[Oodo 9] currency_rate_update not working

I have installed the currency_rate_update module on my server.  I have set it up to run once a day with data from the ECB.  I have set CHF, CAD, USD as active and they are active under Accounting->Multiple Currencies.  

I can see in the logs that the module runs as scheduled:

2016-10-14 10:20:22,473 29184 INFO addhaptics_odoo9_test openerp.addons.currency_rate_update.model.currency_rate_update: Starting the currency rate update cron2016-10-14 10:20:22,474 29184 INFO addhaptics_odoo9_test openerp.addons.currency_rate_update.model.currency_rate_update: End of the currency rate update cron

But when I look at the exchange rates, they are still set to 1 under Accounting->Multiple Currencies->Currencies.  Have I missed something?

Ok, thanks for the tip!!  No, I didn't have it checked off.  I didn't realize that the the configuration of this module was spread over 3 different pages!!!  Not intuitive at all.  We'll see if it works now.

Have you ticked 'Automatick update' on the page 'Currency update configuration' for your company?

By the way I dislike this module because it update rates for the day it starts but not the day in the ECB file and the 'update now' button depends on 'Automatick update' checkbox that, as for me, is wrong.
