Inserting the Date and Time

You can insert the date and time into your presentation. For example, you might want today’s date to appear in a stock market quote. You can insert the date and time on every slide, notes page or handout, or only on a specific slide. To insert the date and time on every page, you place it in a placeholder on the slide master. To insert the date and time only on a specific page, you insert it in a text box on the slide you want. You can set the date and time to automatically update to your computer’s clock or stay fixed until you change it.
