Default Using Date and Time (Timestamp) as a bullet

I am trying to set up Word to automatically use the current date and time as a bullet, so that each entry will automatically have a time stamp. It's to be used to record observations during experiments. Does anyone know if this is possible? I've searched but have not been able to find a good solution.

Hi Michael,

You might find that Word's 'track changes' tool achieves all you need (and more), as it also records the username of the person adding (or deleting) an entry.
