I just got this beautiful email from our reseller:
Naturally there is no Skype for Business client listed. I am so not surprised by this. Lync 4ever!
8/1's not far away now. Time to start prepping for it. Thanks for posting this Emily!
As for SFB, I would hope MS will eventually release that for the Mac, as its available on Windows, so of course the org wants to move to it for unified comms, even though we're barely through our Lync release into the environment.
I think Emily's humor was lost on some folks. ;-)
Microsoft may make some general announcements to a few media sources to help get the word out when the time really comes, but the best place to check will be their Office Blogs site. You can pretty much count on any announcements to be made there and they'll be official.
I haven't been able to verify the date with other resources. I wonder if your vendor is simply creating SKU's for the new products.
I would like to be silly and point out that screen shot shows "8/1" but it doesn't indicate which year. :)
Abdiaziz - I have experienced these same prompts when I open office docs from our SharePoint site. If I click on "Always Allow", then it will overwrite my keychain item for my sharepoint site. Then the next time I go to sharepoint, I have to enter my password.
What is your experience with these prompts?
btw. did anyone uninstall Office 2011 prior or post Office 2016 install? I hopped that the Office package would do an upgrade but it left some 2011 files behind, unlike when I was doing Outlook 2016 push. So, now I need to remove older office version to keep this clean but even after indexing it I still don't see the uninstall option.
Standalone and volume license copy is supposed to be released in September.
Volume License copy is supposed to be released "in early August," per the Microsoft Office blog. (https://blogs.office.com/2015/07/22/your-top-10-questions-about-office-2016-for-mac-answered/)
