SCCM TP 1806 – Office Customization Tool integration

In the new Technical Preview version 1806 of SCCM, the Office Customization Tool is now integrated with the Office 365 installer. This gives a better admin experience than the previous Office 365 installer, and allows you to further customize your Office 365 ProPlus settings.

If you go to the Office 365 Client Management section and click on the Office 365 Installer, there is a new option to Go to Office Web Page.

This is where we can start customizing Office 365 ProPlus including entering in your organisation name, selecting either 32 or 64bit, excluding certain products, and selecting your language.

You can choose your update channel and a specific version. I have chosen semi-annual channel and the latest version.

I have selected to automatically accept the EULA.

This is one of the nice parts where you can further customize Office 365 ProPlus. I won’t go through all the settings but some of the settings I have configured are to disable the opt-in wizard at first run, and to disable the customer experience improvement, and to disable the first run movie.

Once you’re done, click on Submit then close the webpage.

You can continue on with the rest of the wizard as normal to download and deploy Office 365 ProPlus. It will create an application for you and the deployment types with requirement rules.

At the end you can see that the wizard has created the Application with the configuration.xml with the settings specified in the Office Customization Tool.
