Unable to get ODK Collect Logs

What is the problem? Please be detailed.
I am trying to access ODK Collect logs to see if this could help as a solution to Audit Trails for ODK

I followed the instructions here:
Getting ODK Collect Logs

I have USB debugging enabled
Connect device to computer
Run the command
adb.exe logcat > logfile.txt

Prompt just displays: - Waiting for Device -
No matter how long I wait nothing happens
logfile.txt is blank

What ODK tool and version are you using? And on what device and operating system version?
Most recent version of ADB as per the link above
Windows 10
Android 7
ODK Collect 1.17/2

I've tried Android 7 but on Ubuntu and everything works fine. Please try answers from https://stackoverflow.com/questions/10005509/adb-logcat-hangs-with-waiting-for-device-message

Cheers that helped - issue resolved

Which one exactly? Maybe we should add it to Getting ODK Collect logs

It turned out to be fiddling the device settings - I had to allow file transfer not just usb debugging
