We’ll be using a clock downloaded from Flash-Clocks in this example, but feel free to browse around and find a website you like, as the basic premise for making this work is the same.
Date and time stamps may just be one of the most underrated things in a document.
We tend to overlook when a letter or statement was written and pay more close attention to when it was sent.
Select the one you like best to use in your presentation.
In this example, we’ll use the third option from the bottom, which shows the hour, minute, and second on a 24-hour clock.
The time and date that appears is the same as your system’s clock, so make sure it’s set correctly.
As we said earlier, several different websites provide flash-based clocks that you can use for your presentation.
Once you’re there, you’ll find a large gallery of different clocks to choose from, ranging from analog to digital, and even antique. Once you find one, click the “HTML Tag Code” link found above the clock. Highlight and copy everything from through .swf, as shown in the image below.
Head over to the address bar, paste the code, and then press “Enter.” If you’re using Chrome, you’ll receive a message telling you that this type of file can harm your computer.
This method isn’t a live method and only updates the time/date once you switch slides during the presentation.
It’s mostly handy if you want to keep an eye on the time.
I would like it to update when the slide changes, not when it is only viewed/printed.
