How this will affect your organization
Similar to taking files offline, people will now be able to sync lists and take them offline so people can continue to work when they have little to no Internet access. The new Lists sync functionality will be on by default for all eligible lists (see the Edit lists offline article for a list of current restrictions) and users will have the option to stop syncing any list.
After Microsoft.SharePoint.exe is installed and running, the sync process begins for users who recently used Microsoft Lists. All eligible lists that are visible from the Lists app (Favorites, My lists, Recent lists) will sync to the device. Users can continue working with their lists through the web app (browser) as before and they can choose to stop syncing individual lists. After an initial sync of an entire list, the sync engine only syncs the changes to the list. As an admin, you’ll be able to control various aspects of Lists sync using the Group Policies outlined in Use Group Policy to control Lists sync settings.
What you need to do to prepare
Evaluate the new functionality and available controls. Prepare your users for how to take advantage of this new functionality and create an adoption plan.
