Pushout .POTX template to all users Powerpoint.

I created a package that contained here the .potx lives for PowerPoint /username/library/group containers/UBF8T346G9.Office/user content/Templates

Then when creating the package i checked the FEU and FUT boxs.

Added the package to Self Service, but when I install it it doesn't put the template where I need it.

Anyone had success with this type of thing?

We are running Office 2016\365 here.

Thanks
Nick

You created a dmg right?

No problems here - we push our templates out using a policy.

The DMG we've created looks like this:

Do you do just self service or automatically push it out to everyone? Also I created a .pkg, I will try it now as .DMG.

We push it as part of our build workflow but it works exactly the same from Self Service.

The key is the DMG - it's the only way to get the files into the user profiles.

Great thanks .DMG did the trick, and it pushes out nicely at recurring checkin. Do you have set to ongoing or just once per user? I went with once per user at the moment.

Thanks

We've got it set to once per computer on a recurring checkin - when our templates change we just flush the logs to queue it for deployment.

As an alternative to deploying to user home folders, you can also place templates for everyone for all applications here:

"/Library/Application Support/Microsoft/Office365/User Content"
