Create meetings in Google Calendar that start later, rather than end earlier.

We've all been there: a calendar full of nonstop back-to-back meetings that don't allow you to use the restroom, grab some water, or just mentally reset. Google's legacy Speedy Meetings feature tries to help, but in reality, everyone blows past those :25 or :50 meeting end times. It's just human nature. What if meetings started 5 minutes later instead? You're guaranteed a quick break between meetings to stretch, get coffee, and prepare for the next one. Your future self – and your meeting attendees – will thank you. That's exactly what this extension does. Set your preferred start time buffer once, then enjoy creating Google Calendar meetings that start a few minutes later by default. If you currently use Google Calendar's legacy Speedy Meetings feature, this extension supports that, too – so you'll be able to give yourself some time before and after your meetings.

Great idea and would be super helpful, but does not appear to work. Tried changing the time and checking/unchecking the box, and just doesn't seem to transform meetings when you make them on the calendar.

Well, it seems the 45min meeting does not work as it transform itself into a 0min meeting. Otherwise, pretty good.

Huge time-saver over having to do this manually. Starting my meetings 5 minutes later makes my day run much better.
