We need to have more options for classifying our tasks. Acute challenge is that the two options billable / non-billable are not enough for our company.
More/Custom Project Colors suggestion
Is it possible either to add more colors or better yet to make it possible to color-code projects with custom HEX color?
The projects filter field, when the Active Tasks field is selected, allows the user to select Projects and Tasks with checkboxes.
As soon as Active and Archived Tasks is selected, the filter changes and you are only able to select one item from the filtered list.
This is totally counter-productive as we report from different sources (TimeCamp/Zendesk/BaseCamp) and some task may still be active but others are archived (or Solved/Closed in Zendesk or Completed in BaseCamp 3).
Even though we can draw the report from a customised report and filter it in Excel, the custom reports do not show the Time Start and End and this just makes it a time-consuming exercise.
PLEASE change the filter option for Active and Archived reports to the same as Active only.
Issues with Xero integration suggestion
Currently TimeCamp automatically imports ALL Xero Contacts regardless of whether they are Cusdtomers, Suppliers, or anything else - even Credit Card Companies. If I delete any from TimeCamp, the next time I open TimeCamp the deleted Contacts are back again. This is unworkable.
The best option would be to show a list from Xero, filtered by Contacts that are Customers, and allow the User to select the Customers to import.
Firefox add-on suggestion
Could you implement a firefox add-on, like the Chrome one ?
I use Todoist and the actual integration only let TimeCamp to see the projects and tasks hierarchy, but doesn't allow to see priority, planification, etc. So it is far easier to start task time count from Todoist.
Limit system tray to one TimeCamp icon suggestion
I expect the Windows system tray to show just one TimeCamp icon, but when I open the tray an icon appears for each process. Shortly after this, the icons condense to just one. Please eliminate the redundant icons.

The ability to delete computer activities directly from the timesheet without deleting the entire time entry. selecting the unwanted ones with the check boxes that are already there, but then have a delete selected option or something
There are sometimes errors on my computer that pop up during the night, or adds that pop up and it records that as active computer time when it is not. It seems to even record the reminder to track my time as active computer time. So my timesheet is full, but the majority is computer functions that I'd like the program to completely ignore. It is quite labour intensive to have to go in each day and delete all of the unwanted computer activity, and it appears to be currently all or nothing. For example I can't select certain entries in the "timecamp data collector" computer activity for it to delete, it's either delete all entries or none.
Bulk edit: billable/non-billable suggestion
Every task is billable by default. There is no setting to change this, and no way to bulk edit, so it takes quite a lot of navigation and clicking to change tasks from billable to non-billable (or vice versa). It's nice that I can change the colour for a whole tree at once, but billing is more important to manage easily.
For example: client with the name clientX and I have multiple projects underneath clientX.
At the moment I can shere the link but I have to explicitly check project 1 and 2.
What will be nice is if we have a link on the root project to include all sub projects so I don't have to resend an link every time we add an project.
So ideally it will be a page where the client can go and pull their own reports without logging in
Today, only timecamp can display a external calendar. But, in my company, we use outlook calendar. I'd like to display my timesheet in my outlook calendar.
Missing widget error
I had TimeCamp (old) installed on Windows 10. I installed TimeCamp Desktop (new). Both applications were then running. Both widgets were available. I closed the old application and uninstalled it and the Widget for the new application went away. I reinstalled the new application. No change. I rebooted. No change. I downloaded the version again and reinstalled. No change. Where has the widget gone?
Ambiguous autocomplete settings suggestion
This message instructs me to click on the gear icon in the upper right corner to change the autocomplete settings. Unfortunately (1) there are two gear icons near the upper right corner (the intended icon is the one in the screenshot, but there is another under the messagebox) and (2) when I click on the correct gear icon there is no setting called autocomplete mode (the intended setting is labelled 'Synchronise timeframe with duration...'). This instruction needs some clarification.
Hide from timesheet suggestion
Please give us a category to hide activities from the timesheet. It would be super useful to hide background applications like antivirus, anti-malware, etc.
So the application will still be tracked but if the [activity x] get marked as a category [hide] it does not show on the timesheet.
Merge Duplicate Tasks in Bulk suggestion
We have multiple users and that means duplicate tasks. It would be much easier to generate reports for a task if we could merge duplicates in bulk, by selecting all of the tasks that are the same, and clicking "merge."
Sync task widget with Slack integration suggestion
The task widget does not show when a timer is running, if the timer is started via Slack. This is confusing because (a) there is no indication that a timer is running, except via the browser application and (b) the widget can start and stop timers for project in Slack so I expect the widget to also be able to stop the timer after I have started one via Slack (just like the web application does).
A colour change or some other obvious indicator to show when the timer is running would be nice. The text changes and so does the play button but they are very subtle, especially considering how small the widget is on a 4k display. I have attached an example of the approach Time Doctor uses. Any number of alternative approaches might be good. In Time Doctor the task colour changes, the header colour changes, the icon and its colour change, and in the widget the text goes bold and a light turns on to show that the app is 'recording'.
The bubbly-white view is much more difficult to read. Please add an option that allows to keep using the current display and does not force to update to the new. Or give us the option to customize display colors, etc..
(Personally, I will be moving away from TimeCamp if I am forced to use the new display).
