  1. 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.

      • 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.

        • XLS/CSV Data Exports

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

          • 2 major issues

            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

            • 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.

                  Thanks for your suggestions. Would you let us know why you would need to reset counters? What would you like to achieve by doing that?

                  Thanks!

                  • Create a page describing the tracked technologies.

                    For example I've recently done some work on my database, via the IDE recently, but I don't see any metrics related to the sql dev. I guess that comes under other? I'm just wondering what type of development topics are specifically tracked, aside from what I am already of.

                    I do like the resulting data grid, I'll even share mine, http://codealike.com/facts/8643 but you need to scale it a bit easier for shorter screens. I have to zoom out of the page to see the box titles for the first data block.

                    • Create a page of tips that can improve preformance

                      When enabled it dramatically impacts performance in either large projects or specific technologies. I'm quite interested in seeing the end results of the data for the project I am working on, so I'll trudge on ahead for now. However, if there is anything I could do to boost the performance/responsiveness, I'd love to know. With the impact as is, I'd be hesitant to track other projects with it.

                      • 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.

                          • Implement time tracking

                            For certain projects/tasks we need to report time spent to our clients. It would be great if codealike could track time spent on tasks.

                              Once I register to codealike, I need to edit my account settings with an email that then I need to verify throught my email client. After this, I'm able to participate in a codealike team.

                              • 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.
