This is a knowledgebase item. Hope it helps you out with how to get the offline Company Portal App

Why offline-licensed apps?

Offline-licensed apps offer an alternative to online apps, and provide additional deployment options. Some reasons to use offline-licensed apps are:

  • You don’t have access to Microsoft Store services – If your employees don’t have access to the Internet and Microsoft Store services, downloading offline-licensed apps and deploying them with imaging is an alternative to online-licensed apps.
  • You use imaging to manage devices in your organization – Offline-licensed apps can be added to images and deployed with Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM), or Windows Imaging and Configuration Designer (ICD).
  • Your employees do not have Azure Active Directory (AD) accounts – Azure AD accounts are required for employees that install apps assigned to them from Microsoft Store or that claim apps from a private store.
