    I've used time trackers that shut off automatically and I've found that having to go back and delete time that you've accidently tracked is easier than having to add time when it shuts off without you knowing.  For me this would have to be a setting that you can turn on or off.   

    If I'm talking to a customer on the phone wireless in meetings and I'm recording my time and if it were to shut off automatically I'd waste time having to re-enter my stuff.

    Well, every one prefers diferent using.
    But the suggesting feature is quite common for apps like TimeTracker.
    It's supposed to be optional.

    Toggl is working like that.
    When the user is idle for a specified time (in setting), it's recognized by the app.
    As soon as the user come back to pc (is active again), a popup shows with information: You have been idle for .... 45 minutes during traking.
    And offer three possible solutions:
    1) remove the period of time when the use was not active

    2) add it to the current task

    3) create a new task

    Yes, we both agree that if this were implemented it would have to be a setting to turn on or off.   I like the three options you mentioned.

    Hi Both,

    thank you a lot for sharing your ideas. On the client front we are currently focusing on two items i.e. 1) adding basic functionalities to the Mac client and 2) releasing a brand new Windows client which is going to use the same framework our new Mac client uses. Once those items are out of the door we will start adding new features and this sounds like a good one for sure.

    In the meantime, let's gather more feedback on here.

    Thank you again, and I'll keep you posted!

    Regards,

    Andrea
