Office 365 ProPlus
Office 365 ProPlus is one of the subscription service plans in the new Office. It is productivity software (including Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, OneNote, Publisher, Access, Skype for Business) that is installed on your desktop or laptop computer. Office 365 ProPlus is a user-based service that allows people to access Office experiences on up to 5 PCs or Macs and on their mobile devices. Traditional Office installations were tied to the computers they were installed on. Office 365 ProPlus enables flexible new deployment options that IT and/or individual users can choose from to install Office.
Office 365 ProPlus is targeted at enterprises, and includes always-up-to-date versions of the core Office desktop apps along with enterprise-grade security and compliance features, enhanced communication via Skype for Business, and fine-grained controls for deployment and management. Some small businesses in highly regulated industries, or those wanting higher levels of IT control, may also be interested in ProPlus.
Office 365 Business also offers always-up-to-date versions of the core Office desktop apps, but without any of the additional security, communication, or administrative features listed above. Office 365 Business is also supported only up to a maximum business size of 300 users, whereas ProPlus is available for an unlimited number of seats.
Office 365 includes apps (e.g. Word, Excel), storage (in OneDrive), and services (e.g. Exchange, SharePoint). Different suites offer different combinations of these elements.
- Office 365 ProPlus offers the Office desktop apps plus 1 TB of cloud storage. These apps are always up to date and new functionality can be added as often as monthly. It does not include services.
- Office 365 E1 offers services only, plus online and mobile versions of the apps. Some customers buy E1 on its own, while others combine it with other versions of the Office apps.
- Office 365 E3 provides a complete suite of apps, storage, and services, combining the Office 365 ProPlus desktop apps and storage with the Office 365 E1 services, along with additional security and compliance features.
- Office 365 E5 is our most advanced, secure, and comprehensive offering, including everything in Office 365 E3 plus advanced security, analytics, and voice capabilities.
A persistent Internet connection is not required; Office 365 ProPlus is designed to run locally on your PC. Internet access is required to install and activate Office, but IT administrators in traditional private cloud environments can deploy Office and Office updates using software distribution tools and infrastructure.
Some advanced features require internet connection (e.g., Insights in Excel, Researcher in Word.) Connecting to the Internet regularly ensures that you can receive automatic updates and that your Office apps are on the latest versions. Internet access will also be needed to manage your Office 365 account, e.g., to change payment options or to access documents stored on OneDrive.
Yes! People using Office 365, Office 2019, 2016, 2013, 2010, and 2007 as well as Office for Mac 2008 or later will be able to open and view your documents. Those on versions earlier than Office 2007 may need to install a compatibility pack.
Yes, you can configure Office 365 ProPlus to apply only the software updates you have tested and validated. You can manage software updates completely in-house, either by using familiar software distribution tools or by directing Office 365 ProPlus to check for updates at your file shares or URLs.
Annual commitment refers to the length of time the service agreement lasts. When you purchase Office 365 ProPlus, it’s an annual commitment, but you can choose to pay month to month or pay the entire amount for the year at the time you sign up.
You can cancel your subscription at any time. For annual commitment subscriptions, such as Office 365 ProPlus, there is a penalty for canceling before the end of your contract. Read the complete Microsoft Online Subscription Agreement.
Your data is yours. If you decide to cancel your Office 365 subscription, you can download your data—for example, your email and documents on team sites—and save it to another location. You should save your data before you cancel. After you cancel your subscription, data associated with your Office 365 account will be available to your administrator(s) in a limited function account for 90 days.
