  1. Save snapshot images as a movie

    I was thinking that difference between images may compress better as videos since the codec is designed to stream the pixel areas that are changed from the keyframe. Seems like h.264 or even h.265 can compress like images from snapshot to snapshot better than saving them individually. I did a test of some JPGs that are 11MB for a few hours and the same mp4 I made a slideshow from is about 8MB.

  2. Play back crashing in 2.0.1.1

    I'm finding the movie playback feature is crashing regularly in 2.0.1.1. I have dual 1920 x 1080 displays and have the play frame delay set to 75ms. Whilst going through a weeks worth of screen captures it'll lock up and become unresponsive at least 2 or 3 times. No amount of waiting seems to resuscitate it, clicking on it produces the standard microsoft unresponsive dialog with the options to wait or close the application.

  4. Shortcut key to bring up new flag\note dialog while running in the system tray.

    I have blocks of time where I switch tasks often (every 2-5 minutes) and other blocks where I work on the same thing for hours. It's inconvenient enough to pick up the mouse and right click the system tray every time I switch that I just don't do it, especially when it's the only thing I have to use the mouse for. It's also extremely annoying to have it pop up repeatedly while I'm working on one thing for a long period. It would be nice to have a shortcut key I could just fire whenever I wanted to add…

  5. Improve browsing for multiple monitors

    Save the image from each monitor to its own file, then tile the images rather than having them in a wide strip.

    I regularly work on three monitors, browsing can become a nightmare of zooming in and out if I'm switching between active monitors a lot. Having the images tiled would mean that I can view it in a larger zoom and have to zoom in and out less.

  6. Add option for manual snapshot

    I have TimeSnapper set to take a snapshot every 5 minutes, but sometimes I want a specific screen to be included in the record.

  9. Extract URL Support for Microsoft Edge Browser

    Currently Timesnapper extracts URL for all my main browser, except Microsoft Edge (replacing IE eventually). It only reports it as MS-EDGE. Would be awesome if the URLs would be extracted for productivity reporting.

    Enhance filter to include more than just the program ie mstsc.exe. it would be very beneficial to include any file called by the exe as well, ie customer1.rdp customer2.rdp, that is included in a shortcut.

  12. Improve Multi-monitor Support

    Many work-spaces include these days support more than 3 monitor setups. It would be nice to have support for more than 3 monitors OR give us the ability to select which 3 monitors we would like to be recording from.

  13. An option to show a date/time-stamp on each capture.

    The user should be able set the location, font, font size, color, and transparency. This is important for easily documenting when the capture was taken. Maybe this is already possible, but I just have the classic free version. I'm planning to upgrade soon!

  14. Cleanup of older images on separate thread

    As it stands now, every time the application tries to archive older images to the optional archive folder, the entire Timesnapper application becomes unresponsive and no longer appears to capture screen shots. This really ought to happen on a separate thread so the app can continue unhindered by this.

  15. Disable Timesnapper for X minutes 1 - 5 - 10 minutes

    Sometimes i find myself stopping timesnapper and basicly have 1 small task to do before going back to work.

    Doing the task and then forgetting to turn timesnapper back on.
    This feature would make forgetting to start it again a non issue.

    I've found this feature very usefull in for instance anti virus software.

  16. TimeSnapper v3.9.0.3 does not capture capture apps launched as Administrator

    I've recently updated TimeSnapper and noticed today that v3.9.0.3 does not capture capture Visual Studio when ran as Administrator.

    I've sent screenshots to support@timesnapper.com on 8/09/2015

    (Running Windows 10 with a triple monitor setup)

  17. Add a third column for non-productive applications

    Everytime that I go through the column of uncategorized applications to move an application to the productive applications, I have to go through all the applications that I already know are non-productive. It would save a lot of time in categorizing if I could move applications to a non-productive column as well (maybe a nicer name but that's what I mean) so I don't have to scroll past Solitaire over and over again...

  18. count as productive but not capture a screen.

    I want to filter so it will not capture a screen (security/ PII) But I want that to be included in a productivity score. Or maybe capture a 'blurred' image

  19. Allow correction of flags for date and time mis-entry

    I occasionally work weekends but do not have TS set to auto prompt on weekends. So at end of day, or the next day, I log the time. Sometimes I make mistakes on the Flag, Either the day, or time or the Flag description itself.

    There's no way I can find to edit a flag once its entered. It would be a great feature, and also the ability to add details to a flag, like billing codes, after the fact.
