End meetings early (25m / 50m)
Add support to end appointments & meetings early (25m / 50m) so you have time to prepare for the next meeting. Already supported by Outlook for Windows: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/schedule-a-meeting-with-other-people-5c9877bc-ab91-4a7c-99fb-b0b68d7ea94f
If you set this preference in Outlook on the Web, then Outlook for Mac will respect it! Please ensure you are on the Feb release of Outlook for Mac (18.104.22.168)
We also respect the setting to start meetings late.
The ability to set this inside of Outlook for Mac will come soon.

This is available in the Beta version of new Outlook.

This is really a must-have, since the setting is available on Windows and the web. It becomes a real issue that we can't communicate coherently to our users how they can use this functionality, as we have abt 30% of our user base on Macs...
Ooh, this is not just a useful feature for users, but a contribution to society! If you could cut 5 minutes off every meeting just imagine how much better off office life would be. Natural discourse does not only occur in 30-minute increments.
I also need it very important

We need this option for our organisations too.
By default, meetings can be scheduled for 30min/60min, but in the outlook for windows, there are options for early finishing meetings by 5min for 30min meetings and 10min early for 1hr meetings. this is a great feature to give the organization a healthy lifestyle and not being busy back-to-back meetings. Our whole organization like to introduce this feature but we weren't able to move further because most of the people in our org are using mac. kindly consider this feature to mac as well.
It will be interesting to see how this gets implemented, because you know the next request will be to add it to OWA. It would be great if this was an org-wide server side rule, rather than a setting change by GPO as it is on the Windows side.
