Updated October 27, 2020: This post has been updated to extend the visibility of the message. No changes have been made to the body of the message. In February of last year, we announced that starting on October 13, 2020, your organization would need Office 365 ProPlus or Office 2019 apps to connect to Office 365 services. On September 6 of last year, we announced that we would continue supporting Office 2016 connections with Office 365 services through October of 2023. In order for you to better understand if and how your organization is affected by this change, and where you need to take action to migrate users, we’re providing you with two System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) dashboards to help you begin your user migration. For larger organizations, we recommend starting this work in the near future in order to meet the October 13, 2020 deadline.

How does this affect me?

Office versions will now be visible in the SCCM Product Lifecycle Dashboard, and a new dashboard will display desktops in your organization that are ready to upgrade to Office 365 ProPlus with high confidence. These two features will be available with SCCM 1902. These dashboards will help ensure that your users will continue to be supported after October 13, 2020. The Product Lifecycle dashboard will display Office perpetual products, easily distinguishing the desktops that need their Office apps updated from those that do not. The ProPlus Readiness dashboard will identify the desktops that are ready to be upgraded to Office 365 ProPlus.

What do I need to do to prepare for this change?
