I have been looking for a way to disable auto updates for office 2016 Home and Business via group policy but only seem to find ways to do this for Office 2016 Pro Plus. Is this possible with the Home and Business version of the software or is this a Pro Plus only feature? Have a guide to do so with Pro Plus 2016, https://www.petervanderwoude.nl/post/use-group-policy-to-enable-office-365-clients-to-receive-updates-via-configmgr/, but it doesn't list Home and Business.

Clients:
Win10 Pro x64
Office Home and Business 2016 x64

Server:
Server08 R2 Datacenter SP1

Have you downloaded and imported the GPO Templates for Office 2016 - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=49030

Once imported you should be able to find the setting you need.

That didn't have Home and Business under the system requirements. Should i be able to use those even though they specify Pro Plus?

Ahhhhh, yes that's correct Home and Business is not supported for use with Group Policy.

I'm not 100% familiar with Home and Business, have you researched trying to use OCT to manipulate this?
