Calendar default time slot is 1 hr. This clutters the Calendar can this be reduced to 30 min?

Present feature of subscribing to a iCalendar Feed only 'dumps' the tasks on to the calendar with a fix duration of 1 hour (if it has either a reminder or a time schedule). Tasks are of two types, generally. First those which you 'get done' are mostly just reminders and Second 'you do it' which consume 'your time'. Whether I schedule a task at 3 pm or set a reminder for that task at 3 pm, both get dumped to my calendar with a time slot of 1 hr. This clutters the calendar and a important feature cannot be used effectively. I suggest following.

1. Those tasks which are just reminders (for example - did kids go to school? Reminder at 7:30 am) should either not appear on the calendar or should be displayed in a way it does not clutter the timeline of the calendar.

2. Those task which need to be done and consume time (for example - Prepare XYZ Agreement Draft between 9:30 am to 11:00 am) should be displayed in the Calendar blocking time line from 9:30 am to 11:00 am. At present every task blocks 1 hr time line.

Hi Mohamed,

As mentioned on another thread, changing the appointment duration is not possible right now. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I would +1 this. 30 mins would be ideal and fit with the pomodoro model you encourage!
