End meetings early for Outlook for Mac
As described on this page, please add the ability to end meetings early for parity on the Windows version of Office 365 the way it's described below.
Especially during these times of this pandemic, having a built in mechanism to allow for time after meetings to check on family and prepare for next tasks.
End meetings early
If you're using Outlook for Microsoft 365, you can now have Outlook end your meetings a few minutes early. This can help you build in travel time between meetings. You can choose a different duration for meetings under one hour and meetings over one hour.
Select File > Options > Calendar > Calendar options
Check the End appointments and meetings early checkbox.
Calendar options dialog box with End appointments and meetings early check box selected
Use the drop-downs to select the number of minutes for meetings less than one hour and one hour or longer, then click OK.

Outlook should always have parity between Operating systems. Outlook is a communication tool. Adding value to every user increases value for all users
this is very urgent necessary to implement in the mac version! every modern company has a lot of meetings, for planning including break times are a must. not to have this feature, makes the app not usable.
I thought the new Outlook for Mac was supposed to bring more feature parity, not less?
Please implement this for all!
An increasing number of companies are now implementing this for all internal meetings, unfortunately this causes significant pain for mac users. Please add this functionality to the Mac experience otherwise you will increase frustration with a significant number of Outlook users
+1 to all of the below - this is crucially important for people's wellbeing when working through Covid and will be very well received by many companies as this becomes common practice.
Please consider adding this as it will take the strain of everyone working remotely. As we all know, adding breaks in between meetings makes lots of sense.
If it's good for PC users, it's good for Mac users too!
Without a doubt, please do this. It's such a time saver!

Here's how you could recover important deleted emails in outlook https://spinbackup.com/blog/deleted-important-outlook-email-here-is-how-to-recover-it/. I think that this information is important for everyone.

There is a great feature in Windows that allows for Outlook meetings to end 5 or 10 minutes early, but this is not available for Mac OS. Please add this great feature!
I'm a business customer and I'd really appreciate this feature
Can you please add the ability to start a meeting late or end it early to the desktop mac functionality? I made the change in outlook 360 but it doesn't show up in my desktop outlook on my mac. This has become a routine thing for scheduling meetings. Thank you.

Add the ability to end appts./meetings early like on the PC version.

Ending meetings early has just become company policy at my enterprise, due to remote work and too many back to back meetings. This will impact a lot of Mac users and we have no way to easily comply.
I would like the "End appointments and meetings early" feature to be introduced to Outlook for Mac
This idea have been on the table in UserVoice since july 2017 at the moment you find 61 Votes on that idea. https://outlook.uservoice.com/forums/293343-outlook-for-mac/suggestions/20041102-support-smart-meetings-end-5-10-mins-early
But you are absolotly right this is implemented in Windows Outlook but still missed in Mac Outlook and OWA, probably also in Mobile Outlook.
But please let us put up our votes in one of the ideas so the numbers for the same type of idea comes together!
