Audience people picker doesn’t display all users/groups

Trying to set audience targetting on a web part but can’t find the user or group you are trying to target in the audience people picker? This can be easily resolved by:

  • Ensuring the group contains a user
  • Logging into SharePoint using that user account and doing some stuff (like uploading a document)
  • Starting a full user profile AD import
  • Starting a full crawl of the People content source
  • Now you should be able to find the user or group in your audience people picker.
