Frequently asked questions

Keep older versions of Office side by side on your PCs to mitigate any potential file or add-in compatibility risks.
Run existing Office 2003/2007/2010 applications while you install the new Office, so you don’t have to interrupt your users’ work.
Get updates delivered to users without interruption. Updates are cached in the background and the next time a user closes and re-opens the Office application, it is up to date.

This gives your organization the ability to de-provision Office from user-owned devices if they leave your organization. Office 365 ProPlus can be easily configured to use your email, collaboration, and directory services infrastructure, if you prefer to manage those services on-premises.
Yes, you can configure Office 365 ProPlus to apply only the software updates you have tested and validated. You can manage software updates completely in-house, either by using familiar software distribution tools or by directing Office 365 ProPlus to check for updates at your file shares or URLs.
