Subject: Bug: specifying end time of date as +0:20 [9.4.4 (release_9.4.4 @ /usr/local/share/emacs/28.0.50/lisp/org/)]
Date: Sun, 09 May 2021 19:21:38 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <875yzr4vkd.fsf@cam.ac.uk> (raw)


I'm trying to understand the syntax (e.g. ‘11am+2:15’) for specifying
the end time of an event, from (info "(org)The date/time prompt")

It works okay if I do org-deadline with 11am+2:15

* test 3
DEADLINE: <2021-05-09 Sun 11:00-13:15>

but if I do 11pm+2:15 then it gets confused:

* test 4 
DEADLINE: <2021-05-09 Sun 23:00-25:15>

and when I next call the agenda, I get an error:

org-duration-to-minutes: Invalid duration format: "+1:15"

Also, I couldn't see any mention in the documentation of
org-agenda-default-appointment-duration -- is that worth mentioning in
the node, e.g. after ‘11am+2:15’      ⇒ same as above

"If you do not specify an end time, then you can provide a default
duration by setting org-agenda-default-appointment-duration."

Best wishes, Stephen
