Outlook calendar - task length


How can I adjust the length of a ToDoist task on my calendar? In the web app, if I set a task to be due "tomorrow at 11am," there will be a 1-hour appointment on my ToDoist calendar in Outlook. Many of the tasks I need to set times for are reminders, etc, so I would like to be able to set a task to be due, for example, "every weekday at 1pm for 15 minutes." I don't know if this is impossible, or if it is possible but I just can't figure out the correct syntax.
Thank you!

Hello Jade,

That's unfortunately not possible. The iCal format we use assumes each event to be scheduled "for the hour" it's been set to.

We're working on our own calendar module within Todoist which should solve this issue.

When do expect your calendar module to be ready? That's a key feature I've been waiting for.

Hello Mike,

Unfortunately, we can't give you any estimated timeframe. There will be many great features and changes coming to Todoist this year, but it's hard to tell when exactly will the calendar module be added.

Best regards,

Hello Steve,

Unfortunately, there are no updates on this for now, but we may consider adding a duration option for tasks in the future.

Best regards,
