start date - due date - calendar - task/event

Hi, I push "next action" tasks into the future by assigning a "start date". This is very convenient for me in the "Toodledo environment". However, when I use sync to Google calendar, it seems that the task is interpreted as an event.

A full day event is created if the task has a strata date. It is more problematic if start date is used together with due date (and or length) - a tasks may enter your calendar as a very long event.

The solution is to avoid using start AND due date for a task. Or do you have another solution to this issue?

My wish would be that the Toodledo developers offer the following option:

i) only sync due dates (default)
ii) sync all dates as it is today (optionally).

Or perhaps someone of you smart guys have another convenient solution...;)

This is the primary way in which a to-do list is not like a calendar and is one of the limitations of syncing a to-do list with a calendar. If you sync with a calendar, then I recommend that you only use dates for hard dates, events and appointments. Tasks that do not have a specific hard date should be left dateless and you can then use priority/status filters to hide tasks that you want to push off.
