Ending your meetings early in Outlook

In the latest version of the Outlook client, there’s a feature that allows you to set the default for meetings to end five or ten minutes early to give you time to get to your next meeting. Here’s how that works…

In Outlook Options > Calendar, scroll to the Calendar Options section. There, you can select the option to End Appointments and Meetings Early, and set how early you want to end them:

Now when you schedule a meeting or appointment, the end time will be adjusted to stop early so that you can make your next meeting:

This is a nice feature that adapts to the reality of our organizational lives. It gives you travel or “regroup” time before your next meeting, and it shows respect to the people who are part of that next meeting when you don’t continually show up late.
