You could help yourself by reading the docs.

The templates are not able to access the internet - this is a security
feature. They can access the upstream proxy and can download software
using that route. You can change this setting, but it introduces risks.

Open Software from Fedora-23 template and search for office. That works
for me.
Alternatively, open a terminal and use fedora tools:
sudo dnf install libreoffice

There is no need to download packages and copy them to the template.
If you DO want to do this then read the docs-
