Insert date and time in the header or footer

Insert date and time in the header or footer

WPS Writer allows users to add various styles of header and footer, including text, pictures, and date and time. So how can we realize inserting date and time?

A footer has been added to this document. So here we take the header as an example to show how to insert dateand time. Get into the Header/Footer tab and click Date and Time to pop up the dialog.

On the left-hand side of the dialog, we can choose from different formats to present the date and time.

Check the Update automatically option at the bottom-right corner. In this way, when we open the document again, the inserted date and time will update automatically according to the system's time zone.

Finally, click OK to apply the settings.

No matter you are a student, teacher, or business professionals can create and edit documents efficiently by WPS Writer as text editors. Easy to use as Microsoft Word.
