Audience Question

  Asked By: Gregory    Date: Jan 27    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 912

We are getting ready to deploy MOSS 2007 in our company. I've been
given the direction by management to place a "Task" web part on our
global home page. The "Task" web part would contain any/all task for
the individual employee loggen in via AD.

My questions are;

Do I need to add a "Task" web part for each individual and assign an
audience of that individual? We have over 2500 employees world wide so
that would mean 2500+ "Task" web parts on the home page.

If this is the only way to accomplish what management wants, what is
the particle limits of how many web parts a page should contain
without affecting the load speed of a page?

I'm thinking that if a script can be written that applies the Audience
as a variable based on the AD login, I could get away by just adding
one "Task" web part. Has anyone tried this before?

I haven't tried this but my guess is No, you don't need audiences.

We have developed 2003 web parts to display user-specific data and
sharepoint appears to honor security in them without doing anything
special. I would expect only the user's own tasks would display by
default. MOSS is undoubtedly the same in that respect (it ofers more
granularity in security than 2003)
