Updated on

This article covers how to edit an audience.

  • If you need assistance editing an audience, contact your campus LMS administrator (link to the campus contact article) before editing.
  • Best practice to ensure changing the audience will update the users in the audience, take note of the number of users before and after editing the audience rules. See How to Update and View Audience Members article for how to view the number of users in an audience.
  • Audiences group users together based on rules and rule sets.
  • Organizations, Jobs, and other user attributes can be leveraged for audiences.
  • Audiences use the naming convention AUDI as part of their audience code.
  • CSU's best practice is to use audiences as the criteria for assignments (Management > Audiences within the Learning Activity).
  • Use audiences to make learning content available to the right people (Registration > Audiences within the Learning Activity).

If you are interested in learning more about the different rule sets available, please refer to the Audience and Rule Set Definitions documentation
