Archive Legacy Goals

Status: Done

Need the ability to archive goals that are outdated or that shouldn't be used for one reason or another. Deleting the goals would be great, except that compromises any past test results that utilized the deleted goal. As it is, I've got a bunch of garbage goals in my goal list that just muddy the water when I need to pick/reuse goals for tests.

Totally agree with this.

 

I deleted a goal a few weeks back. Did not realise that it would kill all the data.

Yes, this would be really useful. Luckily I saved the conversion rates for the specific variants in our testing documentation but it would be really helpful the goals data would still be in Optimizely if you delete a goal.

Concurring, goal list is fast turning into something not manageble. 

 

Hey Optimizely, got any best practice ideas (or feature rollouts) here?

Yep, we'll be working on an archive for goals (and audiences!) soon. Thanks for your patience.

Will be watching for this release. Glad I looked this up before I started deleting all my old goals!

It's been over a month since this has been "in working". When is this expected to be live?

Sorry to leave you hanging there. We still want to get this in but unfortunately had to drop it due to other priorities. We expect to revisit this in the future so hopefully we can build this in soon. In the meantime, I'm changing the status back so as not to mislead anyone.

Hi all, apologies again for the long wait. The good news is that you can now archive goals. We've added a Goals tab to the Home page where you can see all your goals, search within them, and archive as many as you want (pro tip: hold shift to select multiple goals). Archived goals will still preserve all their data.
