Didn't manually activate and still got results
I ran an experiment by using BucketVisitor to set the visitor into an experiment segment. The problem is that the experiment was set to manual activation and I didn't manually activate the experiment on the page however I still am getting results. How is that possible?
Thank you for reaching out to Optimizely!
When you are using manual activation it is not always necessary to place the API call on your website. The API call can be placed in for instance another experiment. This way an experiment can be actitvated without placing the API call on your website.
