Office 365 - Report Build Numbers

Is there a way to get the build number of office to report thru PDQ Inventory? 
I get the "Application Version" (in my case it's 16.0.13801.20864) but trying to translate that to Microsoft's version/build is difficult (I haven't been able to find a table for it yet). 

In the help menu of any of the Office apps, you can view the version and build (in my case, the application version above is actually Version 2101 build 13801.21004)

  • Office 2016 is a version of the Office productivity suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc).
    Office 365 is a cloud-based subscription to a suite of programs including Office 2016.

    I am looking this little different, if you have same office subscription for all company, then what's the point? Just update all to same version. At least my whole PDQ point is standardization.

    Take the latest build version from Update history for Microsoft 365 and make Inventory collection (Latest and Old etc)

    "Contains" because we have different languages for office install

    e.g. spanish version is Aplicaciones de Microsoft 365 para empresas - es-es

    or Variable (then you have only one thing to update every week)

    Change channel to Current with Deploy (or you seem to have semi annual channel?)

    "%programfiles%\Common Files\microsoft shared\ClickToRun\OfficeC2RClient.exe" /changesetting Channel=Current

    Force Update Office 365 Latest and Install (using when nobody logged in)

    "%programfiles%\Common Files\microsoft shared\ClickToRun\OfficeC2RClient.exe" /update user displaylevel=false forceappshutdown=true

    Only Update Office 365 Latest (when user is currently logged in)

    "%programfiles%\Common Files\microsoft shared\ClickToRun\OfficeC2RClient.exe" /update user displaylevel=false forceappshutdown=false

    have phun!
