If a new version of a managed software is released, can it auto update the package in Distribution such as Office 365 Business Standard package?

  • Short but sweet lol, or in full, no you will either need to manually replace the MI payload or create a fresh MI to distribute the new software ;o)
    • Well thank you for the quick response. The system we left to use KACE did this for us, so I suppose I should add this to the wish list.
      • No worries, you’ve found the best place to ask your questions, anytime ;o)
      • What system were you using before?
      • We were previously using PDQ Inventory/Deploy...

Having been burned too many times in the past, I would recommend that you never - EVER - let your vendors loose on your estate in the form of automated updates. 

Obtain the update and UAT the Hell out of it first!
