  1. Disable capturing when the computer is locked

    Say I lock my computer and go to a meeting for an hour. It seems a little wasteful to have 3,600 screenshots of "Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to unlock this computer" (assuming I capture every second).

    • make it easier to locate pinned snapshots

      * add new Day Browser filter: "(Pinned snapshots)", analogous to the current "(Productive time)" and "(Unproductive time)"

      * possibly use a different colour or other visual indicator for pinned shots in the timeline

      Without either, if you want to locate pinned items you either have to step through the browser frame-by-frame or trigger auto-deletion to get rid of the unpinned shots.

      • Add support for flagging a selection

        Add the ability to add two flags to be entered when selecting a time frame in the playback view, and by right clicking on the selection to add the new flag, place one at the start of the selection, and have the second placed at the end of the selection - either a empty or have it prefilled with the same task details as before the new selection's flag.

        • Allow users to set password for pause & play back images

          Allow users to set password for pause & play back images. It will be great if the application is totally hidden not even in system tray.

          • Allow plugins for timesheet integration

            The timesheet integration is great if you have full SQL access to the timesheet system, but in some environments you have an API without SQL access (like in a Microsoft Project Server environment). It would be nice to be able to write a plugin for timesheet integration rather than requiring SQL.

            The SQL integration could then also be written as a plugin that ships with TimeSnapper by default. Timesheet integration would be done by selecting the desired plugin and configuring that plugin.

              • Add productivity notifications/timers.

                Notify users if their productivity drops below a certain level or they spend too much time on a non-productive application. There are many many things that could be done in this space to make this a more robust anti-procrastination tool.

                  • 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...

                    • 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.

                      • Record a specific program

                        One of the ways we use TimeSnapper is to record the screen of our QA, trying to break our application! And it works wondefully - we can simply replay the steps immediately.

                        However, instead of recording the entire screen all the time, I want TimeSnapper to only record a specific process (or processes).

                        Could you add that option? Alternatively, maybe only record those processes that are already in the "productive" group?

                        Thanks!

                        • Show the current flag info in the tray tooltip

                          When I put my cursor over the TimeSnapper icon in the tray, it currently says "TimeSnapper (Active)" or the like.

                          Instead of just saying "Active" it'd be nice to show the info about the most recent flag, like what task it thinks I'm working on. That way I can look to see if I forgot to add a new flag.

                          Right now the only way to do this is to go all the way into "Browse Day."

                          • 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.

                                • thumbnail View With Overlay

                                  Instead of showing one image at a time, why not show 60 images in a filmstrip like view with the timeline across the bottom. This way it would be easy to tell at a glance where a task starts and stops.

                                  • create a mobile app for Jailbroken iOs devices

                                    I would like to see a mobile version of this app, a lot of my computing has moved to my iPhone and iPad. I rely heavily on TimeSnapper to help me keep track of my activity and it has no ability to reach my mobile devices.

                                    I understand that most mobile operating systems do n allow the level of access it would need, so it might need to be limited to jailbroken devices. I suggest exploring the idea to determine if it can be done and done profitably.

                                    Please post the results in the FAQ.

                                    Thank you for a great…

                                      • make sure the default settings do not delete images

                                        when i reinstalled windows, and accordingly reinstalled timesnapper, It defaulted back to the default setting for image retention, whereby it promptly deleted all my images (except for 5MB) arg nooooooo!

                                        • Include a Productive filter in the Browsing day filter drop down

                                          The productivity score involves defining which applications are considered productive to get a percent score. I'd like to be able "Play my day" with just the applications I consider as productive being included in the timeline.
