The manual (8.3 Deadlines and scheduling) states:

[...] special keywords to facilitate *planning*

DEADLINE
     Meaning: the task (most likely a TODO item, though not
     necessarily) is supposed to be finished on that *date*.

SCHEDULED
     Meaning: you are planning to start working on that task on the
     given *date*.


I think you should use a timestamp 

* Submit :Project_A_
DEADLINE <2008-10-11>
** last minute for submission 
<2008-10-11 16:59>

cheers
Giovanni

Yes, that's true. However, being able to do this in one timestamp
would seem to make a lot of sense. After all, this will show up in my
agenda as two apparently unrelated things. Besides, I should only have
to put the information in once, not twice.

Hi Cameron,

When I type something like C-c C-d wed 13:30 RET, the time is added to
the deadline. E.g.,

,----
| * TODO Todo
|   DEADLINE: <2009-04-08 Wed 13:30>
`----
 
I could also type "+1d 1:30pm" or one of the other alternatives.

If I type C-c C-d on an item that already has a deadline and no time, I
can simply type in a time and it will be added to the existing deadline.
E.g., if I have the following todo:

,----
| * TODO Todo
|   DEADLINE: <2009-04-14 Tue>
`----

I can type C-c C-d 7:00pm RET on the headline and I get:

,----
| * TODO Todo
|   DEADLINE: <2009-04-14 Tue 19:00>
`----

Hope this helps.

Matt

Huh. Once again I increase the noise to signal ratio on this list. As
I said in my first message I tried that and it didn't work. I was left
with a datestamp with no time attached.

I've since rebooted my machine (and consequently Emacs) and now it
works. Weird.

Again, sorry for the noise.

The prefix is used to remove the timestamps.

To add a time I just enter the time when you get the SCHEDULED or
DEADLINE date prompt.

eg. Date+time [2009-04-07]: mon 7pm

Lots of formats are supported.

Entering the time at the prompt works for me.

,----[ Example org file entering '7pm' and 'fri 11:30-13:30' ]
| * One
|   DEADLINE: <2009-04-07 Tue 19:00>
| * TODO Something
|   SCHEDULED: <2009-04-10 Fri 11:30-13:30>
`----

Hi folks,

I'm trying to get a little more control over my DEADLINE and SCHEDULED
timestamps. Specifically, I'd like to be able to add the time (not
just the date) when I hit C-c C-d or C-c C-s.

I tried adding the prefix, which is how you would do it when putting
in a plain timestamp (C-u C-c .) However, this combo deletes any
schedule or deadline property the note might have. 

If I use C-c C-d/s and try to type the time in at the prompt it is
ignored. However, I can manually add it to the timestamp afterwards
and everything works as expected.

Is there a way to automatically add the time? This would seem to be a
very natural thing to be able to do, especially for deadlines.
