How to Deploy Teams Using Intune | Office 365 ProPlus

Let’s check the process to deploy Teams using Intune along with other Office Apps. I have Microsoft Teams deployment guide using ConfigMgr.

We must use Office 365 ProPlus licenses to activate Office 365 ProPlus apps deployed through Microsoft Intune.

NOTE! – When you have already installed MSI Office apps on the end-user device, you must use the Remove MSI feature to safely uninstall these apps.

Properties

  • Select Use shared computer activation – If you want to install Teams on a shared device, then select YES
    • Select NO if the Teams installation is for a single user device

NOTE! – Shared computer activation lets you deploy Office 365 ProPlus to computers that are used by multiple users. Normally, users can only install and activate Office 365 ProPlus on a limited number of devices, such as 5 PCs. Using Office 365 ProPlus with shared computer activation doesn’t count against that limit. 

  • Accept the Microsoft Software License Terms on behalf of users
    • NO is the default option
  • Select the Language for Teams

NOTE! – By default, Intune will install Office with the default language of the operating system. Choose any additional languages that you want to install.
