Update from Office 2013/2016 to Office 365 Pro Plus Client
6 months ago
This summer the CCS IT department will be upgrading all
versions of Microsoft Office in the district. All computers will be updated to
the Office 365 Pro Plus client. This upgrade will add additional functionality
to all Office products, but the interface is very similar to Office 2013 and
The IT department has been testing the Office 365 Pro Plus
client on our computers for several months now and we are excited to share the
additional functionality. A second ring of deployment will begin April 24, 2019.
This ring will include an additional 600 computers which will get the Office
365 Pro Plus client. Please see the list of computer names to see if
your computer is slated to be part of ring 2. If your computer is included in
the second ring and you would like to postpone your upgrade, please send an
email to ITSupportCenter@ccs.spokane.edu
requesting a temporary exclusion from this upgrade.
Microsoft has created some very good training resources for
Office 365 which are available here.
Please note that if you have pinned any of the current office icons to your
Start menu or Taskbar you may need to re-pin them after the update.
If you have any questions about the upgrade, please contact
the IT Support Center.
