Install Project Pro 365 without installing Office for Business Std Apps RRS feed

  • Question

  • Our company is not ready to roll out Office 365 for Business yet, however will be within the next year. We need to purchase Project and Visio and wondering if we can install the 365 versions of these applications ( so we can use project online) without installing the standard 365 apps like Outlook, Word, Excel, etc.

  • This is actually pretty easy to do.  

    1. Add users to your O365 instance

    2. Add users to your Project Online and/or Visio Online groups

    3. Remove access to OneDrive for all users.  OneDrive is tied together with the standard office suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.) so removing it will effectively hide the icons that lead to these other applications.  Roll out is as easy as enabling OneDrive allowing the icons to be seen.
