  • Hi Everyone,

    I hope I am posting in the right section.

    We're trying to use SCCM to deploy Office 365 updates.

    Our Goal is to:

     - Make sure everyone is on the same version

     - Make sure all future updates are only pushed out using deployments on SCCM

     - Make sure Office 365 doesn't auto update

     - Make sure the deployment made to update Office 365 using SCCM installs as quickly as possible.

    Something to keep in mind:

     - Our environment currently has multiple versions of Office 365, mostly versions that contain Skype for Business and we want to have it removed.

    Additionally, I am aware that I will be told to look at MS Docs however, I find that even though they are useful, it's very hard to get anything done for me using that information as I am a beginner and the Docs bounce you from page to page (for example links take you to other things that you needs to focus on reading before you continue).

    Thank you for all your help.

  • Hi,

    Nick provides the useful guidance. And you want to make sure O365 does not auto update, we could set it through GPO, below link should helpful to you:

  • Some configurations need to be done at GPO level and also SCCM for deployment of latest proplus clients.

    - Make sure everyone is on the same version -->Use reports to find out who is on what version and deploy the latest proplus to lower versions .

     - Make sure all future updates are only pushed out using deployments on SCCM-->Configure GPO to disable auto updates for office proplus ,refer to office 2016 administrative template section in GPO and all updates will be pushed by SCCM.

     - Make sure Office 365 doesn't auto update-->Same as above

     - Make sure the deployment made to update Office 365 using SCCM installs as quickly as possible.-->Use office 365 client dashboard ,use monitoring section ,deploy the updates as they release from SCCM.

  • Sorry for the delay in my reply.

    I literally had to go in an manually uninstall Office and then deploy it through SCCM.

    I then went over and created deployment packages for Office365 department by department and it seems like everything goes through.

    There are exceptions though, unfortunately.

    Some machines are appearing as already compliant for some reason and I can't deploy to those, even after confirming that Office365 and Teams or any other Office associated software is showing up in control panel.
