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

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.
