Today the 1806 version of System Center Configuration Manager shipped with a very important update to the Office 365 ProPlus client deployment experience.  http://config.office.com/ is now fully integrated with Configuration Manager, providing administrators with the ability to create custom Office 365 ProPlus deployments using the Office Customization Service which ensures that administrators always have access to the latest Click-to-Run deployment and management features.

Newly available deployment options include:

  • Intelligent language pack deployment using MatchOS
  • Fall back to CDN for language packs when installing from a local source
  • Removal of existing Office versions from a client during deployment
  • Deployment of application settings 

 

Upgrade to 1806 today and use the new experience to create and manage your Office 365 ProPlus deployments.  https://cloudblogs.microsoft.com/enterprisemobility/2018/07/31/update-1806-for-configuration-manager...

This is great news, now to get all my old DPs on new hardware and updated to server 2016 so I can upgrade past 1710.

With the recent announcement about Office 2019 Professional Plus, be aware that this product is not currently available in the products list at config.office.com or when using the Office Client Installation Wizard in the new Configuration Manager 1806 release.

 

The Office team is currently working on changes needed to support Office 2019 Professional Plus in both of these scenarios and we hope to have an update by the end of October.
