How-to: Deploy Office 365 (2016) Using SCCM and Intune


Microsoft Office 365 Click-to-Run (2016) was releases earlier this month, so I thought it was time to release a new and updated version of my previous guide for Office 2013. The previous version has been downloaded more than 35.000 times from Microsoft Technet. Thank you!

The previous guide for Office 2013 can still be downloaded from Microsoft TechNet here:

Moving on with the new Office 365/2016 edition, I’ve asked my colleague and deployment specialist Hans Chr. Andersen to help me write this new guide, so we could cover more deployment scenarios, and get them out faster.

We have a lot of ideas so expect to see more ConfigMgr/SCCM and Intune guides covering similar scenarios that can help people to get started with Microsoft System Center and the Enterprise Mobility Suite.

The goal was to release the guide on TechNet with 3 deployment scenarios, and then release a new updated version until every scenario is covered. So stay tuned!

This first release describes how to prepare, add and deploy Microsoft Office 365 Professional Plus (2016) using both System Center Configuration Manager Software Packages, Applications and Microsoft Intune standalone.

The new guide for Office 365 can be downloaded here:

We’re already working on the next release, so make sure you follow us both on Twitter to get announcements about new and updated versions.

  2. Great guide- very helpful! Thanks to both you and Hans for this.

    The configuration.xml you show in this guide sets updates to be downloaded from the CDN. Can you recommend a way to have Intune handle the updates for Office 365 ProPlus? I see “Office 365 Client Update” entries in the “Updates” in Intune– although I only see “current channel”, “first release for deferred” and “first release for current”, there is no “deferred channel”.
