Creating and Updating Deadlines

When you create deadlines, you create a table with two types of deadlines. The table has rows of deadline dates for the trigger events as well as deadlines for events associated with the trigger event.

Note: Tables and buttons aside from the Create Deadlines button will be hidden when viewing Deadlines on a matter for the first time.
