Managing Office 365 ProPlus with Config Manager

Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager lets you manage Office 365 ProPlus apps in the following ways:

Deploy Office 365 apps
You can start the Office 365 Installer from the Office 365 Client Management dashboard to make the initial Office 365 App installation experience easier. The wizard lets you configure Office 365 installation settings, download files from Office Content Delivery Networks (CDNs), and create and deploy a script application with the content.

Deploy Office 365 updates
You can manage Office 365 client updates by using the software update management workflow. When Microsoft publishes a new Office 365 client update to the Office Content Delivery Network (CDN), Microsoft also publishes an update package to Windows Server Update Services (WSUS). After Configuration Manager synchronizes the Office 365 client update from the WSUS catalog to the site server, the update is available to deploy to clients.

Add languages for Office 365 update downloads
You can add support for Configuration Manager to download updates for any languages supported by Office 365. Meaning Configuration Manager doesn’t have to support the language as long as Office 365 does. Prior to Configuration Manager version 1610 you must download and deploy updates in the same languages configured on Office 365 clients.

Change the update channel
You can use group policy to distribute a registry key value change to Office 365 clients to change the update channel.
