Thanks Manish for the response. I didn't realize I had to "schedule" it as well. Now it works...

Well, how else should the agenda know on which date the entry should be shown...

My (apparently flawed) reasoning was that, the feature was meant to provide a quick and dirty way to show tasks meant for "today" in the agenda view and would show up on today's agenda regardless of whether it was scheduled or not.

You do get this if you create a task like so:

******* TODO 1pm-14:30 another test task for Jose
               SCHEDULED: <2008-04-09 Wed>
               CREATED: [2008-04-09 Wed 12:30]
******* TODO test task for Jose 12:30-8:00pm
               SCHEDULED: <2008-04-09 Wed>
               CREATED: [2008-04-09 Wed 12:15]

And the agenda (with time grid turned on) looks like this:

Day-agenda (W15):
Wednesday   9 April 2008
                    8:00...... -------------------------
                    9:00...... -------------------------
                   10:00...... -------------------------
                   11:00...... -------------------------
                   12:00...... -------------------------
  braindump:       12:30-20:00 Scheduled:  TODO test task for Jose
                   13:00...... -------------------------
                   14:00...... -------------------------
  braindump:       13:00-14:30 Scheduled:  TODO another test task for Jose
                   15:00...... -------------------------
                   16:00...... -------------------------
                   17:00...... -------------------------
                   18:00...... -------------------------
                   19:00...... -------------------------
                   20:00...... -------------------------
                   21:00...... -------------------------
                   22:00...... ------------------------

This is in section 10.4.2 / page marked #70 or page 77 as reported by
PDF reader (at least in manual for Release 6.00pre-2).

I think you either have not added SCHEDULED (C-c C-s) or have not
turned the time grid on (`G' in agenda view).
