There should be an additional field in the calendar forms where you could add the time needed to get to a meeting.
i.e. the meeting starts at 2 PM but you need to get out of the office at 1 PM in order to be at the customer site on time. It should also be reflected in the calendar view so that anyone checking the calendar is aware that someone is travelling or at the meeting itself. Additionally it should be linked to resource reservation.
Since this item has been mentioned at the LS 09 "Ask the developers" session I'm "re-posting"  my idea.

Nice idea!

Agreed. I spend double time for each new appointment or meeting created, as after the event, I then create a second entry to block-out travel time preceding the calendar entry, to keep me from arriving late due to back-to-back event scheduling. It's becoming arduous and irksome to handle the increased management.

The fun increases with rescheduling of these event types, as you have to move and respond to both dialog boxes for the event first, then the travel time event. Try adding repeating meetings or appointments with combined travel time entries for each and it gets joy-filled in a hurry. :)

Idea enhancement: I would like to have the travel time label and value appear in the calendar view event hover pop-up as well.
