Turn on telemetry data collection

This policy setting allows you to turn on the data collection features in Office that are used by Office Telemetry Dashboard and Office Telemetry Log.

If you enable this policy setting, Office Telemetry Agent and Office applications will collect telemetry data, which includes Office application usage, most recently used Office documents (including file names) and solutions usage, compatibility issues, and critical errors that occur on the local computers. You can use Office Telemetry Dashboard to view this data remotely, and users can use Office Telemetry Log to view this data on their local computers.

If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, Office Telemetry Agent and Office applications do not generate or collect telemetry data.
