Audiencing Redirects

I needed to redirect certain users from the homepage of my site to another page, but other users needed to see the homepage.

I thought audiencing a Content Editor webpart (CEWP) with a JavaScript redirect script would work, but couldn’t find any related blog entries.  I ended up trying it out and it did work.

Some (related) caveats:

  • Audiencing is not security
  • Because the redirect is to the homepage only, other pages that users have links to and that they have the rights to access would obviously not be affected
  • Related to the above, links provided in alerts, workflows, etc. would still work.
