  1. Merge tasks in Tasks view

    Sometimes tasks should really not be separate and need to be merged into one.

    Usage:
    It would be useful to have a merge feature: select task1 and click a "merge into..." link, then select the task2 you want to keep.

    Action:
    All time booked under task1 will be moved to be booked under task2 instead, then the task1 itself is marked finished so it won't show up in the active list anymore.
    There's no way to undo this action, but then ST doesn't have any undo at the moment anyway.

    Benefit:
    I won't have to manually edit every single time…

    • Calculate StartTime out of Duration and EndTime

      Should be relatively easy and for people like me who start working and forget to start the timer its easier to say, I worked until 'now' for approx. 2h

      • Stop a running task from "Edit entries"

        I work on several locations+computers. Sometimes I forget to stop a task. It would be nice to be able to stop it from within http://www.slimtimer.com/edit

        • Ability to create a list of repeated tasks

          Since many tasks we do on a daily or weekly basis, it would be wonderful to be able to create a list of those recurring tasks. That way, rather than having to type in the same task each day, you could simply choose it from your recurring task list. Also, it would be nice to be able to track a particular task across a period of time.

          • Add notes to a task

            Allow for additional notes to be added to a task, that don't display automatically (to see it click on the task, a profile setting, etc.)

            • Import tasks via CSV

              I currently use freshbooks for invoicing and timerSync for time management. The company I am freelancing at wish to use SlimTimer. SlimTimer looks great, but I wish to continue use my current apps. I do not want to run to timer at the same time, so it would be great to be able to export from freshbooks and import into SlimTimer.

              • OS X Dashboard Widget

                Along the same lines as the Google gadget, just create (or open an API up so I can make) an OS X dashboard widget to allow me to enter my time quickly without keeping the timer on my desktop space.

                • Add a default coworkers and reporters setting for all tasks

                  You should be able to set a default for the coworkers and reporters section so all tasks will be created with a default set of people, for instance your team and your boss.

                  • Task priority with color scheme so it is easier to see what tasks are urgent and what tasks aren't.

                    I often find myself looking at the list in the timer window wishing I could easily distinguish between each task and what needed done next. Tagging is an option, but even tags you can't see in the timer window. I think it would be cool to be able to see tasks in different colors and easily schedule things with a priority for coworkers as well.

                    • Fix "open in browser sidebar" in Firefox 3.0 beta 2

                      Title says it all: this doesn't seem to work for me in Firefox 3.0 beta 2: instead the timer opens in a regular tab. It worked perfectly in Firefox 2.

                      • Make slim timer available for other browsers

                        It would be most convenient if Slim Timer can support all browser, considering Google Chrome, too.

                        • Add Task - Start Timer Option

                          When adding a task, it would be grand to be able to start the timer on that task immediately as you add it -- saving you an extra step. I know it seems like -- oh that's just one step you save -- but that's something a lot of people do. Some people add tasks as they come in to work on them and this feature would be very useful for those people and I.

                                So I finally got my Thunderbird/Lightning configured using add ons to stay up to date with my gmail, google calendar, and google contacts. Now, if I could actually have my Lightning tasks link up to my slimtimer account I think I would almost be 100% where I'd like to be productivity wise.

                                • Hotkeys for task navigation like Alt-A

                                  It would be nice to have (probably, in a customizable way) quick-access hotkeys in Timer window for quick navigation with keyboard only.

                                  Like an existing Alt-A hotkey which puts focus on "Add" link.

                                  Could be, for example, Alt-0...Alt-9 (or the others) hotkeys to quickly select the appropriate task and then hit Enter to punch it in or out.

                                  If hotkeys are customizable that'd be really, really cool.

                                  This feature would be really helpful for people who type a lot: developers, admins, writers, etc.

                                      • Create an OS X Dashboard Widget

                                        If there were an iPhone version of the site (similar to Harvest's capabilities) as well as an OS X Dashboard Widget I would probably be willing to pay a monthly fee for the service. Until I can get rid of the pop-up window and just use a quick dashboard widget I'll probably love SlimTimer with only half my heart.
