Updated June 15, 2020: Based on learnings from our early rings, we have made the decision to make additional changes to the code before we proceed with the rollout. Please see the updated roll-out timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
SharePoint site owners will soon be able to filter navigational links to specific audiences by using audience targeting.
- We’ll be gradually rolling this out to Targeted Release customers at the end of March.
- The roll-out will be complete for all customers by the end of June
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 34251.How does this change affect me?
Site owners will see the toggle setting to enable audience targeting when editing the site, hub, or footer navigation. Once turned on, site owners and editors can target the specific navigation links to be filtered to specific audiences.
Audience targeting benefits:
- Enables site owners to create more engaging experiences.
- Accelerates productivity by bringing targeted, high value resources into focus.
- Simplifies the viewing experience for users by removing distractions from content they don’t need.
Only site owners can turn audience targeting on and off. Once turned on, any site editor can target menu links to specific audiences using Office 365 Groups or security groups.
What do I need to do to prepare for this change?
Control of this feature rests with SharePoint site owners. You might consider updating your end user training and documentation.
