Ask to update automatic links


This policy setting controls whether Excel prompts users to update automatic links or whether the updates occur in the background with no prompt.

If you enable or do not configure this policy setting Excel will prompt users to update automatic links. In addition the 'Ask to update automatic links' user interface option under File tab | Advanced | General is selected.
