AirDrop for Non ICloud Use

I can not access iCloud at all on my work system. Syncing of drafts ergo isn’t important to me but I would love to be able to use the Mac version when it ships. Will the Mac version allow for airdropping or drafts and use without iCloud when it ships? I haven’t been able to test the beta because of this. Notes does a really nice job with Airdrop. Thanks.
