GPO setting default file location for Office 365 doesn't apply correct

Jesper Pedersen 0 Reputation points


I'm trying to setup Office 365 using Group Policies. The policies seems to be applied correctly (they can be located under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\office\16.0...) But the policies regarding file locations all seems to be ignored.

As an example, I have set 2 policies for Excel under "Microsoft Excel 2016/Excel Options/Save":

  • "Save Excel Files as"
  • "Default file location"

The first applies correctly, while the second seems to be ignored. I have tried both with UNC network path, mappede network drive and a local folder. All with the same result: only folders typed in manually at "file/Options/Save/Defalut File Locations" have any effect.

Any help would be appreciated - thx
