You can activate it at the booking office when you purchase your compulsory seat reservation (€10) if you haven't already purchased it.

Compulsory seat reservation just needed for Milan to Lugano ? Do we need reservation for travel in Switzerland or Germany ?

Almost never. Apart from night trains, usually only to sit in panoramic tourist carriages on a few special tourist trains in Switzerland, and on a very few fast trains in Germany. See seat61.com/…20cost for details

For Milan-Lugano, you only need a reservation for the direct Eurocity trains from Milano Centrale. You don't need reservations if you travel on Regional trains, e.g. from Milano Porta Garibaldi and change trains in Chiasso.
