Multiple users roaming between 3 computers

I have a Domain Controller running Windows Server 2016.  I also have (3) Windows 10 Pro computers as part of the domain.  I have (21) users that need to roam between these (3) computers.  As part of their profile, they will be using Outlook for the mail messaging system.
Question: Can someone let me know the best strategy and send me a step by step on how to accomplish this?

Easiest method is roaming profiles: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc977964.aspx

Another option is redirected folders, which is applied with a group policy.

Question: I have created the Shared Roaming folder on the server.  When I create the user, does that user need Admin rights?  In other words do I copy the Administrator from the users folder?  Or can they be placed in an OU?  Then add the path for the Shared Roaming folder.

Each user should have their own profile.
You would need to use the office ADMX and alter the location where outlook stores its PST file.
The default is %userprofile%\appdata\local and this would lead to the user to lose the file
altering the storage to %userprofile%\appdata\roaming\ will benefit from the redirect folder, as this will fall within the appdata folder....

if still unclear: no admin rights are needed.
