Office 365 install MSI v.s. Click to RUN

Hello EE,

We have recently gone to Office 365 with on premise installations of Office 2010.
We are needing to upgrade to 2013/365 but do not have the bandwidth to have everyone log into the portal and download.

Thus I read about installing via MSI or Click-to-Run.  My concern is with Click to Run it appears to go online for updates and again anything that would keep the install local would be best.  We don't have any custom configuration requirements so I'm wondering what would be easier having the users click a link and run the setup.msi or Click-to-Run as I am new to it?

You can download a monthly build from MS, so any updates should be minimal. You can also configure it to disable update check, if needed. Download the deployment tool, download the office apps, put them on a share, customize if needed.

There is a ton of documentation of the tool, very detailed as well. Just follow the steps in these articles:
