Before you perform this procedure, confirm that:

  • You have read the topic Manage audiences.

  • Your system is running either the Standard or Enterprise version of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007.


    Audiences managers must have read access to the Shared Services Provider (SSP) administration site, and must have the Manage Audiences permission enabled.

Each audience must be compiled before content can be targeted to that audience. Audience managers can schedule compilation for all audiences so that it happens automatically for all audiences.
