  1. Yearly Ranking (Who's #1 For the Year)

    Please add a "This Year" ranking to add a second dimension to the stat.

  3. Use Gmail/Google+

    Using gmail would be much more convenient than anything else. Some of my team members have refused to sign up for this because of the privacy concerns with using facebook. I really like the metrics i can see, but the privacy concerns keep coming up.

  4. Create a dashboard page that compares network averages

    I'd be interested to see my averages for a project by Lang (for example C#, Razor, and JS) and mode (Coding/Debugging) then compares it to other projects. My projects as well as the Codealike network. I'd be interested in seeing how my development stats compare to other developers on similar projects of comparable size.

  5. implement real-time collaberation

    I saw a FAQ entry explaining that it was "planned". I think this is a more important feature than you realize. A real-time collaboration system that plays nice with source-control.

  6. Define productive websites

    You should have "productivity" websites(stackoverflow, msdn.com, github.com, etc.), so when I browse them, you will still count it as productive time, so the red/green circle won't go away and I will be closer to being on fire.
    A better solution would be to let the user define the websites. For example, maybe I'm working on Facebook and I'm testing the website :)

  7. Make the API more available

    Make your API more available. I would like to implement in my Windows Phone app the possibility to see how much time you have until you're on fire. For this I would need an API endpoint which I can make GET requests every minute or so and display the results to the user.

    We dont have many endpoints, but there is no reason why we cannot implement them.

    For apps developer: If you need a particular data endpoint, just tell us about it and we will work with you to make it happen.

  8. Make login pop-up window not "always on top"

    When I open a solution in Visual Studio and Codealike is still not logged in, it opens the login screen, which is set up to be top-most ("always on top" of other windows). Since I manage my passwords in another application, I need to switch between windows to retrieve the password; but, more than that, I NEED to remember that Codealike will be top-most and get the password BEFORE clicking "Sign in", because:

    - When I click "Sign in", it opens ANOTHER top-most modal window, which is the only one I can move away now, and it doesn't help so…

  9. Expose an API

    An API that would allow dev leads to develop custom logic based on some of the data/triggers you're already tracking. For example, I'd love to show a tooltip type of popup for the user who is looking at a method that uses MailMessage class to let them know the list of relevant issues in our issue management system that they should look at before rolling out their own emailer service.... If it is an API hosted on your servers (as opposed to a locally-hosted api that runs with visual studio), then we could also do a million things by integrating…

  10. Allow more fine-grained control of web monitoring

    Currently it's possible to make the Chrome plugin send usage data only when explicitly asked to, and I can clear the local data before my development session, so I can keep the context to actual development time.

    However, it would be more useful to allow me to remove specific sites before sending data, so it becomes less of an all-or-nothing issue.

    Additionally, the Chrome plugin should have a non-monitoring mode, ideally indicated by graying out its icon. Hell, I'd be willing to take a stab at implementing this myself, once there's an official API. ;-)

  11. Add Testing to Activities

    The Activity statistics show the time spend Coding / Debugging / Building.

    It would be really interesting to know which time from Coding is spent writing Tests. During a TDD session I could measure how much of my time is spend on productive code and how much on writing test.

    I could think of different ways to implement this. One way would require knowlede about the TestFramework itself. For instance a Microsoft test is decorated with a [TestClass] attribut.
    Another way would be to have a convention that every project that is named "Projectname.Tests" would be treated as a Test…

    This feature is already in the backlog. The priority is “new feature”. Stability and performance always take precedence against “new feature” but we are certainly investigating how to accomplish that in a way that support both Visual Studio and Eclipse with the many test frameworks out there.

  12. Add category for Profiling and Unittesting

  13. Investigate issues with identifying active files in the current solution.

    All of my coding sessions show that I am using zero files, and my debugging sessions seem to only log files external to my solution, such as C++ standard library header files. I think this may be an issue handling files which are not in the solution's root directory. All of my files are in <project-root>/src/, instead of just <project-root>/. There are also nested sub-directories in /src/ which could be aggravating the problem.
