      Are there any plans to add App Usage Tracking to the Android App? It seems it would be possible as long as the user allows "Usage Data Access" to the ManicTime App. The Rescue Time App seems to be able to view the other running apps, but I don't like how it lacks a timeline (it only shows aggregate time, which is useless for my purposes), and I prefer ManicTime in general.

          Ps. I have noticed that if additional time is logged for a single day, even if the Note was one which was used previously for the same day, the "Save Work" function will cause a new (duplicate) time log to be added to JIRA, rather than updating the existing one.

          I suppose it is because the two logs have different Notes fields (due to the non-distinct concatenation)

          Thanks for implementing this feature in the JIRA add-in! :-)

          One thing I noticed is that the concatenated "notes" are a little strange looking since they are showing duplicated notes (see: http://imgur.com/ln87KCu)

          I know it's a little fancier, but it would be nice if the notes could be de-duped before concatenation...

          pseudo-code...
          var List<string> allNotes = {all worklogs for tag - notes};
          var distinctNotes = allNotes.Distinct();
          foreach (var note in distinctNotes)
          {
          concatenatedNotes += ", " + note;
          }

          Thanks again!

          Thanks!

          Sure, I think that covers all the options I had thought of at this time. I left the notes as a separate option in case you had other grouping ideas... ;-)

          But this would be great.

          Regarding the current default... when I did my initial tests, it appeared that I got two logs witht he same note... but perhaps there was an errant space or something which caused them to actually be different...? Anyway, I appreciate the clarification of the current functionality.

          I've thought about the implementation for this a little bit more. Here is a mocked-up UI update suggestion: http://i.imgur.com/ixGlPu1.png?1

          The options in the drop-down could include:
          - None (default)
          - By Day/Notes
          - By Day/Issue Tag

          The help icon could show an explanation like this:
          --------------------------------
          None: Each activity will be logged individually to the Jira issue.

          By Day/Notes: All activities tagged with the same issue and with the same 'Notes' data will be consolidated into a single Jira timelog per day.

          By Day/Issue Tag: All activities tagged with the same issue will be consolidated into a single Jira timelog per day. All 'Notes' data will be concatenated together for the consolidated timelog (unless the "Exclude Notes from Jira" option is selected, in which case the notes will not be included).

          Any rounding options selected will be applied to timelogs AFTER consolidation.
          --------------------------------

          Heather Floyd commented  · 

          Another possible option would be to exclude notes, so that they are kept locally, in Manic Time, but not sent to JIRA. This could be used in conjunction with the "consolidate by issue/date".

          *I think consolidation is important to keep JIRA time logs cleaner, and also so that rounding happens on all the time together, rather than on each tiny timelog.

            Mac-users on our team would also be interested in using ManicTime...
