a) Audiences are essentially a type of filter - they are not meant for real
security. There is no document  level security in Wss or SPS. There are 3rd
party products that do provide this as part of their larger solutions.

I didn't get the idea when you said "audience is a type of filter". Can
you please enlarge this...

yeah he is right no document  level security but yeah
you can secure the complete document libraries and
related stuff by only targeting to a particular

Answer #4    Answered By: Irene Moss     Answered On: Jan 17

That is incorrect - audiences are not security. Any user with permissions can
get content regardless of their audience  by just going to a view  that doesn't
use audiences. They are a filter - meaning you can apply the audience to filter
a view, but it doesn't secure the underlying content.

When you say you can use an audience  to filter a view  - are you saying
you can target  a view to a particular audience or the actual listview
Web Part?

I'm saying that any audience-aware web part (the listview being one) can be made
to display only to the audience  in question. Other web parts and and access
methods (WebDav, etc) will show the items regardless of audience. This is why
Audiences are not real security...

Ok, I can target  a ListView Web Part that is diplaying list information
via a specific view  to specific audiences, but what I am questioning is
there a way to target a particular view in a ListView Web Part instead
of the Web Part itself?

Consider this:
1 list 10 different views
I have 10 audiences and I want each to see 1 specific view by default.
I can have 10 ListView Web Parts each set to a specific view and each
Web Part targeted to the appropriate audience.

Are you saying there is a way to have 1 ListView Web Part with 10 views
and target the specific view to a specific audience? To my knowledge it
is not possible to do this. I am just clarifying this point.

I am not aware of a way to do that, no.
