I see other people printing our project's Gantt chart with an up-to-the-date date on the bottom.

How do they to do that? Is it automatic or must one do something every time one prints the chart?

  • @tiagoperes Please stop suggesting for the ms-project tag to be added. Please read the description of the tag - it should not be combined with the ms-project-2013 tag.

  • @Sarov In this specific case the solution is not version specific. Jan 8, 2019 at 20:19
  • @tiagoperes If that's true then the version-specific tag should be replaced by the version-agnostic one; the Question should not contain both.

  • @Sarov that's your opinion. Already had that discussion with moderators from this community and we agreed it's acceptable with both. Not for this particular case but generally speaking. Jan 8, 2019 at 20:49
  • @tiagoperes Can you provide a link?

From here:

In the File tab, click Print, then click Page Setup.

On the Header, Footer, or Legend tab, click the Left, Center, or Right tab.

Now choose the date icon and the field will auto-fill and update when you print.
