How to resolve User Profile Synchronization problem in SharePoint 2013?

Dear EE experts,

We would like to ask for tech support on how to resolve user profile synchronization problem in SharePoint 2013, as per attached.
User Profile Service has been started already, under System Settings -> Manage Services on Server.
We reset IIS already using IISRESET, but still same problem...
* In whereas the said group (STE IT) or whatever group that is created already inside SharePoint seems to be unknown...

Please advise, what would be the problem or we missed something...

Thank you and hope to hear soon...

User profile service has nothing to do with SharePoint groups. It is used only for working with active directory groups. The screenshot you have shows audiences, which is totally different than SharePoint groups.

It appears that you want navigation based on SharePoint group permissions. Keep in mind, if a user, person or group does not have access to a site, that site will not be visible to them in navigation. In other words, if you add 10 sites in navigation like shown in your screenshot, and the user has permission to only 4 of those ten, then the user will only see the 4 he has access to.

Hope that helps...

Yes, we know that. We don't want that "Recent" and "Documents" be shown to other users. But we would like to know why this SharePoint Groups has been unknown by the system
