How to display the date and time of access to a confluence page?

I imagine that this would be a common and easy question.  But I cannot find a straight answer anywhere in the web (that including confluence knowledge base).   I just need to find a way to display the current date (at a minimum) and the current time at the moment the page is loaded for viewing.   It is not a requirement to be refreshing all the time.   Just at the moment of access.   I am not an confluence admin, only admin my organizations' space.  So the solution should be at that level. 


Thank you.


I think you should be able to write a "user macro" that simply displays "now date and time" when it is rendered.  It'll be accurate to a few seconds and stay displayed until the next refresh.

I suspect you found nothing about this because no-one really cares when they open a web page.  I visit hundreds of pages a day nowadays, and would have a very long internet history if I didn't clear it (dating back a while before we even had browsers), and I've never had a need to think about when I opened any of them.

I agree with @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ . 

A good option would be a user macro, but since you are not the confluence administrator, you won't have access to write a user macro.

Perhaps you can contact your confluence administrator and suggest him to write a user macro for you.

Some of my customers care. 

If the page is a source of a report that the like to have in their hands (shock, some still like paper!)  y it is useful to know when it was generated.  Specially, if your page refreshes based on Jira macros (that looks at Jira issue fields that can change).

So to that effect, is there a way a pdf export date / time can be inserted in the page?
