The new server now supports a way for you to continue the timelines on the new machine, So you could install MT on a new machine, connect to the server, then pick an old machine and say you want to continue tracking on that machine.
We just didn't have the time to add the feature in MT. We will add, it should help some.
Otherwise I agree, it would be great if that would be one timeline, but it would require a lot of changes and quite a few thing would be harder to use.
Only billable checkbox should be saved with the timesheet.
Maybe the problem is that you loaded saved timesheet, then changed billable? Because it will not automatically modify the saved timesheet. For any change you need to save it again.
It works on a Mac. More about how it works is written here
Hi, you can't use free version, it requires a license.
I hope we get to a cloud version soon, then you wont have to host anything. And I think the server will also work on Linux and Mac soon. We will see.
Of course another possibility is to expand the Mac client with UI so it is a stand alone version, which, if I understand you correctly, is what you would like to see.
In any case, this feature is too general. If we start working on this today, we would have to know which features are most desired. I guess tagging is a start. I'd personally add timesheets.
What I want to say is that we can't port all features and then close this issue. So it would be good to have a list of most desired features and votes for that.
For now its done, v1.2 is on the site.
I should probably close it, and then a new suggestion can be entered for UI.
I'll repost the link and let me know if you have any questions.
On the server it looks the same as if it came from Windows client. You get three timelines (Computer usage, Applications, Documents), but no Tag timeline. So every report works the same, there is no difference if it came from Mac or Windows.
Currently you could run tracker on the Mac, send data to the server, then load timelines on a Windows ManicTime and tag there.
We are working on server tagging, which will be useful if you only have a Mac. I think we should have it ready in about a month. When we are done, there will be a page on the server where a Mac user will be able to tag time, similar to how it is done on Windows client now.
We finally made it to beta of our ManicTime tracker for Mac. This is not a full ManicTime port, it will only send usage data to ManicTime server, so you still need ManicTime Server installed somewhere.
It should be useful for companies or individuals working on multiple platforms.
.Net core, we will try to port the server in a couple of months.
Currently ManicTime is windows based so docker would not help. You still cant run windows apps on Linux even if there is a Docker container.
By the end of the year I hope the server will run on .Net core, which would mean it will also run on Linux. Then we can also create a Docker. But until we have a Linux version there is no way to run it on Nas.
Wouldn't that then be just Active time? Statistics, Computer usage, Active time?
Linux beta version is on the site now, hope you get a chance to test it.
For now it is similar to Mac, so tracker only.
Yes, you can also do most of this on the server, tagging included (its not enabled on demo, but you will see how it works on your server).
Can you explain some more about this. I don't understand what you mean.
How many of these fields are constants, they don't change with each export?
For each field, could you tell me if you would change it with each time you tag, or would it remain constant. For example bank account, I imagine this is not something which would change every time you tag?
We have Quickbooks export from timesheet. We also have Freshbooks plugin where you can tag time to Freshbooks tasks and then send work back to Freshbooks.
If we were to add Xero support, how should it work?
Countdown timer and pomodoro timer work similarly to a stopwatch, and they both show tag window. Maybe they would help.
Currently the only way is to first transfer autotags to tags, then use Show only untagged activities ...
Can you send me an example of how it works now and how it should work?
Timelines can also be removed/hidden in Pro version. Open timeline editor (gear icon on the left side just above timelines), hide Computer usage timeline.
Bottom left part will show details as you describe, bottom right part will show summary per domain. Click on Documents timeline to select it, in the bottom right part you should find summary per domain.
Currently you can't. We do have start and end keywords, but they work on time only.
We will add it in the next version.
I suggest you first copy to Excel, there you can then select by columns and paste to Oracle.
We will add more productive/unproductive groups.
Client is a stand alone app. It would make sense to add productive/unproductive feature without needing a server. But then some will like to use local feature, some server feature and then it quickly becomes complicated :). So for now you can only see it on the server.
Here is my understand of the issue, correct me if I'm wrong. Say you have these tags:
Project 1, Task 1 [billable] - 5hrs
Project 1, Task 2 [billable] - 3hrs
Project 2, Task 3 [billable] - 4hrs
Project 2, Task 4 [billable] - 2hrs
Non project work [billable] - 4 hrs
You'd like to split Non project work to the other 4 projects, so that each gets an extra hour?
If this is correct, then you can't do it.
For this to work we would have to somehow know that those are project tags and that there is a special non project tag which should be split over the other project tags. So in other words, we would need to have a structure where you would type your projects, then type your non projects, then somehow tell the app that that non project is work on projects of the day...
I can only think of two solutions:
-you add this manually at the end of the month when you are making timesheets. You see the projects and you add 1/Nth of time to each on N projects.
-you could use export timesheet and create some script which will process this the way you want.
I don't quite follow, but does this help in any way?
This is not related to statistics, but I will mention that timesheet based on autotags does work. (select autotag timeline as a source for timesheet)
There are three buttons next to Add tag button. If you choose left one, ManicTime will allow you to double tag. If you select middle or right one, you will not be able to double tag and selection will be modified to only include untagged time.
