The "Main Property" and its importance for targeting
On the target audiences tab you will also find the ability to set a main property:
The main property selector allows to activate one of the listed properties to be the deciding factor for selecting targeted designs as well as targeted quicklinks / applications. The shown properties are all default Azure AD properties of users. This means that when "officeLocation" is selected, the user's AD property officeLocation's value will be used to determine certain targeting aspects of ahead, for example targeted designs.
Once a main property is active, you can start creating targeted designs, by adding designs and associating with them concrete property values. Those values are extracted from your Azure AD and are a daily snapshot of the values currently in use across your ahead userbase for the selected AD property.
You can learn more about defining targeted designs in the article about changing the ahead design.
This premium feature lets you target your workforce based on user properties when publishing a news. We sync the user properties you would like to use for advanced targeting to ahead. Then your editors can create news and specify who should be targeted based on these properties and their values. For example, editors can target a news to all users with the 'city' property set to 'Berne'.
How do I setup advanced targeting?
Once the premium feature is enabled, on the target audiences tab you find a new section called Advanced target audiences. There you can add new user properties that you would like your editors to be able to use.
When you save your selection, we import the necessary data from your AD. This takes a moment. You'll be notified when it's completed.
How do I manage advanced targeting?
In the target audiences tab you see a list of the AD properties you selected. There, you can give each property a more user friendly name. You also see how many unique values we found for a certain user property in your AD, across your ahead user base. You can have a look at all the different values that users have in their profiles.
Make sure that the values are well-maintained in your AD so that editors in ahead can make the best use of them. Avoid duplicates, typos, values in different languages, unused values, etc.
You can also remove a previously selected property.
