This is the Volume License Edition for Microsoft Office for Mac 2016. The version included is 15.13.3 and there is NO patch needed, it installs without any serial.
After the install you are prompted to sign In to Access Cloud Storage. You can skip this step.
Since this is a Volume License you can make use of the auto-updater.
However, the included version is the latest available at the time of this post.
You do NOT need to block any connections but you can. I recommend to block all connections.
The auto-update needs the following connections allowed:
188.8.131.52 on port 443 (https)
scus-config.officesapps.live.com on port 443 (https)
Basically you can block everything Office related minus the hosts to auto-update. Also, do not block the connections needed for Outlook or OneNote.
This needs 6.45 GB of space on your hard-disk. It installs the complete package of Office including Word, Excel, OneNote, Outlook and PowerPoint. It also installs all languages and fonts.
Do NOT delete any languages since this can cause the apps to crash and reset the license!
Welcome to the new Office for Mac!
Unmistakably Office, designed for Mac. Do your best work—anywhere, anytime and with anyone.
Get started quickly with new, modern versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and OneNote.
Create, polish, and share beautiful and professional documents
The state-of-the-art authoring and reviewing tools in Word make the creation of polished documents easy. The new Insights pane shows relevant contextual information from the web inside Word. The Design tab enables you to manage layout, colors, and fonts across a document. Get more done by working together using built-in tools to share and review documents. Several people can work on the same document simultaneously and use threaded comments to have a conversation right next to relevant text.
Analyze and visualize numbers in new and intuitive ways
The new Excel for Mac enables you to turn numbers into insights. Familiar keyboard shortcuts and data entry enhancements like formula builder and autocomplete immediately make you more productive. Excel also helps you visualize your data by recommending charts best suited for your numbers, and letting you quickly preview the different options. New PivotTable Slicers help you discover patterns in large volumes of data.
Create multimedia presentations and present your ideas with confidence
Walk into your next presentation with complete confidence. The new Presenter View in PowerPoint displays the current slide, next slide, speaker notes, and a timer on your Mac, while projecting only the presentation to your audience on the big screen. A new Animation pane helps you design and fine-tune animations, and refined slide transitions ensure the finished product is polished. Easily share your presentation and invite others to work on the same presentation simultaneously.
Harness your thoughts in your very own digital notebook
Capture, organize, and share your ideas with digital notebooks that you can access on any device. Find things quickly with a powerful search engine that tracks your tags, indexes your typed notes, and recognizes text in images and handwritten notes. Bold, italicize, underline, highlight, insert files, pictures and tables—format your notes like you want. Easily share notebooks with friends, family, or colleagues so everyone can work together on travel plans, household tasks, or work projects.
Stay organized with an email and calendar experience that's fast and looks great
Managing your email, calendar, contacts, and tasks has never been easier. The new Outlook for Mac has push mail support so your inbox is always up to date. The improved conversation view automatically organizes your inbox around threaded conversations, so you'll never hunt for related messages again. And the new message preview gives you the first sentence of an email just below the subject line, so you can quickly decide if you want to read it now or come back later.
