Let's talk Wunderlist Integration alternatives
Know your options before the app is gone on May 6
The bad news: Microsoft has finally decided to shutter Wunderlist. The shut down is planned for May 6.
That means you've got about four months to figure out where you'll track your tasks (and how to get all your history and existing to-dos into your new app).
The good news: Microsoft has replaced it with Microsoft Todo, a parallel project.
Let's talk Wunderlist Integration alternatives
As it stands, if I have automated activity tracking on, it will track my time even if I also have a calendar entry booked in the same time period. I'd like to have the option of having one override the other so that I'm not double tracking my time
We would like to use TimeCamp reports to replace our existing method of submitting weekly reports. The way permissions are set up for projects/programs, too much visibility is provided to all "Project Managers" of tasks. It would be great if the notes field could be configured so that this data is only available to the direct supervisor or above, rather than anyone with project manager access to the the Project. This way, there is no concern that sensitive information in reports can be queried by people other than the person's manager, and therefore makes it possible to use these as weekly reports which highlight barriers or obstacles.
Subtotals for Invoices suggestion
Would be nice to have a sum total of hours completed for an invoice, as well as a total cost for an invoice below the "Services" category, as well as the "Products" category. Sort of like a subtotal for each section of the invoice.
Ability to assign calendar to project suggestion
I am currently working on various projects, with unique calendars (Apple, Outlook, Google, Google Project 1, Google Project 2) and project management tools, Asana, etc...
Through the calendars features, I can add one calendar to another, and through one calendar I can actually see the full scope of all my calendars, so that is great, but it is a nightmare actually keeping track how much work has been done for each project, according to each task.
It would be great, if we could assign a calendar to a project, so that any meeting added to project 1 calendar, is then added and accounted for in project 1 in timecamp automatically.
When the timer is running, I often forget to click stop, and end up with eg 23hrs writing an email. It would be good to have the option to be asked, whether you´re still working, if no activity is detected for 5, 10, 20 etc minutes. And if no user input is given, the timetracking is automatically stopped. Would be great to have the option to have tracking running in the background automatically stopped.
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.

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.
New Desktop App Bug Fixes suggestion
We switched over to the new desktop application in our office and really like it compared to the old app. However, computer tracking is not working on any computers in our office (Windows 10). I would like to continue to use the new app instead of going back to the older version just to get the computer tracking to work...
Delete Task Validation suggestion
When a task is being deleted, the attached message is displayed - which is great, except, you are being lazy.
Computers should make my job easier. You should already know if I have tasks attached or if there are no entries, because I move them all to another project. So message should be more intelligent. this would save a lot of time checking and double checking to make sure I'm not deleting any tasks/entries.
Is this not OBVIOUS? Why do you need a suggestion for basic functionality?
Why use a computer, if you make me do all the work? Does anyone in your company actually use your product?
It could be very helpful if it was possible to approve individual time records in timesheet (with a label informing who did the approval).
Reason: in a flexible organisation model, where there are several task groups and some of the employees might perform e.g. two different tasks each for different task group, it is unconfortable for those task groups' leaders to synchronize their timesheet approvals: they have to agree on who will perform the approval and whether the time recorded in their project is approved by them or not. This is an unnecessary additional work to be done.
This feature would be even better if it was available also in the week view which provides more clarity.
Billable button contrast/visibility suggestion
When clicking the "$" button to indicate whether tracked time counts as billable only changes the color of the icon. It would be a lot more visible/clear/accessible if there was a background, say a round green circle when time is selected as billable and, a greyed out(?) background for the icon.
Team Messages suggestion
Would be nice to email certain groups, or my entire team to remind them to enter time, or other reminders. The specific use case is to remind those who have entered time but not submitted, but could prove useful for other business cases as well.
I think this used to work at some point but if I try to use search to find a task with accentuated chars, such as "Développement général" for instance, it doesn't find the task. the workaround is to type whatever chars that aren't accentuated, something like "veloppement" would work. Really annoying!
Tasks should inherit settings from projects and subtasks from tasks.
For instance, I have one general project (non billable) for many administrative tasks. I create those tasks, but while the project is non billable, I have to go back to projects and change the default each time, if I create the task while entering the activity. This alone takes one-two minutes away from productivity. The same for subtasks of a task.
It goes natural that a task in a billable project is billable and one in non billable is non billable. The same goes for tags and for person assigned to the task (I don't use it, but then again).
When adding a new task, I always use the timer. But the default for creating a new task is "Add Time Entry".
Could you add a check box, within a users settings, that sets their desired default for Task Selection to be either "Start Timer" or "Add Time Entry"?
Japanese language setting praise
There are all other ways to over come language setting but
We will be delighted if you could add on a Japanese language setting.

I don't think I'm going to get much vote writing this in English, am I...
Anyway for everything else your UI's and all are beautifully designed !
