  • The way that this will work is as follows: -

    • You have a certain number of groups that you want to show different content too.
    • You have one homepage
    • You'll add all the content that you want each audience to see to the same homepage/x.aspx.  From an administrator's view it'll look messy
    • You assign the relevant audiences to your web parts.  Say, you have three Content Editor Web Parts with different greetings for each group.  Tagging each one with a different audience profile will ensure that the members of different audiences will only see the one web part.

    It should be noted that this doesn't act as an authentication channel.  It's just a visibility/presentation layer.

  • Have you considered audiences?  You have the same homepage for all groups but they'll be shown different web parts / content depending upon what audience they're in.

  • Ok. that sounds good, but they still going to same homepage with diffrent content? is it possible to target one site to driversgroup, and after login they see transportation site. That audience thing only show targeted list, librarys or webparts? Sorry for bad english : )

  • Or do you mean that the homepage is the same for drivers (same url) but the content of that page is different. If i add example new webpart or list in toplevel site and make that visible only for driver-audience, is the page still looking same for other users without changing its content?

    But hmm.. thats a littlebit tricky cause content they need is in the subsites.

  • If you just need to show different content to the different groups then Steven's suggestion is the way to go.  Then the "Drivers" content would just have links in it that take them to their sub site.

    If, however, you would just prefer to re-direct drivers to a sub-site you could do this with managed code or even some jQuery that would check the groups of the logged in user, and if the user belongs to the Driver's group redirect them to the Driver's sub-site.   So, when the Drivers went to the top level site, it would redirect them automatically to their sub-site. 

    Good luck,
    Mark
