If you'd like to add the fields, you can use the Topic's Properties. It will not impact the other task features though (e.g. task roll-ups).

Hi, thank you so much for your answer, could you guide me how can I add that property to the tasks? so I can set start time as new property?

The the menu, look for the Advanced tab. Select it and there's a Properties command in the Topic Data group. You'll need to have the topic selected. When you hit the command, a dialog will open and there you can define the properties you'd like to add (e.g. Start Time, End Time, Cost, etc...). 

Once you've added the properties to a topic, you can copy them or drag and drop them onto other topics too.

FYI, as far as I know the start and end times are stored internally under certain conditions, but are not accessible through the UI. When MindManager schedules hourly-based tasks with the Gantt function, it stores both date and time. But if you try to write start or due times with an add-in, submitted values are discarded. An external time field, while useful in the UI, would be parallel to the calculated value and would not be used by the Topic Reminder feature.
