We’re excited to announce that the Intune Company Portal app for Windows is getting a new modernized design. Users will be able to use the same functionality they’re used to with an improved experience on their desktop app. This blog covers what’s changing and how to prepare.

 

Available for preview now, released to the Microsoft Store in August 2024

A preview version for the updated Company Portal is now available for download in the Microsoft Download center. The preview will be available until late August. It should only be used for testing purposes and updating your IT admin and user documentation. We’ll release the new Company Portal to the Microsoft Store in late August and it’ll automatically update for all users where Microsoft Store apps are configured to auto-update. See Common Store policy settings and their impact on Microsoft Store apps for details on enabling and configuring Microsoft Store app updates.

 

How to deploy the preview

Download the Company Portal app installation file and all dependencies applicable to your device architecture. Navigate to the Microsoft Intune admin center and Add a Windows line-of-business app to Microsoft Intune. Assign the app to a small group of test devices or users.

 

On your device, sync with Intune and confirm the Company Portal app installed correctly.

 

Important: If Company Portal from the Microsoft Store is also assigned to the same user/device, make sure you have the latest preview version. Company Portal automatically updates to the latest version targeted so your preview version needs to be higher than the version available in the Microsoft Store.

 

What to expect

With the updated design, users will see improvements in user experience for the Home, Devices, and Downloads & updates pages. The new design is more intuitive and highlights areas where users need to take action.

Frequently asked questions

Q: Will there be improvements in the functionality or new features available with this update?

A: While the redesign offers improvement to the user experience, there is no intended change to the supported feature-set at this time.

 

Q: Can I use the preview version in my production tenant?

A: You can use the preview version in production tenants for testing purposes but keep in mind that this version will be removed from Microsoft Download center as soon as we release to the Microsoft Store at the end of July 2024.

 

Q: Is it possible to keep using the old look for Company Portal?

A: When we release the new Company Portal design to the Microsoft Store, it’ll automatically update for users who have configured the Microsoft Store to update apps automatically. If you haven’t configured this, you’ll continue to use the old version until you decide to update it manually using the Microsoft Store app on the device itself. It’ll not be possible to download any updated version of the old Company Portal look.
