Hello Sarah,

unfortunately, it's not possible to set task duration times in Todoist right now, but we will consider adding such feature in the future. You're welcome to vote for this request in our Votebox: http://todoist.com/Vote/showProposal/259/

For now, as a workaround, you could use labels to mark how much time you want or can spend on a task. If you type @10min within the task name, it will have a label named "10min" in front of the task and you can even display all tasks with this label if you click on it.

Aside from this, you can add single times within due dates so, for example, instead of setting a task to "today", you can type: "today at 1pm" and even add an email or SMS reminder some time before the deadline.

Best regards,
