  1. Please allow the attachment and document to a project (like a spec) and then a Windows app/service/Office addin

    Please allow the attachment of a document to a project (like a spec) and then a Windows app/service/Office addin to monitor time spent in the document (actively hopefully but unless this is an add-in, this is tough but can be done through native code.

    This would enable users to include all of their work to the project that is non-coding.

    Thank you !

  2. Add team members who aren't yet Codealike members

    As a team owner, I should be able to add team members who are not yet Codealike members. They can register with Codealike as part of the team invitation response process.

  3. 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 :)

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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. ;-)

  8. Written analisis of habits and activity notables.

    Would like to see a written (verbal) analysis of my habits.
    Example:
    You are most active 8:00-13:00.....You seem encounter the most interruptions between 13:00 and 14:00...... You have accumulated 20 hrs using SQL this year

  10. Integration with StatsWing

    Integration with StatsWing for analysis of raw data. You may be able to iframe specific views and analysis.. or at the very least, provide a direct export to StatsWing so people can analyze the data themselves.

    Also, using aggregate data from codealike you guys can use StatsWing to help find more relationships between the data poitns that you may not have thought of yet.

  12. No registration email, yet password recovery needs one

    Registration needs email, so it can be entered when you want to recover your password. Because at this point it is Catch-22.

  13. Eclipse CodeAlike Perspective

    A hole new codealike perspective for Eclipse. All the metrics inside the IDE, with nice graphics and fully integrated metrics with the project explorer. For example, I click on the StupidTest.java file and CodeAlike visualized all the metrics relevant for that file. Another great idea is not wasting time / money with MacOS X users and XCode / Sublime / IntelliJ / other minorated environments. Spend that time / efforts improving the plugin for Eclipse / Visual Studio.

  16. 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.

  17. 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

  18. Label .glsl files in the facts view as OpenGL Shaders

    While I may be one of the only person doing game development in Java with Codealike installed, I would like to see an appropriate label for .glsl files in the facts panel. Additionally, it is worth noting that it's not a formal standard by any means, and some people choose to use .vert and .frag for shader extensions.
