Several of our customers want to manage the new Microsoft Office mobile app. This mobile app combines Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint into a single app; for more information, see the Ignite TechCommunity announcement Introducing Office – Your new go-to mobile app for getting work done or the release announcement, The new Office app now generally available for Android and iOS.
 

The Microsoft Office app for Android is available in the Google Play store and Apple App Store. The Microsoft Office mobile supports Intune app protection policies today. For more details on how to target apps with your app protection policy, see How to create and assign app protection policies.

 

Office recently published how to control file transfer including how to block URLs or block IP addresses:

NOTE - several folks asked for the information that was in this blog when the app was in preview (for context). Prior to the app being publicly available, you added the following custom app bundle ID's and apps. 

1 - For Android App Protection Policies, add the Office Hub, Office Hub [HL], and Office Hub [ROW] apps.

2 - For iOS App Protection Policies, use com.microsoft.officemobile as a custom app bundle ID.

 

2/20/20: Updated with availability of the iOS and Android app
3/6/2020: Updated with the prior information that was in the blog for context. 
3/25/2020: Updated with how to block URLs or IP addresses.
