  1. 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.

    • Default Calendar (playback) Time Range

      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

        • Timeline and reports color-coded by application

          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.

            • Allow flag color to be specified by lookup database

              When browsing a day, it's easier to group similar items together if you've set the flag color to something specific. But this is tedious to do every time you set a flag. It would be nice to be able to specify the color for a flag based on a field in the lookup database and have the color automatically chosen for you.

              • 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.

                  • consider integration with a keylogger

                    this is seen by many as a dangerous tool but i find key-loggers a very important tool for self-archiving. it could offer a lot of possiblties for focused search

                    • add a Day Browser Zoom Setting "(Scale down to fit)"

                      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.

                      • 15 tic marks for playback timeline

                        Just a small UI update to include 15 minute marks to better gauge time at glance, and maybe at zoom level show 5 or 10 minute hash marks

                        • Provide a utility to "thin" captured images

                          For long term storage it is often not necessary to keep as many images. It would be convenient if there were a way to keep a subset of the captured files while deleting the rest. For example, If I capture images every 10 seconds, it would be useful to be able to thin these down to one per minute for longer term archiving.

                          • Create a proper user manual

                            Unless I missed it, there is no actual manual for the software. It's easy to use, but a proper manual would really be nice. The info on the website is in several different places, and most of it is really only a features listing showing WHAT can be done, but not HOW to do it.

                                They are chopped up and not showing active application. If I switch to showing all screens, the surface (hi res) monitor is chopped off.

                                  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.

                                  • lessen the amount of resources used and the impact on cpu temperature

                                    I've used TimeSnapper Classic for about a week and decided to give the Pro version a try. I keep close watch on my cpu temperatures with audible warnings at different temperature ranges. With the Classic version, I never got any alerts. However, the Pro version is definitely using quite a bit of cpu processes to just take a screenshot. Every time the snap is taken TS uses anywhere from 25 to 30% of the cpu processes. The only way that I could get better control of this was to check the low priority Option, set the Affinity in the Windows…

                                    • 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.

                                      • improve keyboard navigation in the Day Browser

                                        I often have the problem that I am moving through the day browser using the arrow keys and the screen updates are significantly lagging behind my key presses (this happens especially with large screenshots, e.g. from a multi-monitor RDP-session - see my other request). By the time I have found the shot I was looking for, it seems the keyboard buffer has often filled up so much that the day browser skips a couple of frames further (often it's much more than just a couple). I have seen this behaviour on all three machines that I have used TS on…
