MC256837 – Updated June 30, 2021: Microsoft has updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
This release will allow users to now share Microsoft Lists using the same sharing links that they have been using for files and folders.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 81965
When this will happen
Microsoft will begin rolling this out at the end of July (previously mid-May) and expect to complete at the end of August (previously late June).
How this will affect your organization
Users can now share entire lists using sharing links. The experience is identical to the sharing links experiences that are supported for files and folders. The same admin controls that apply to sharing files and folders will also apply to lists and list items.
What you need to do to prepare
You might want to notify your users about this new capability and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
