This is exactly how events / tasks are treated in IQ, in addition events have 3 “states” all-day, date-time (duration) and unscheduled, which have a date and a duration but no determined time (AFAIK, unique to IQ)

Another possibility, which I forgot in my previous post: Hitask.

The 2-way sync with GC is the only reason I (briefly) used Todoist. Other apps offer it but not in their free tier.

I ended up comfortably settling into using Google Calendar for ‘hard’ tasks that needed to be done at specific times, and everything else ended up unsynced to GC, living in task lists which might or might not have start/end dates. But if something has a definite start *time* I put it in Google Calendar. (And in order to clamorously remind me of calendar starts I’ll often add an alert in Dueapp/iOS, which has a choice of repeatable, repeating alarms.)
