Hi folks,

currently when I schedule an item, I can enter for example '+3' for 3 days from
now or '14:00+3' for '14:00-17:00'. It would be nice if I could either specify
fractions, eg '14:00+0.5' for '14:00-14:30' or a unit '14:00+30m' or '+4w' for 4
weeks.

What do you think of this feature request?

Love

Tim

I’m not sure about your +0.5, as given +1 is a day I’d guess this to be half a
day. On the other hand, unit-ed versions like +30m seem pretty reasonable to me.
There was a discussion about making times like “2h” and “2h30” work in
org-time-stamp, I’m not sure, but there may be some overlap in functionality
that could be exploited.

All the best,
Timothy
