Description: In this article you will learn some new features and some tips that you have to pay attention to about the Office 2016 which has been just released by Microsoft and the team.
Congratulations to Microsoft and the office team for their release of office 2016.
Today I’m going to tell you some new features about office 2016, but first I want to point out how to get it onto your machines because I did find this slightly confusing to begin with, I got the latest version of office when it gets released and there is a new way to deploy office.
At the moment that’s coming out with 2016 that we need to be aware of, before we can approach this, the deployment method is called the current branch for business. The key thing to do is to go into your portal and to make sure that you have activated it.
When you make it available to your whole organization or to a group of people, they will be able to see the option to install office 2016 in there and portal settings. If we go over to my portal, I’ve got the office installation page open and my office settings and I have got the machines installed on and activated, now we have the option here, install the latest version of Office, but this is still office 2013, so I’ve been enabled for first release in my portal and below that we have an option to try the next version of Office.
For those who have already installed it, you don’t have to do anything to install the generally available version of Office 2016 because you have already got it; and for those who haven’t installed it, you have to install first then you will see the option.
Then choose your installation language, and you click on install now, I’ve even that five key applications are opened the desktop and the suite to my taskbar to make sure that I know, key things to remember are that if you want to make this available to your people to install from the portal, you do need to turn on first release, otherwise you’ll be waiting till February 2016 for this to take over and the office 2016 installation will become the option that says install the latest version of Office and by then, office 2016 will be available via the current branch business model.
