  2. Option to install all installed OS languages in office

    In the Moment, if you use matchOS, only active Languages are checked and installed. We would like to have an option that all installed and not only the used Languages get installed.in Office.

  3. Additional MatchXXX Parameter that controls the match error ignoration:

    Currently if we install C2R products from local sources and if fallback from CDN is blocked or not available and an MatchXXX parameter is set that defines some languages to be installed that are not available in local sources, the installation stops with error.
    We are requesting an additional parameter that adds control of exactly that behavior so that at least all locally available languages get installed that are detected by the MatchXXX parameter.
    Example:
    - Client has 3 Users with German, English and French OS MUIs installed
    - C2R setup has German and English included
    - Setup has MatchOS…

  5. Provide the ability to Push Office Installation from M365 App Admin Center

    The upcoming upgrade to the M365 App Admin Center (Formerly Office Admin Center a.k.a config.office.com), there are methods to do updates to existing devices. One step further would be to detect where a User has logged into a device, which is either being synced to Intune or flagged for future registration ( a process where an admin can see a device then mark it for management by Intune) then that data should be ingested to M365 App Admin Center and allowed the device to have Office installed from the cloud. I know this is within Intune but only for devices…

  6. Support removal of Office Viewers with RemoveMSI

    RemoveMSI currently supports removing Office 2007+ products, I would like to suggest ewither adding the removal of the legacy 2002/2003 viewer products as well as the Office 2007 Compatibility Pack. As an alternative, provide a way for me to manually supply MSI GUIDs that I would like to have uninstall triggered for as part of the removal.

  7. Teams client would support shared computers if it installed to "Program Files", with updates via WSUS.

    Teams is a program. It should install to "Program Files". Updates should be provided via WSUS.

    Installing software to "application data" in order to sidestep administrator safeguards is a terrible idea, presumes no-one secures application data, wastes vast amounts of space, prevents use on heavily shared computers (i.e. education) and is an all round terrible idea.

  9. allow Mac book to get full office 365 subscription and services.

    I've just changed my note book from "pc" to MacBook Air standard.
    I'm a long time Microsoft's client and happy with Microsoft (more than 40 years subscriber to office).
    the Mac vendor said to me that it will be no problem to install office 365 into Mac, unfortunately it is not true and I can see that my actual microsoft office 365 (premium subscription) can not be fully deployed into Macbook air. how can I do ? stoping office 365 subscription that I like it or asking Microsoft office 365 to allow full deployment into the Mac book air ?…

  14. ODT Will Not Install Office 365 ProPlus on Windows 7 Despite Documentation

    Office Deployment Tool fails to install Office 365 Pro Plus on Windows 7 computers stating "You need Windows 10 to continue". Microsoft documentation explicitly states that we can continue to deploy Office 365 Pro Plus on Windows 7 up through January 2023, only it will not update past release 2002. Either the documentation needs to be updated to correctly state you cannot install Office 365 ProPlus on WIndows 7 or the Office Deployment Tool needs to be updated to allow the installation to continue.

    Documentation source: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployoffice/windows-7-support#how-to-manage-office-365-proplus-on-windows-7-after-january-2020
    "To deploy or update Version 2002 on devices running Windows 7, you can…

  16. go back to the msi

    For the one or two installs that I do in a month, creating the configuration file is a waist. Plus, you must not be able to support it or I would still be able to install the software to drives other than C. For large corporations this is a nice tool, for us - not so much. Office 2019 is a total waist.

  17. Ability to add Desktop Shortcuts to the Office Configuration Tool

    It would be great to be able to automate the ability to create desktop shortcuts using the Office Configuration Tool as opposed to PinIconstoTaskbar.

    Is there anything in the works to allow this?

  19. Config.xml property suggestion

    In different office deployment approach we have noticed many issues. One of them is interrupting office installation or upgrade by opening any office app meanwhile. Many time user doesn't show enough patience and start opening shortcuts which actually corrupt the entire installation. In our environment we give a continuous notification to user that they should not open office application. But for a better and hazard-less experience that can be a property, I can suggest a property NoInterruption which will have Boolean value and will monitor upon the office related processes like Word.exe, Excel.exe etc. And that continuous thread will run…
