To allow Microsoft Office to be updated, your environment must meet the requirements outlined in Mac App Store Apps in the Jamf Pro Administrator's Guide.

    For more information about customizing default settings using configuration profiles, see the 'Customizing Microsoft Office Default Settings' section in Distribute Microsoft Office for Mac.
    For more information about the default preference keys in Microsoft AutoUpdate, see Appendix C: Microsoft AutoUpdate Default Preference Keys.

  • Method 2: Update Microsoft Office and other Microsoft applications from the command line by using the following instructions: Update Microsoft applications for Mac by using msupdate

  • Method 3: Distribute an updated version of the Microsoft Office Installer using a policy. This method is useful for force updating a large scope of computers at a specified time.
