I have enabled audience targeting in the SharePoint online site left navigation, then I have entered a new menu link. In the audience targeting text input I can only retrieve the o365 admin security group.

 

I tried to create a new SharePoint group but audience targeting text lookup control can't see the new SharePoint group; even it can't see the SharePoint site owners or visitors group. I can only specify the security group from o365 admin.

 

Is this the correct functionality or am I missing something?? Why I can't use a SharePoint group?

Hi, SharePoint groups are not at the moment supported for audience targeting as per - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/target-navigation-news-and-files-to-specific-audiences-33...

 

Specifically as shown below.
