We now have audience targeting enabled on our tenant, however our requirement is for anyone to be able to pick audiences in an intuitive way. The current modern experience template a) requires that you open the "Page properties" tab, and b) select by input as opposed to check-boxes.
This isnt really a good solution for us, as the "page properties" tab is not a particularly obvious place for people to be able to pick the right audiences. Also, without providing a pre-defined selection of audiences, users can potentially pick ANY audience which includes a mix of sharepoint groups, AD groups and distribution groups. In short, it's far too confusing for the average person to target a page to an appropriate audience.
So my questions are:
Can the page properties be made more obvious in this template?
Can the audience targeting of pages be restricted to a pre-defined list of audiences (such as those we've imported as managed metadata)
Unfortunately, the answer to both questions is No and the best thing you can do here is check if those ideas are already on SharePoint User Voice and vote for them...if they are not there, post them so other people can vote
