I don't know if a Magento store can survive without this extension. It allows you to see exactly what is going on with your cron jobs, and if they are working.
Some tips to make everything work. When you use Magento Connect, after installation, go back to the admin backend, log out and log back in.
Also be sure that the Magento cron.php is working on your server. Nothing will work unless you do this first. There are quite a few articles online about how to do this. If you have cPanel, it should be pretty easy to set up. Just be sure to run it every 5 minutes. I used the command: wget -O /dev/null -q http://www.YOURDOMAIN.com/PATH_TO_MAGENTO/cron.php > /dev/null
Lastly, I at first had a problem with the schedules running. A sure way to test this is whether the hearbeat is running every 5 minutes. In my case, I could manually run it and it would run without any errors, but then afterwards I would get the error "heartbeat is older than x minutes." This is a bug with the newer versions of Magento. In the cron.php file, find the following line:
<code>$isShellDisabled = (stripos(PHP_OS, ‘win’) === false) ? $isShellDisabled : true;</code>
Right after this line, add:
<code>$isShellDisabled = true;</code>
In a couple of minutes, you will see that everything is working properly.

Very useful, reduce time spend and give the ability to perform tasks manually. The cron job is not black box anymore!. Now, I feel that I have the control.
Great job, congratulations!

Rated 5 out of 5 by shadow257 Extremely Useful!
Crons in Magento were always tricky, and while trying to figure out if they run or not in a new environment I came across this extension. I installed it on 1.9CE and no issues with it, works better than it says and plays nice with other extensions. This is now a permanent extension for all my Magento installs! Awesome job guys!
