A little while back I wrote about ConfigMgr and managing Office Click-to-Run 2013 and recently I was asked about how I am dealing with Office Click-to-Run 2016 and ConfigMgr. As you could guess I updated my handy shell script to deal with it. I'm glad that Microsoft released Office365 Update support in the 1606 update for ConfigMgr Current Branch that manages Office 365 ProPlus Updates directly within ConfigMgr so I never spent much time other then adapting the older shell script to 2016 and all the channels.
Still wish MS would only download if the version is changed to whats local.
FunctionThis will download all four channels in both 32-Bit and 64-Bit. Each channel for both arches is about 2.75GB in size. After downloading, the script will generate an email and very simply tell you the versions for each channel. Formally I had attached the ODT log but since it was never referenced its since been removed. For 2016 it looks like this:
Office365ProPlus 2016 Click-to-Run Download Complete. See you next time!

You can find the download script referenced in this post here. You will need to tweak them for your environment. Additionally, you will need to download the latest ODT from Microsoft and blat.exe for email.
