Office 365 by its self is a fairly easy Application to deploy but it can get complicated when you need to remove other Office products or install different versions of Office 365 based on what was installed on the target device. That all being said I wanted to create a reference for getting all the tools that make office deployments easy and throw in a few tips to solve some more unique issues you may have with deploying Office 365.
1. The first thing you want to do is download the Office Deployment Tool. Once you install the Tool you will find a setup.exe file and a configuration.xml.

Create a package for the GUI, give the package a name like TS_GUI, for the version type x64, check the box "This package contains source files" and brose for the TSGUI_x64 folder.
