Allow reminder before END of appointment. Or allow a negative value for reminder offset.
I often need to be notified before END of some appointment or meeting. The current reminders are only allow to be notified before the appointment start.
- A driver needs to know about end of the meeting to arrange a car
- An attendand needs to be notified about some event end to help guests
Please allow reminders before END of appointment. Or allow a negative value for reminder offset to have ability to set them to raise for some time after the appointment start.
Options to implement:
Option 1: add a checkbox "notify before event and" that is unchecked by defauld
Option 2: (prefferable) add a second reminder about the event end
Option 3: allow a negative offset for the meeting reminder time
This would be awesome! I like option 1, and would like to be able to specify how much before the end i want to get notified (5 minutes before, 10 minutes before, etc.).

A great idea to stop more meeting over runs and free up the meeting room for the next meeting.
I agree. My company uses Google services for a lot of its operations. I have a Google calendar that I use to track how long (months) my employees are anticipated to be on certain projects. It would be helpful to have a reminder to tell me a few weeks from the end of their projects so that I can make sure I have something ready for them to do next. Of course, I am in contact with them on a regular basis, but people often forget to discuss all that is needed.

Certain appointments need an end of meeting reminder. A clue to wrap up and make follow up appointments, homework assignments. Would be nice to set this as desired when needed.
pls add an option to remind when appointment is ending
We use outlook calendar for reminding staff when to cover phone shifts on our support desk. It would be really helpful if it could also alert the user when their shift has ended.

I also think this is very important due to meeting room congestion, and meeting time overrun, in many organizations. So common to find a meeting still running when you go to use a meeting room you have booked so having a reminder to the organizer that the allotted meeting time is about to end will help meetings finish on-time and meeting rooms be vacated in time for the next meeting.
In normal life you don't have all time meeting just after the meeting. And reminder 15 minutes before second meeting does not mean reminder 15 minutes before end of first meeting :(
This will be good to have reminder 15 minutes before meeting and reminder 15 minutes before end of four hours long meeting or 15 minutes before end of study time.
Of course I can do this with new appointment (inform me about end of my appointment 15 minutes before end time) but this is not comfortable especially if you decide e.g. to extend meeting for half-hour.
In my opinion this is very useful functionality, especially for people who organize time and work alone and their tasks are so absorbed that they lose touch with time :)
Outlook is so advanced that it is almost know how to brew coffee. And can not remember the end of the task :(
Maybe someone knows the solution to this problem???
