Why Due Date in Event/Activities is behaving like a Date field?

Knowledge Article Number 000212926
Description Activity date field Date/Time Field but labeled as Due Date

User-added image
Resolution Due Date field is always defaulted to a date/time field with 12 AM time stamp

The reason for this is:
  • Tasks do not have a start time as compared to an event
  • Task is more comparable to an item in the To Do List
  • Whereas an Event has definite time frame and hence there are start time and end time associated to an event
There is an idea posted on the same

As a workaround system administrator can create a custom field with data type as date/time.
