Microsoft Update | Office 365 ProPlus to include Teams for existing deployments

Oct 17, 2019 | Blog | 0 comments

[TRANSCRIPT]

If you’ve already deployed Office ProPlus to your Office 365 users today and you’re planning a Teams deployment, then you might be wondering how you get Teams out to all of those users?

There’s been a variety of different options like the machine wide installer that allows you to deploy Microsoft Teams using MSI file.

Now, since February this year new installations of Office have allowed you to include the Microsoft Teams client. But if you’d already deployed to your users then you’d have had to redeploy and start again. Or, use that MSI based method.

Now the good thing that Microsoft have just announced, this July, is that existing Office installation are going to get Teams rolled out to them as well.

So, you need to be aware of this in case you need to hold back, in case of you upcoming Microsoft Teams launch. Which you can do via Group policy, or you can update and edit the template using the Office configuration tool – if you need to limit where Teams goes to.

But have a look at those announcements now to find out exactly what that involves, because it’s very important if you’re not planning to roll out Microsoft Teams today, that you understand that it’s going to get deployed by default to existing clients. Whether that is people who install it from the web, or if you’re constantly updating your installation files for Office using the Office deployment tool and then rolling that out to internal corporate users.
