Audience Question

  Asked By: Grayson    Date: Sep 09    Category: MOSS    Views: 663

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?

Audience should not be used to achieve this. A couple of
alternative options spring to mind:

1. Use a filter on the task list that limits the tasks assigned to [me]
2. Use the My Tasks Web Part (unsure of the name but it is the Web Part
available on My Sites) to show all the authenticated users tasks within
the Site Collection
