Can't add planned hours for a task

I just installed odoo 8.0, and am creating a project to manage. There is no place to enter planned time, nor to record time spent in my Tasks window.  How do I fix this?

I'm guessing I either missed a module, or one of the module installs failed.  The following modules have been installed (some as dependencies of others):

CRM (Leads, Opportunities, Phone Calls)

Social Network (Discussions, Mailing Lists, News)

Online Billing (Send Invoices and Track Payments)

Project Management (Projects, Tasks)

Accounting and Finance (Financial and Analytic Accounting)

Survey (Create surveys, collect answers and print statistics)

Sales Management (Quotations, Sales Orders, Invoicing)

Warehouse Management (Inventory, Logistic, Storage)

Instant Messaging (OpenERP Chat)

MRP (Manufacturing Orders, Bill of Materials, Routing)

Purchase Management (Purchase Orders, Receipts, Supplier Invoices)

Employee Directory (Jobs, Departments, Employees Details)

Timesheets (Timesheets, Attendances, Activities)

Recruitment Process (Jobs, Recruitment, Applications, Job Interviews, Surveys)

Leave Management (Holidays, Allocation and Leave Requests)

Expense Tracker (Expenses Validation, Invoicing)

Employee Appraisals (Peridical Evaluations, Appraisals, Surveys)

Calendar (Personal & Shared Calendar)

I added accounting and finance privileges, triggering a odoo to automatically add a number of applications.  Now the planned hours entry box shows.

These data entry boxes became available when I added Accounting and Finance privileges.
