Restart behavior and client notifications for O365 updates

Since we had to find a solution we opend a Microsoft Call. Finaly Microsoft provided an Update for SCCM to solve this issue. Here you can find it:

Update rollup 2 for System Center Configuration Manager current branch, version 1710

The Configuration Manager client forces a shutdown of Office 365 applications when updates are applied if the installation deadline has approached.

After you install this update, the client will require a restart of the computer if Office 365 applications are running at the installation deadline.
