Can we have separate "default home pages" for each audiences?

  Asked By: Payal    Date: Aug 14    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1544

We have a requirement, in which we have certain number of Audiences.
Each Audience should have a separate default home page. Is it
possible to do this in SPS v 2?

Also, if a user belongs to 2 or 3 audience groups, then when this
user logn in, which default page he sees? (since each audience has
its own default page)?
Can we change the order of default pages in case the user belongs to
2 or more audiences?

Also, is it posible to set different home pages to each individual

Only web parts are controlled by audiences, not pages. Individual web parts
can be shown/hidden depending on a user's audience  membership, and the News
For You and Links For You web parts display links to content that have been
targeted to particular audiences.

If you don't want to hit users over the head with too much information on
the main portal page, design it so that they only see web parts and
information relevant to them. You may also want to have the users go to
their My Site instead, since that's an ideal spot to show only what they
"need to know", plus their own personal stuff they can keep there.
