Improve how all day tasks are handled (ie not 1440 minutes)

Currently, the way Amplenote considers a task as an all-day task is when a task begins at 00:00 and duration is set to 1440 minutes.

However, this way of defining an all-day task is logical and illogical at the same time. An all-day task can be used this way (meaning you might have a task that will last 1440 minutes), but it also can be used as a reminder that a task should be done "at some time" today.

So, I recommend, removing the "duration = 1440 minutes" requirement for an all-day task. Instead, if a task does have its date field "filled" but the time field "left empty" is considered as an all-day task. This is how all the other task management platforms handle their all day tasks (Todoist, TickTick, Notion, Outlook, Clickup etc)

By doing it this way, I can still define an all-day task, but then have a duration set for X minutes. So that when I am planning my day, I can drag and drop my task into the calendar and the X minute slot will automatically be created.
