    There is not currently a formatting option for time, but it is possible using a formula. Try something like this...

    =VALUE(LEFT([Time Column]@row, FIND(":", [Time Column]@row) - 1)) - IF(VALUE(LEFT([Time Column]@row, FIND(":", [Time Column]@row) - 1)) > 12, 12) + ":" + RIGHT([Time Column]@row, 2) + IF(VALUE(LEFT([Time Column]@row, FIND(":", [Time Column]@row) - 1)) >= 12, "p", "a")
