Date-stamping and time-stamping notes
You can date-stamp and time-stamp notes to record when they were written so that have a record of when you took the notes. Or, use the date- and time-stamping commands to insert the current date, time, or date and time in the middle of a note you’re writing.
Date-stamp and time-stamp a note
On the ribbon, click the Insert tab.
To insert the current date, in the Time Stamp group, click Date or press Alt+Shift+D.
To insert the current time, click Time or press Alt+Shift+T.
To insert the current date and time, click Date & Time or press Alt+Shift+F.
