    • Stats on Ranking Screen

      On the ranking screen, to see a brief stats summary would be nice. I would like to see what it takes to be #1 not just who is.

      -Thanks

      • Edit Solution Name

        Allow me to Edit the Solution Name.

        I have multiple workspaces for each projects for each version. In current scenario I see the same solution name for all this projects. I would like to manually edit the name and append the version details.

        • Tag Time

          I should have the ability to start or stop a tag. All activities within that window could be filtered by that tag. The tag itself can span periods currently not tracked by codealike. For instance I could start a new tag called "issue #6516", then I could start an existing tag "reviewing with tester", and I could start another tag "Tammy". When I review I could look at time spent coding total, time spent coding for #6516, time spent debugging with "review with tester", or time spent marked "Tammy". This would allow us to use codealike to track development time…

          • Detect: Your Technology Usage based on Project type

            Currently codealike does not detect if you are working in a XNA project.
            I personally think it could be cool if that was detected, so instead of only saying "C#", it would say "C# / XNA".

            • Export Coding hours and Code Tree

              I use the data from codealike to show my programmers how effective they are.

              Every month I have to log into each of their code trees to show them the top projects they worked on and their total coding hours. This takes a lot of time.

              I signed up as a premium user to get some exporting features but I still need to log into each person and export the file manually.

              Looking for solutions to be able to export this data for everyone at once or the ability to pull this data via API so I can get to…

                  • Community Activity Meter

                    Would love to see community stats displayed. Like an "On-Fire-Meter" but showing how many people are on fire for that day, how much coding time has been recorded for the community as a whole and the number of active coders tracked in the day (community size) would rock as well.......

                    Thanks
                    Jeff

                    • Tracking Other Development Activities

                      Would love to have the ability to also tack activities in SQL Management Studio (or track that type of activity through VS).

                      Also would love to have you describe what my idle time activities look like (without the in depth of detail found in activity within VS).

                      Thanks

                        • Idle Time Tracking

                          How much time did visual studio sit open/idle? i.e. is a developer trying to game the system by just running vs?

                                  • Filter by PC (Revisited)

                                    Would like to be able to filter activity by machine as date, team, and solution. I am looking for away to discern variances in efficiency between office and home. I see that this has been posted as complete but so I may have just failed to figure out where or how to utilize the feature?

                                    PS: It's nice to have you guys back. Thanks for the hard work and effort.

                                    • Anonymous averages for use of managers

                                      If project managers could view the anonymous averages across all developers in a team that would help them to make decisions and individuals would be more to participate fairly and honestly if their results remained anonymous to their team leads.

                                        I know your planning report exports and printing, but untill then a simple XLS/CSV export file would be nice.

                                          This is cool don't get me wrong this is an awesome idea! Personally though I don't see why I need to navigate outside of visual studio to see the results. I guess I could just open a browser tab but I think it would be nice to just have a tab that showed results
