Updated July 09, 2021: We have updated the content below to provide additional clarity. Thank you for your feedback. Lists sync lets you work on your lists offline, improves performance on all kinds of networks, and helps alleviate list throttling. Common operations on lists, such as changing list views, sorting, filtering, and grouping will happen locally and finish quickly even on very large lists. All of these operations will continue to work when you are offline or lose your Internet connection. Once reconnected to the Internet, your edits upload from your device to the cloud and you can resolve merge conflicts, if there are any. The new Lists sync functionality will be on by default for all eligible lists (see https://support.microsoft.com/office/41403c3e-1795-4e07-b56b-ae591cbde2f9 Edit lists offline article for a list of current restrictions) and users will have the option to stop syncing any list. If users delete a list or lose access to a list it will be automatically unsynced from the local device. Lists sync is currently only supported on Windows devices (Windows 10 or later) that have the OneDrive sync app installed. Lists sync is powered by a new general-purpose sync engine that gets packaged, installed, and updated through the OneDrive sync app?s existing update mechanism. The data is stored in a local database under the user?s profile directory and requests are handled through a secure localhost HTTP server. Lists sync runs as a separate background process (Microsoft Nucleus.exe). When Lists sync is on, you?ll see a new icon next to the title of the list.[Key points:]Microsoft 365 https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=searchterms=68809 Roadmap ID 68809Timing: we will begin gradually rolling out the new functionality to Production starting in August 2021 with anticipated completion in September 2021.Rollout: tenant levelControl type: user and admin control Action: review and assess https://support.microsoft.com/office/41403c3e-1795-4e07-b56b-ae591cbde2f9 Edit lists offline https://docs.microsoft.com/SharePoint/lists-sync-policies Use Group Policy to control Lists sync settings
