If you haven’t already, you will likely soon face the task of rolling out Office 365 Click-to-Run. Microsoft’s subscription based Office suite is gaining traction. As with all your other applications, you will probably want to use Configuration Manager to do so. Office 365 changes the way we deploy applications, and it may take a bit of digging to figure out how we manage the Office 365 product using Configuration Manager.
Essentially there are two methods of deploying Office 365 ProPlus:
- Install Office 365 ProPlus directly from the Office 365 portal. Installing on demand from the portal may work for only a few users, but does not scale well.
- Download Office 365 ProPlus, create a local deployment source, and then deploy it to your users.
This second option is the one we will review in this post.
