Notification at the end of a calendar event
Sometimes, I would want my calendar app to notify me that the duration of a current calendar event has ended so that I can move on to handle other matters. That may be done by adding an option at the timing of notification.
It would be an awesome and unique feature (I don't know any calendar platform that supports this) if notifications could be set to go off for the END of an event. Use case: I have meetings I want to end on time, and it would be great if my calendar, which knows my schedule, would give me a little chime five minutes before the end time of the meeting, to let me know to wrap it up.
Right now, my kludge is to schedule a second event after the real event labeled "done" with the wrap-up alert. This is tedious additional data entry, as I typically have about a dozen meetings a week.
The easy way to implement this would be to allow notifications to be set with negative values of minutes in advance. For instance, if I could set a notification for "-55 minutes before" the start of an event, that would be just the thing.
Alternatively, the option to set notifications for the end of an event, and thus have two different sets of notifications, would also be fine, though it would be more work to implement, involving rather more change to the UI.

Calendar should allow notifications once the event has passed, like it is available in the Mac Calendar. Sometimes we are overwhelmed and we can see the notification that we need to do something, but are too busy to do it just at that moment. I would like the calendar to remind me again 15 minutes, 1 hour, 1 day, etc., past event expiration to make sure that I didn't miss whatever the event was.
