Start appointments and meetings delayed
Since Januar 2019 we have the calendar options to end an appointment early. It would be nice to also delay the start time by e.g. 5 minutes.

I have not seen ending appointment and meetings early working in practice. Usually the meetings continue until everyone actually absolutely needs to leave for the next meeting, no matter whether the meeting was set to end 5 or 10 minutes early.
While that is not the fault of Outlook but of the meeting chair for running the meeting poorly, having the ability to start late would make the life of the meeting chair easier, as the meeting won't be able to start properly unless all relevant people have arrived.
Un rendez-vous est fixé à une heure pour une durée précise. Il serait utile de pouvoir prévoir avant et après ce rendez-vous un temps nécessaire pour s'y rendre. Cela conserverait l'heure prévue de début et de fin en y ajoutant les temps de déplacement qui apparaitraient comme occupés dans le calendrier.

I came here intending to post the same thing. In my experience, meetings are more likely to run long than they are to end early plus humans prefer "even" deadlines.
In other words, a meeting scheduled 1:30-1:55pm is much more likely to end at 2pm or even a bit over. Conversely, for a meeting scheduled 1:35-2pm, there's no incentive to begin early since all participants won't be there...especially since their previous meeting is probably running over its planned 1:30pm ending.

Das wäre super, wenn der default start auf 5 Minuten Verzögerung gestellt werden könnte.
