Office 365 ProPlus Click-To-Run updates

By default, Microsoft Office 2013 products deployed via Click-to-Run are kept up to date automatically. Click-to-Run will automatically check for updates in the background.

Each Click to Run release has a new version number. Users can find their current version by following these steps:

  1. Open any Office application
  2. Click on the File tab
  3. Click on Account (Office Account in Outlook)

The Click-to-Run version is displayed in the Click-to-Run Product Updates section.

Each user’s machine will apply the updates which are applicable to their Office product. If your version of Office does not contain an application, you will not receive updates to that application.

Interested in deploying multi-factor authentication for your business? It is now part of Office 365

Multi-factor authentication is now part of Office 365 and available for all users. Any of the following may be used for the second factor of authentication.

  1. Call my mobile phone. The user receives a phone call that asks them to press the pound key. Once the pound key is pressed, the user is logged in.
  2. Text code to my mobile phone. The user receives a text message containing a six-digit code that they must enter into the portal.
  3. Call my office phone. This is the same as Call my mobile phone, but it enables the user to select a different phone if they do not have their mobile phone with them.
  4. Notify me through app. The user configured a smartphone app and they receive a notification in the app that they must confirm the login. Smartphone apps are available for Windows Phone, iPhone, and Android devices.
  5. Show one-time code in app. The same smartphone app is used. Instead of receiving a notification, the user starts the app and enters the six-digit code from the app into the portal.

Top 10 reason why you should use a Hybrid Migration over a Staged migration (Exchange Online)

  1. Secure mail routing between on-premises and Exchange Online organizations. Require TLS authentication
  2. A unified global address list (GAL), also called a “shared address book.”
  3. Free/busy and calendar sharing will continue working between on-premises and Exchange Online.
  4. Centralized control of inbound and outbound mail flow. Costumer can configure all inbound and outbound Exchange Online messages to be routed through the on-premises Exchange organization.
  5. A single Microsoft Office Outlook Web App URL for both the on-premises and Exchange Online organizations. User will continue visiting OWA and they will get redirected from there to the cloud if needed.
  6. The ability to move existing on-premises mailboxes to the Exchange Online organization without interrupting the end-user.
  7. Exchange Online mailboxes can also be moved back to the on-premises organization if needed.
  8. Centralized mailbox management (Cloud and on-premises mailboxes) using the on-premises Exchange admin center (EAC).
  9. Message tracking, MailTips, and multi-mailbox search between on-premises and Exchange Online organizations will continue working
  10. No need to reconfigure the end-users’ profile. User will keep rules, signature and .n2k files in their outlook.
