  1. 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.…

  2. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  10. Statistics or weekdays and hour of a day

    Hello,

    I would like to be able to see usage statistics about different weekdays (i.e. Monday, Sunday...) in a given period (i.e. last year).

    I would also like to be able to see usage statistics about different hours of a day (i.e. from 12:00 to 13:00) in a given period (i.e. last year).

  13. 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…

  14. Cisco PBX call tracking timeline

    Record start/end time, number, name or other identifying information on a separate timeline

    The Cisco system (and others, I'm guessing) have web portals (and hopefully APIs) for individual users to access their call records from a central place, but those would require authentication to a central system.

    I was able to dial my attached phone from within Outlook and from a company web phone directory, a la Skype, though, so there is some sort of mechanism to control the physical phone itself from the desktop. Hopefully this control would also include the ability to read that phone's call log, rather…

  15. 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…

  16. 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).

  20. 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?
