macOS - Custom XML payloads for Microsoft Office 2016 for Mac

An XML file containing the plist snippets (<dict>...</dict>) you can optionally deploy via Custom XML payloads in order to bypass the screens shown on first-run of Microsoft Office applications, as well as control how updates to Office applications are applied via Microsoft AutoUpdate.  

NOTE:  You must paste each snippet into its own payload - you cannot paste the entire file into a single custom XML payload.  

IMPORTANT:  The Microsoft AutoUpdate snippet enables background auto-updates and disables the checkbox for "Insider" builds.

For AutoUpdate configuration you can also use the string "AutomaticDownload" instead of "Automatic" to have Outlook automatically download and install updates, instead of just checking.
