Getting the Product Version for SharePoint Online

sharepoint-online

Microsoft may patch or update SharePoint Online with minimal warning or notification. That’s the benefit and risk of a cloud service… you’re always on the latest and greatest and all upgrade costs are bundled into your monthly payment. But, it also means that sometimes things change and you need to start troubleshooting.

I hit an issue recently with a vendor’s migration product. Because SharePoint Online had been patched recently and the version number incremented we had to install the latest updates in order to have connectivity. Here’s how you can check the version number yourself.
