During the Ignite 2020 conference, Ales Holecek announced a series of new services to help organizations manage their Office apps from the Microsoft 365 Apps Admin center. Since then, we have started to roll out the App Health service, were you can see the overall health of your Office apps.
Today, we are excited to be releasing the next set of tools and services that will provide you with insights, automation, and control to efficiently manage your monthly Office app updates. These features include:
To access these services, you will need to ensure that each of your Office Apps are on a Version 2007 or later. You will also be required to run through a simple onboarding process which is outlined below. Once the onboarding has been completed, the next time a user launches one of the Office Apps, the newly enhanced click-to-run service will register that device with our inventory service. From there you will start seeing all of the new features light up.
Enabling preview features
The following steps will enable your tenant to access all of the preview features within the Apps Admin center.
You have now enrolled your tenant into the preview. Next time your users launch an Office App with Version 2007 and higher, you will start to see rich information within your inventory.
