General

To create an event prefix the text with event. Or if there is no prefix an event will be created.

To create a task prefix the text with task or todo.

Examples
Trip to Finland
event Important meeting
task Buy mom a birthday gift
todo Clean the house

Start/due date

If the event doesn't define any date it is created on today. The date can have on prefix which will be removed from the text. For weekdays the event is always created on the next weekday (i.e. you cannot create events on past this way). If '/' is used as the date separator the order is month/day(/year) otherwise it is day.month(.year).

Examples
today Establish the planning committee
First meeting tomorrow
Second meeting on Monday
Wednesday Last meeting
thu Order the supplies
31.3.2009 Set up the prank
4/1 April Fools' Day
Call mom on 30-12-2009 and explain that everything was just a prank.

Start/due time

The time can have at prefix which will be removed from the text. If the time has at prefix you don't have to define the minutes. If you don't specify the am or pm postfix the time is interpret as 24h.

Examples
Alien abduction at 5
Pre-probing briefing 6:00
18:30 Scheduled for probing 
Feedback from the probing at 10 pm
Return back to home 11:00 pm

Time ranges

The time format is the same as above (except without the at prefix). You can use from as prefix for the range.

Examples

Lunch break 11:00-15:20
Do some actual work from 15:20 to 15:30
