Is it possible to allow selective users part of a group only to watch the result from cqwp in Sharepoint 2013 on intranet homepage?


You can turn audience targeting on the list. Go back to each of the files and target them to the appropriate audience and then just use one webpart that honors the audience targeting.

You can better idea from steps mentioned in below MSDN article.

Target list or library items to an audience

Please check the content for Target list or library items to an audience in above article.

  • Audience target I had in my mind, but the confusion is what will the CQWP would display for users who are not part of target audience. Will it show an error or customized message – Jason Jul 5 '16 at 23:25
  • If you set target audience in list or library than your CQWP will display only those items to users which are allowed. That's it.. Simple.. – Hardik Jul 6 '16 at 2:51
  • Did you get it working for you? – Hardik Jul 6 '16 at 5:48
  • Not yet, will be testing it next week, as currently working on getting a custom CQWP to display data in Table format from multiple SPS list. – Jason Jul 6 '16 at 23:46
  • Keep me posted here. if you need help than kindly let me know. Thanks for update – Hardik Jul 7 '16 at 2:43
