That would be amazing
Ford Ford commented
This would be amazing, BUT please, if you are going to implement it with the same approach suggested by @RobC or @Emilio j (with are exatly what I have in mind) , please make the timeblocks scalable / reduceble to at least 5 min increments of time, else it would be useless for many. This is one of the reasons why I use EssentialPIM instead of Google Calendar. Organizng the day in blocks of 5 min (or even 1 min like VueMinder!) is way more efficient than with blocks of 30min or even worse, 1h. Thank you!

The iPhone version has the "My Events" view, which is very helpful. Would be great to see it on the desktop!
Yes a Calendar View if the only thing missing from this amazing application.
The best way to describe the feature is the way that Google Calendar can displays tasks and events on Day, Week, Month views. If the task has a due date then it will be shown on the view.
That is the most basic functionality that I require. Thanks

It would be awesome if we had something like hourstack, jsut drag and drop tasks into the day of the week you want to do them, and since there is already a field of duration in the tasks you could know how much time you have reserved each day with the tasks you have dropped in.

Please make task list in Calendar view for "Selected_day" very similar to this filter view:
StartDateTime on or before "Selected_day" AND DueDateTime on or after "Selected_day".
I think this will be the best way!

The Effexis software application is similar to MLO and it contains a great time block scheduling calendar function. This would be great inside of MLO.
Joel Fannin commented
Okay, so this has been under review since 2013? Andrey, are you really using Uservoice to collect ideas for features? If so, it would be nice of you to update it.
Murry: check out the Today view now available on MLO for Android or Apple but not yet for Windows
Any movement on this idea?
Thanks for the great new feature! I have a suggestion for an improvement in a future version:
Allow users to mark a task as an event

Calendar view and sync with Google calendar is the what i not found in MLO, after google integration MLO best software is ever!!! Good luck.
Have a calendar view or sync with Google calendar. A must!
I just checked back to see what's changed in the last 18 months or so :-)
I've had a great, relaxing weekend, camping, hanging out on the beach, and getting all these great ideas that I've put into my MLO inbox and promised myself that THIS time, I'll get them done! Now I just need to make that a fact... and I logged in to check whether there's any progress on making MLO a bit more helpful for me in that!
As always, the feature that I really miss from MLO is a calendar view. I DO see that the iPad v2 version proposes that there is one in development, with a tasks-per-day view. That looks great.... but... I still need more.
You see, there's two ways of thinking about the calendar view. I presume most people are talking about being able to see the tasks in MLO that have a date and time, in their calendar, so that they can plan around them. Now, that's very handy - but it only really works for tasks you create that have fixed dates and times.
For me, the problem is completing the tasks that DON'T have an assigned date/time. What I need a calendar view for, is to be able to drag-and-drop *un*-dated/timed tasks that are highest priority in my list, INTO my calendar - to take the tasks that otherwise lurk in the background with no assigned timeslot, and fix them with a solid date/time in my calendar so that I commit myself to work on them!
It not only helps me to commit, it also helps me avoid planning to "do that tonight", forgetting that I'd already planned to do some other task tonight. Ideally, it would even force me to cancel meetings and appointments, to make way for more important tasks that I would otherwise only put in the gaps between those meetings.
I recently found yet another new app that comes close-ish. I saw a review for Timeful on Lifehacker: (http://lifehacker.com/timeful-intelligently-arranges-tasks-and-events-on-your-1616073913). While it looks nowhere sophisticated enough to replace MLO (nor is on Windows, etc), it does do one thing that I want to do - allow me to drag-and-drop tasks into specific timeslots (see 00:30 in the video). It even autolearns and autoplans - again, something I can do without - but in its place, having MLO consider the place/context that I will be at (and is open) when it auto-schedules, would be great!
Ideally, I could sit in the MLO interface and see all my calendars (synced from Outlook, say) in a day/week view, along with my next tasks by priority on the side. I could then drag-drop the tasks into the gaps in my calendar - maybe allow a few tasks to be dropped into the same timeslot (eg. "I'm going shopping from 10-12 tomorrow, and I need to do these things - in this order" // "I should call Marcel at 9am tomorrow, and I have these 5 different things from different projects to discuss with him").
At present, the best case is that in the evening I will look at the next MLO tasks, then switch to Outlook and create appointments for those tasks, to ensure they're scheduled in. It comes to the same end, but it requires me to manually transpose everything from MLO into Outlook, which a lot of additional manual effort. It also clutters my schedule, and requires switching between tools a lot.
I guess another way of saying it, is that I'm looking for a Gantt chart auto-integrated with my existing Outlook schedule, in a Calendar View! It would just be nice to be able to do all of this management in one tool - MLO - in a quick and productive way!

Why under review.
Is not started????

Calendar view with drag and drop functionality, is a very much sought after feature. It will lift the value of your product among users. Please add it in the next release.
You may refer any of the readily available open source task mgt projects like Task Unifier, that already has this feature.
What is taking so long ?
At present , google calendar is the best free calendar. I strongly suggest that the new function should be able to sync to google calendar. one-way sync is enough.
I have a good idea about how the calender and tasks may appear but I can't explain it here,
it includes algorithm for how to view the "start/end date-time", and the "needed time" to complete the task.
Sync with Google Calendar/Tasks and Microsoft Outlook.com would be a great addition, and make this program real champ. Also an agenda view widget on Android (e.g., as Tasks+ has)
