  • Hi,

    New audience rules enable audiences managers to change the membership of an existing audience, either to focus on a smaller group of users or to expand the number of targeted users. Audiences managers add audience rules when it is not possible to edit an existing rule to achieve the same effect.

    Adding audience rules is a good practice in the following situations:

    ·           New value for the User operand: You are targeting an audience by membership or reporting structure, and you want to add users in a different distribution list or reporting to a different manager.

    ·           New operator for the User operand: You are currently targeting by reporting structure and want to target by membership in a distribution list.

    ·           New operand: You are currently targeting an audience by membership or reporting structure, and you want to expand or reduce the membership based on a user profile property.

    ·           New Property operand: You are targeting an audience based on one property and you want to expand or reduce the membership based on an additional property.

    Hope it helps.

  • if you want users to to have read only access to a particular site, site collection, list or any item within sharepoint you must grant them permissions within the parent location with read permissions. no audience is needed for this.

    For audiences are used when you want to display or target items directly to that group of read only users, then yes you need an audience.

    however don't use audiences to control permissions.
