Uncompiled audiences message in user profiles in SharePoint admin center in SharePoint Online

Uncompiled audiences message in user profiles in SharePoint admin center in SharePoint Online

In this post, we will discuss the Uncompiled audiences message which appears in SharePoint admin center in SharePoint Online. If you are trying to use audience targeting in SharePoint online then we have to create audience first in SharePoint admin center. You need to be an Office 365 global administrator to manage audiences. If you create a new audience then the audience compilation should be completed to make it work.

The message comes like below:

Also, you can read:

Add use custom action to list ECB menu in SharePoint Online using JavaScript object model

Even if a user you have added or deleted from an audience then audience compilation is must, then only the changes will reflect.

In SharePoint 2016 or SharePoint 2013 central admin, there is an option to Compile Audience immediately,

But in Office 365 SharePoint online it does not happen immediately. It may take up to 7 days. But it will be completed before one or two days also.


If it did not happen in 7 days then you have to contact Office 365 technical support team. You can check the Official Support article.

Hope this will be helpful.
