Overview of User Redirect Configuration Tool Pane

Overview of User Redirect Configuration Tool Pane

User Redirect displays the list of users, allowing the administrator to define redirect paths. When a user accesses a page in SharePoint, the web part redirects the user to the specified destination URL if the user is on the redirect list. A different redirect page can be identified for each specified user. With User Redirect, you can have pages that are restricted for most users but allow certain users to access them.

After User Redirect is added to the page, you have three configuration decisions to make:

  1. Determine if you want to allow or restrict access for selected user(s)
  2. Identify users to be allowed or restricted
  3. Identify the page to which users will be redirected.

To customize User Redirect, edit the web part.
The tool pane is displayed on the right side of the screen:
