Add deployment of Office 365 Business apps (Not just ProPlus)
Currently you can use Intune to deploy O365 ProPlus with ease but this does not work for O365 Business. It would be good to see the same functionality for O365 Business as recently the Office 365 Configuration Tool has been discontinued it is now proving very difficult to deploy O365 Business with Intune.

Deploying Office 365 Business via XML (config.office.com) via Intune (MSFT Endpoint Manager) is not possible. It seems to work and installs O365Business (see control panel > programs) but if you use Word or Excel it shows ProPlus. So we from Deutsche Telekom, who are setting up M365Business for small customers, need to deploy O365Business via XML via Intune (MSFT Endpoint Manager) and not installing it manually.

Yes, we would like to use Intune, but we have Office 365 Business, and it's not worth the extra ongoing license cost to upgrade only for the convenience of managing our deployments with Intune. Sure it will save me a boatload of time, but management won't see it that way.
One can't also install Teams along with Office when deploying it via Intune with ODT generated XML. Because installing Office directly via Intune is installing ProPlus and there is no selection to choose Microsoft 365 Business version.
