office 2016 deployment, citrix, office 365

our users mailbox is in office 365

we are upgrading  from office 2010 to office 2016.

we  have at present on premise  office 2010 installed in our citrix environment.

we are streaming outlook through xenapp servers.

users log in through citrix receiver on their desktop and open outlook, word, excel etc.

we are looking at methods to go for upgrade

1)we plan to download office 2016 from portal , if so will our present group policy work?

2) secondly if we plan to go for shared computer activation

do we need to change to enterprise licensing

and also do we need dedicated terminal server as I  believe that installation through deployment tool

and OCT tool wont work in xenapp servers

can u explain

I can only respond to the GPO, no your current Office 2010 GPO will not work with Office 2016. You will have to download the GPO ADMX templates for Office 2016 and create new GPOs for Office 2016.

Here is a reference link for the shared computer activation for Office.

Im not sure about citrix questions, maybe another expert can assist with that.
