I would like to set a default time unit for my tasks.  How can this be set?  There are too many mouse clicks to create a task.

Thank you, but that's not what I'm looking for.  For example, I want all of my durations to default to hours.  Want minutes to be the default, so I don't have to select it each time, merely type the value.

Hello Greg, 

Thanks for posting your question. It is not currently possible to set default duration units for task info. 

One workaround is to select multiple topics and then change the duration units using the task pane. Note: this will overwrite existing task information on the selected topics. 

Best, 
-Marian

Hi Greg,
Maybe you can show us some images or video about what you want?

I am pretty confused with your response to Jörg:
"For example, I want all of my durations to default to hours.  Want minutes to be the default, so I don't have to select it each time, merely type the value.

NOW.... Do you want the default to be hours or do you want it to be minutes?
