Exchange server (http://support.manictime.com/knowledgebase/articles/1108099-skype-for-business-plugin). We want to push the usage of ManicTime in our company but therefore really want the Skype for business plugin working with our locally installed Exchange server.

                          • Auto ignore auto tags smaller than X seconds

                            Sometimes, I have several project windows for different customers open at once.
                            When I switch windows and get the wrong one, I switch again to the right one.
                            It would be cool if the resulting auto tag could be ignored in the same way as gaps can be filled.

                            This could either be a global setting or a per-auto-tag setting.

                            Thanks!

                            • Draggable Timeline (middle/right mouse drag)

                              I find it slightly cumbersome to navigate the timelines within a day.
                              I know there are currently two ways to do this:
                              1. Dragging the window in the fixed line below the timelines
                              2. Crtl+Mousewheel

                              Both are not perfect for me - dragging the timelines (not the orange bar) button would be great.
                              This could either be triggered by a middle or a right mouse drag, or with SPACE+Left mouse drag (I think Photoshop uses this combination) - but I like the first two better, because the require less action.

                                    • Ability to chose the old (non-flat) theme

                                      A non-flat design with less saturated background colors would be really nice

                                        Currently you can import Google Calendar events. I'd like to export tags to Google Calendar

                                        • 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.
