Timestamp doesn't affect connection visibility, it only shows if/when the 
connection was used last.

You don't see it in nm-applet, because the items nm-applet shows are visible 
SSIDs. As your network is hidden, it won't be shown until you connect.

You should see the configured connection profile in nm-connection-editor, 
though. "Last Used" column represent timestamp.
