Hi Michael,

the key for this is to find a solution that enables you to inserts the current date on a confluence page or in the PDF Space Export Footer. But there is no ready-made solution!

There are different approaches with user macros, plugins, some javascript or a combination of this. At https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/86518/current-date-macro-in-confluence you find some ideas.


Do you mean that you wish to print the date in the footer of the pages in confluence? therefore if you export the page it is going to be in the PDF export as well.



Hi all,


is someone has solved this point ?

I need to add the current date and time to the footer of PDF exported page...




I'd need to achieve exactly the same thing so any help would be appreciated!
