How to insert a Date field in HP ALM Project Report template?

We are using HP ALM v11. I have created a template for generating project reports. I would like to include a date in the header that would be set dynamically to the current date at report generation time (so I have a record of when the report was generated). There is no date field to select during the template edit, so I typed in <<Date>>, but it was not recognized.

Our workaround is for the user to enter the date as a variable, just before generation time. However, this is time consuming and error prone.

Note: We don't want to have a MS Word date field in the template, because that kind of date is updated each time the document is opened in Word and does not reflect the generation date.

Please advise what should be entered to get the date (auto-updated) to show in the header of the report template and eventually in the project report. Your assistance is appreciated!

Re: How to insert a Date field in HP ALM Project Report template?

Hello Juneg,


Thank you for using HPE Forums.\


About your question this feature is not available, the only I can think off  is to create some type of Macro in the template that can retrieve the day and time of creation, if you like you can open a ticket in order to submit an Enhancement Request.


I hope the information helps you, if you have any question please let us know.
