Office 365 - Managing Security Settings

Hello Experts,

I have been managing group policy for years.  I have imported successfully the 2016 office admx templates.  They do not seem to contain what I need to be able to do globally.

Office 365 is starting up by default in all programs with protected view on and also some of the file block settings are on.  This is also profile specific.  It is blocking files from our network mapped drives.  Yes I have also added our drives as safe locations.  I need to find that setting as well.

They are profile specific so I can only change them if I log in as that person.

Is there a way I can centrally manage these settings?

Thank you,

Karen

The settings to define safe locations is in the GPO section for Office 2016\Security Settings\Trust Center section of the User Policies.

The settings for disabling protected mode are in each application's section, so Word's is in Word 2016\Word Options\Security Settings\Trust Center.

Thank you.  My admx templates were dated 9/2015 so once I updated to the latest ones 5/2016 I was able to see the settings above.  

Thank you Karen
