Welcome to the HP Community.

 

The printer is unaware of what it is printing.

 

Printing the Date / Time on your document is a function of the software / application you are using to submit the job to the printer.

 

Both solutions included in this message assume you have installed the Full Feature Software / Full Driver printer software for your printer.

 

If you are printing from your Browser, the Header / Footer can be toggled (on / off) to provide additional information including the time / date.

 

For Example,

Browsers like Chrome and Firefox provide this information in the header / footer area.  In Chrome, at least, make sure you open "More settings" (after you click Print) - scroll down and enable the header / footer.  The setting is a toggle - switch it on / off to see the differences.

 

What else?

If you want to do so,

Add this - and / or other similar - field(s) to Word documents.

 

For example,

Open your Word document

Click open the footer area of the page to open the "Footer" (double click on the bottom of a page in the document)

Tab Insert 

Look on the right of the ribbon for the tiny "Quick Parts" icon

Click the little down-arrow > Select Field

On the right side of the menu, scroll down and select "PrintDate"

Select your format (how you want the date to appear) and add the field.

If you like, click just in front of the new field and add a bit of text, for example, "Print Date: "

 

The immediate result is a non-helpful collection of zeros and maybe x's placed in the footer.

 

The field contents are updated just before the document is sent to print (between the time you click to Print and the time the contents / document is printed onto paper).
