  1. 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.

  2. When using an application that uses Java as it's framework, TimeSnapper only lists the window as javaw.exe.

    So when using multiple applications that are written in Java, they all fall under the same umbrella.

    My specific apps are Eclipse, Netbeans, and install4j. All of these only show up as javaw.exe in TimeSnapper.

  3. A countdown timer that will notify the user with sound and Windows-popup when the time set has elapsed. A great timemanagement technique meets a windows integrated component

  4. 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.

  5. 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).

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. I only capture the active window. This can be anything from a small dropdown menu to a multi-monitor RDP session. The latter wouldn't fit into the day browser at 100% zoom but the former would be a little too "in-the-face" with the current "(To Fit)"-setting. I therefore suggest adding a zoom setting that only scales down to fit but never zooms up.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Maybe I have misunderstood the functions, but I want my productivity rate increase on certain web pages, since i use some tools on webpages. But some other pages i don't want to count as productivity at all. When I add firefox to the productivity thing then I only have a choice to enter titles on web pages that gives more productivity score, but it seems like other pages in firefox counts as productivity too? Am I right? I want som pages to count as productivity and some not at all.

  13. 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.

  14. Using build 9841 the [Win] + Z combo (or any other combo) does not bring up the TS menu for me. Thanks.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Can we remove the TimeSnapper limit of maximum 3 screens? For the majority of my use case, all of the computers have 4 screens attached.

  18. Can we have a default view for the Time Range?
    When comparing different days it's easier if it doesn't zoom differently for every day.

    A good starting point for a default would be 8am to 6pm. That would cover 90% of use cases. It could be an optional, configurable setting.

    Thanks

  19. Timeline activity bars and report percentage bars color-coded by application -- default (distinct) colors by default, but user should be able to set/override. Colors should be remembered -- permanently associated with an application. Same colors should appear in timeline and in reports.
