What is the Salesforce Education Data Architecture (EDA) Telemetry Feature for?

In order to evolve EDA, the Telemetry functionality captures different levels of usage and user adoption.  These metrics will guide the product’s evolution.

Of course no personally identifiable information is collected thorough EDA Feature Telemetry, as the focus is on collecting information about what features are being used by organisations and what’s not in active use.

Metric collection can involve three types of data:

  1. Boolean (True/False),
  2. Integer
  3. Date

 

Note: EDA Feature Telemetry data is collected during the push upgrade process.

 

Some of the metrics included in their collection process are:

  • How many orgs are using the Administrative Account model as the default setting?
