Beginning January 14, 2020, the Teams client will be added to existing installations for customers on the Semi-Annual Channel.

We limit the use of teams app \ desktop client to selected people only.

We have hundreds of users who have O365 installs using semi annual channel

 

Question:

 

1. do we need to create a new Office Deployment tool offline installer?

2. do we need to uninstall \ reinstall office just to exclude teams app or prevent teams app from auto installing?

 

Thanks
