Is Office 2016 for MAC availble to be downloaded for an Office 365 E3 user?  I know Office 2016 Proplus is available to be downloaded for PC users.  

thanks,

It is. You will most likely need to download it from a Mac.

Thanks.

I think my other administrator disallow all the users from downloading the app from Office 365.  Where in the portal I go to allow a particular user to download from his MAC?

Also, if I want to do something similar to Office Deployment Tools on a PC in the MAC environment, any KB that provides that instructions?

Thanks.

Thanks all.

Todd,  

I am looking at the "Download Office 2016 for Mac to your local network" in the link but I do not see the Service Settings>User Software option - see attached.

Please advise again.

Thanks,

O365 is always changing and they/we are having a hard time keeping up.  It is frustrating.

When logged into the Office 365 Admin Center portal, click on the cog in the top right corner and then click on "Office 365" under "Your app settings".  That will open up Settings under your account.  Next, click on the link that reads "Software".  Finally, click on the "Install" button to download the install package locally.

Again, you can only download the install package for Mac from a Mac.
