We deployed Windows 10 PC by using Microsoft Intune.
We use the Windows 10/Office 365 app profile to deploy Office 365 on these PC.
After the enrollment of the Windows 10 device, Office ProPlus appears in the app settings of the device and works fine.
When an Office update occurs, the app settings of the PC shows the Office ProPlus and an new Office 365 Business item.
When this occurs, we have some issues because of these two Office instances. For example, the file extensions associations are lost.
The question is: why the Office update installs a "Office 365 Business" whereas the intial setup done by Intune installed a "Office ProPlus" ?

@Emmanuel705 What are the users Office license entitlement? almost sounds like ProPlus has been installed via Intune but the entitlement is only Office 365 Business

We finally deployed an Intune profile to uninstall Office ProPlus and a new profile (App type Office 365 Suite/Windows 10) by using ODT XML file to configure Office Business instead of Office ProPlus.
The pro : the right version of Office is now deployed
The cons : we cannot include Teams with this deployment method.

@Oleg KYes, the config.office.com tool does not provide a way to include/exclude Microsoft Teams among the different apps whereas it's possible via the builtin Office Proplus app profile in Intune.

@Emmanuel705 It looks like the Office Deployment Team (separate from Intune) is addressing how Teams is or is not included with Office deployments and that it is a relatively recent change. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployoffice/teams-install

I saw that the other day as well, would need to test is if it also applies to Office 365 Business as well as ProPlus. and would need to test with Monthly or SACT update channel as it is not rolling out to SAC channel until July 9, 2019.
@Emmanuel705you can also address the Teams installer as a seperate Intune Client App - Line-of-business app using the teams MSI installers https://aka.ms/teams32bitmsi https://aka.ms/teams64bitmsi
ensure that when you set the App conifugration that you turn on "Ignore app version" as Teams is self-updating
Or if you wanted more control of the package and checking installed version etc make it an "Windows app (Win32)" client app and use either the Teams_windows_x64.exe or the Teams_windows_x64.msi and configure application detection rules. with this you will need to download the Microsoft Win32 Content Prep Tool (https://github.com/Microsoft/Microsoft-Win32-Content-Prep-Tool) to create the .intunewin file
