By default, topics are visible to All Users, which means that all members can see the topic under Discover and access the content published to the topic.
Targeting a topic to one or more audience limits which members can see the topic under Discover and controls which users can access content in the targeted topic even if they have a direct link to the content. Targeting a topic is like setting permission for access to all content within that topic.
Examples of how to use targeted topics:
- Drive engagement by surfacing content that is most relevant to employee audiences
- Ensure private information remains with required audiences
- Streamline your topics & content delivery
Target a Topic
- Sign in to Studio.
- Open the Topic page by selecting Configure from the menu on the left of Studio and navigate to the Topics tile.
To create a new topic, select + Topic in the top right.
To edit an existing topic, select the three dots to the right of the topic name and choose Edit.
- Under Target, start typing the name of the audience in the Audience field or snapshot audience, or select an audience from the results list. You can add more than one audience.
- Select Save to apply changes.
If all targeted audiences are removed, the topic will default to being available to All Registered Users.
If there are multiple targeted audiences, members only need to be part of at least one audience in order to see the topic and the content in the topic.
Unarchiving an audience will automatically re-target any topics to that audience that were previously targeted.
Only public topics (ie. not targeted to an audience) can be recommended. If a topic is targeted to one or more audiences, and the 'Recommend follow' option is selected, an error will be displayed when saving changes to the topic.
Additional details about creating and editing topics are outlined in this article.
