Delay Office Pro Plus Updates using Intune

I am assuming that you have your Office Pro Plus set to obtain updates from the CDN also known as the Content Delivery Network. In this case the normal behaviour is to receive the latest update for your channel i.e. Monthly or Semi-Annual Channel. In this post I am going to show you how to create an Intune Policy to set a target version for Office Pro Plus which can be useful when your require greater control over which version you want to release to your clients.

  • Once the Policy has succeeded you can also look at the registry value for updatetargetversion which should match the build you entered in the policy.
