What happens when new components/system metrics are added to audience-specific pages?

If a subscriber hasn't set up their subscription preferences they'll automatically be subscribed to any new components/system metrics.

If a subscriber has already changed their subscription preferences, they will not automatically be added to new components/system metrics. You will need to edit the audience-specific group or user under Audience to give them access to the new component/system metric.
