Tracking and Reports: Completion time estimation
Add the ability to estimate the amount of time each task will take to complete.
This is very good suggestion..
Especially in to do list apps the biggest drawback is we can't asesss time taken to do all the task mentioned in a day and this option will help to ***** total time available and te taken to do all the activities available in a day..
This is real help..

I would love a feature like this. Don't want to bloat my google calendar with events
Thanks for sharing this idea. I extended further on this idea & suggested this feature - https://anydo.uservoice.com/forums/143587-general/suggestions/44946961-product-task-dependencies-with-duration-gantt-d

It is a very productive idea. May I know why any.do is unable to implement it?
this is an awesome idea
There shoud be some default time-tags related: (5 min, 10 min, 1 hour). Therfore when you add a tag to a task, the calendar should block that amount of time after the time scheduled for the reminder.
Conecting this to a countdown or to the promodoro functionality it would be awesome
Each Task has should have an option to mention task duration... And secondly Auto total of today task duration has to be mentoned..
Call A - 5 min
Task B - 60 min
Task C - 90 min
Total - 135 min. ( Auto calculate)
By this activity, i can identify if i have 3 hours ( 180 min) available with me today.. so that i can accomodate this 135 min easily
I would really like a project tracking feature.
As a freelance visual artist, it’s important for me to keep track of how much time I spend on a specific project.
It would be great to have this as a sub list with a timer function in the specific list. Something similar with the focus mode and the time tracker that I see suggested here, with a timer and the option to keep the time you actually spent.
Project: Illustration project 1
Mon: 30 min
Tue: 120 min
Fri: 90 min
So at the end of the project I can easy calculate how much time I spent on this particular project. Partly to be able to price it correctly and partly to know so when I want to schedule next project I can time estimate better because I know exactly how long the last project actually took.
Time tracker apps that already exist (didn't try them, just searched on app-store):
Daily simple time tracker
Toggl track hours and time
Would be amazing to have all in any.do!
Yes this would be so useful. Asana/Click Up call this "time estimate". On asana when you select multiple tasks it displays at the bottoms the total time estimate for those tasks - it would be so useful! I am always too ambitious with my days, so it would help me realise what I've planned is not achievable. It also focuses my mind - so that if I've set a time estimate of 15 mins then I will really focus on achieving it.
If deployed in a similar way to Asana, I think it could be done without changing the approach to the UI too much.
This is also similar to another post that has over 700 votes
This option will support to plan tasks to be done depending on time I have available.
Wow. This was first suggested 3 years ago in 2016. That's disappointing. Just downloaded this app and really like it but not having a simple field for completion time might be a dealbreaker. Seems like an easy feature to add and would help not having to think about it every time I open the app. Odd that you can plan your calendar but can't allocate time to a task.
Eat the frog principle.. Prioritize which is ugliest frog based on its estimated time and eat it first.
Please add feature to assign estimated time of completion
Make estimates for tasks could contribute to productivity. And you can more clearly planning your day according to your estimation times. It’s very important part of your efficiency.
