Additional Information:

  • The "Service Type" option will only appear when the Trigger chosen has a deadline calculation dependent on the service type.
  • For more in-depth information on how the service type option affects event dates, email CalendarRules at


The "Service Type" setting indicates how items that must be served will be delivered. Court Rules will adjust the deadline for events which are dependant on this in accordance with the rules of the jurisdiction that was selected (ie 3 extra days if "Regular Mail" is selected).

The description of the event will be updated to indicate any additional days that have been added to the deadline, and why they have been added.
