  1. 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:

    - (37 Votes) Pomodoro settings : - sound notification when the break is over
    - (3 Votes) Tag Reminder as New Window : - a window pop up with sound.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Auto tag function based on file placement and Support for archicad

    Hi.
    If manictime could tag time based on the placment of the file i am working on that would be awsome. I have several projekts, and each project has an own folder with subfolders in windows. On the projeckt there is alot of differnt files,with the onley thing common that they are all placed in the same project folder.
    So an auto tag function based on file placement woult be great!

    Could you add support for Graphisoft Archicad. It dosent show up in the documnet line correct in manic time.

  5. 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.

  7. a flag in the timeline showing previously billed time

    I need the ability to place a flag stating when I last billed. Another way to implement this would be to either add another tag or change the current "billable" tag to "billed."

  8. Pomodoro Timer steals focus: use system tray pop up as an option

    Currently, the pomodoro timer opens a window that steals the focus from the current application.
    While this might be good to signal the break, it can also affect current work. Especially when working with graphic or engineering applications where a single command might take several minutes (e.g. using a polygon mask in a graphics program), this might jeopardize the work of the user, making the technique inefficient.

    Therefore I'd like to suggest to implement an option where a system tray popup is shown instead. When the user clicks the pop up, the window to tag the break is shown (as…

  11. Merge Documents/Application Timelines from different devices

    Using multiple devices in my workflow, and having changed computers a few times, I now have multiple Timelines for Application and Documents and it's very cumbersome to calculate how much time I have spend on a specific file/folder. It would be nice to have the option to merge multiple inputs to a single timeline. I understand the risk and/or possibility of concurrency or superposition but having 11 timeline to search through separately make time reporting more difficult.

  12. Tag/Comment the entire day of work

    It would be useful to have the possibility to tag or comment the entire day in order to remember additional facts happened during the day.

  14. Be able to Track Productive / Non productive Settings Per User or Group

    I would like to be able to mark certain applications or websites as productive for 1 user or department but unproductive for another user or department. Additionally I can't find anyway that the end user can see Productive/Unproductive on the client. What am I missing?

  15. Track Google Drive and OneDrive folder path too - Document Timeline

    I use AutoTagging on used file folders on my hard drive. However, from files opened on my synchronized Google Drive and OneDrive etc. the folder isn't tracked. It only shows the file name on the documents timeline.

  16. Alphabetize Recent Tags

    I have a lot of active tags at any point in time, so I show 40 recent tags (Settings->Display). It would be helpful if those tags appeared alphabetically.

    If I want to read my notes column in timesheet view I "always" need to expand it, please do this by default.

  18. Exporting Tags + Applications in one file

    When I export and import Applications, it would be good to see an additional column containing the corresponding Tags I used on them so I can easily verify if my tags are correct. That's Applications+Tags in one file export/import.

  19. Combined View

    I'd like to be able to combine Documents, Applications and Tags all into one single view where I can see them merged together to get better layered timeline of what I worked on during the day rather than having to look at each one separately.

  20. Screenshot after switching window - optional/time delay

    I just noticed that manictime creates a screenshot every time the active window changes. this creates an unnecessary amount of images in some cases and it would be great have an option to disable for some processes or to control it with a delay (screenshot after X seconds still active..)
