is task duration available?


Can I insert the duration of tasks in order to make it appear in iCal? If not, may be it would be a useful feature to add... Especially if the issue of the Calendar view will be completed.

Hello Nikolay,

unfortunately, it's not possible to set a timespan for a task right now, but thank you for your suggestion, we appreciate it and will consider adding such feature in future development. You're welcome to vote for this request in our Votebox:

For now, you could try to use recurring tasks to set up a task which requires multiple repeats. If you use "every day" as a due date, for example, the task will appear daily your Calendar.

Best regards,

I have just publish a simple Chrome extension to implement some basic task duration management within Todoist.


It's certainly not perfect but I hope you like it. If people use it I will try to improve and extend its functionality.
