Hello!

 

Can we change update channels for Office 365 local applications (from Semi-Annual Channel to Monthly Channel) for selected users, without changing GPO? Is there any reg parameters we can change locally on the PC?

 

Thank you!

@aero2466 Not used it myself but there is this process if that would help (just make sure a GPO doesn’t set this back) -

 

  1. Launch Command Prompt as an administrator.
  2. Navigate to “C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\ClickToRun\”
OfficeC2RClient.exe /changesetting Channel=Monthly

And

 

OfficeC2RClient.exe /update user
