After the extension installation, the merchant should initiate the process of data gathering by clicking the Collect Data button near the Collect all available data (in separate table) setting. Below this setting the timestamp appears that shows the the last time the data was collected.

When this is done, the merchant can Apply collected relations data to the products. This setting provide the timestamp as well.

If the merchants wish to automatically apply the relations data to the products, thy may enable the Cron Job. To make sure that CRON is working correctly, one can check the timestamp. If it doesn't change over the decent period of time, the merchant may need to configure CRON as described here.
