Changing time duration for recurring task from Google calendar's default 1 hr

After I sync up my todoist tasks with google calendar, those recurring tasks that have a due hour show up. Tha'ts great, but what i think the default allocated block of time on my calendar is 1 hr. I know some of my recurring tasks don't last that long. Is there a way I can alter that? For example, "prepare breakfast" takes just 30 minutes, but i don't know how to adjust that to 30 minutes.

Hello Joseph,

Unfortunately, it's not possible to change this right now, but we may consider adding a duration option for tasks in the future which would then also apply to the calendar.

I've just set a whole lot of recurring tasks, but not all of them go for an hour, is there a way for me to change the default set time. I'm syncing todoist with ical on my mac air?
Thanks, R

As we said, right now there is no way to do this. Hopefully in future updates :)
