Increase the Power of Audiences with New Criteria and Data Types

Now you can target audiences based on the standard and custom permissions assigned to your users. For example, create an audience of moderators by selecting all users with the "Moderate Communities Feeds" permissions. You can also use extra field data types when creating audiences based on fields on the user object. We added currency, multipicklist, and date.

Where: This change applies to Lightning communities accessed through Lightning Experience and Salesforce Classic in Essentials, Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer editions.

Why: You can choose any standard or custom permissions assigned to the user through the user profile or permission sets. Permission criteria is especially useful if you control back-end functionality using permissions as you can now create a corresponding front-end experience.
