Powerpoint 2013 - Footers with dates/times are NOT appearing in the footers

I get ready to print out my 20 slides and when I check the box for Date in the footer, it does NOT appear in the preview pane at all.
Slide numbers DO persist and I can turn them on and off by checking the box in Page set up.
But I can't get date and time to appear.  Even when I say "apply to all" NOTHING happens!

Do you have a date placeholder on the layouts?

You need both to have a placeholder (on the slide master and all appropriate layouts) and then to populate the placeholder (using Insert Header and Footer).

Welcome! Did you get what you need there? I figured you might come back with more questions because sometimes the placeholders don't populate the way they should. (But I didn't want to muddy everything if they worked right the first time!)
