Microsoft Office 2010 For Windows and Office 2016 for Mac will reach end of support on October 13th, 2020.
After this date, Microsoft will no longer provide technical support, bug fixes, or security updates for Office 2016 for Mac and Office 2010. You will still be able to use these versions of Office, but over time, organizations may face an increase in security risks and compliance issues.
After October 13, 2020, customers will need to be running Microsoft 365 Apps, Office 2019, or Office 2016 to connect to Office 365 services. Microsoft will not take any active measures to block legacy versions of the Office client from connecting to Office 365 services, but these older clients may encounter performance and/or reliability issues over time and will no longer be supported or receive security fixes and bug fixes from Microsoft.
Due to the changes listed above, Microsoft recommends that you upgrade to one of the latest versions of Office as soon as possible.
If you would like more information on how this may affect your business or you would like to upgrade to Office365 or Office2019 please contact CalderIT on 0330 0020 088 or via our contact us page.
