Length of time on task


If a task, for example, will only take 15 minutes, can you specify/adjust length of time? for a task?

Hi Martin,

We do not have any durations of tasks at this time, but we will consider adding such options in the future. Feel free to add this to our Votebox or vote on this one, this is a combination of Start & End dates. http://todoist.com/Vote/show/6505/

HI I see votebox is closed, I too would like to be anble to specify a time for a task to help see at a glance how much I am trying to fit in a day.
I used to use a PIM called above&beyond which was great for this and also had dynamic rescheduling but its not cross platform which I now can't image living without

Yes, this is exactly what I was looking for!

Todoist rocks! But being able to see how much we're trying to fit in a day is a must for the highly eager.

Will you please consider this functionality soon?

This is a really common request. See this thread for a lot more folks asking about it (and a 3rd party plug in that adds the functionality): http://todoist.com/Support/show/28987/#comment_179938
