Updating microsoft outlook
Based on which channel you are in and which license you have, you’ll get certain updates sooner or later than others.
Depending on your subscription and installation type you can control which channel you are in.
If nothing is specified, you are in the Monthly Channel.
If you don’t have this section at all, you are using an MSI-based installation.
So if you don’t want to waste your time with these kind of surprises, it is best to remain in the Current Channel.
The Semi-annual Channel (Targeted) contains the new features and fixes that will ultimately be added to the Semi-annual Channel.
The Monthly Channel (Targeted) gets about 2 releases per month and are quite stable.
This build is recommended to be assigned to a select amount of people within a corporation that has decided to use the Semi-annual Channel.For all channels, any security updates will be released once a month.For the Semi-annual Channel, these updates will not be combined with any additional changes or features unless required by the security update.MSI-based installations are “traditional” Office installations that are only available to Volume License subscribers.These installations aren’t updated via Office 365 but via Windows Update.
This release is supported for 18 months after its release.
