I need to use the Status plugin with widgets

I need to be able to use the Status plugin with widgets. The Status Update widget says the settings need to be “Please, switch your placement settings to manual in plugin settings”. When I do that, the status update widget disappears. So, how do I use Status, if I can’t do updates?
