Hi we are planning to get a Microsoft Office Suite for our Macs through a third-party reseller. Just wanted to know if deploying and activating the app by remotely applying the licenses is possible via Hexnode.
Thanks in advance.

    Hello @Anneli-27, when you purchase the Office Suite from your third-party reseller, the software licensing could be covered under different programs. You can consult with your reseller regarding the deployment. Depending on your scenario, Hexnode can be used to achieve your objective.

    For example, let’s say you had obtained the Office suite covered under Microsoft Volume Licensing Contract. In this case, when you make the purchase, your reseller should be sending you an email with the necessary codes for activation, like the Authorization number and license number. You can then sign in to the Microsoft Volume Licensing Service Center and associate the product using the codes. You can also obtain the Volume License Serializer app package from the same site. It’s an approximately 4 MB package file that you run on a user’s computer, either before or after you’ve installed the Office software. The app will automatically license the product, and users won’t have to enter the activation codes manually. It should be possible to deploy this app to your endpoint using Hexnode’s app deployment features.

    Cheers!
