Folder Redirection / Offline Files GPO

I am creating an GPO where certain folders are redirected to a folder on a server and was wondering if this policy and it's settings are valid:
new gpo -> Computer Configuration -> Policies -> Administrative Templates -> Network -> Offline Files -> Administratively assigned offline files: Enabled.
FIles and Folders: Show... \\Servername\Users\%USERNAME%

I have a shared folder named Users and inside of this folder every Authenticated User who logs into the Domain has various folders redirected into the Users folder/Username folder (I.E \\Servername\Users\jdoe\Documents

Is  "\\Servername\Users\%USERNAME%" a valid setting or do i need to itemize every single person who logs in individually into this policy?

IE:
\\Servername\Users\jdoe\
\\Servername\Users\rschleply
\\Servername\Users\alincoln
etc

To answer your questions in nutshell:
1) Yes this setting is valid.
2) \\Servername\Users\%USERNAME% is OK.

However, I would suggest please read below mentioned link for Offline files:

It's a good insight & you can make more sense out of it as you have not mentioned your environment.
