Saved sets of goals

Status: Great Idea!

We often re-use the same goals across many experiements.  Being able to save goals in sets would be a nice short cut in new test set up.

Agreed on this front. The goals UI needs some work - being able to filter, sort & search effectively would be a huge gain for anyone that runs more than a handful of tests each month.

Hey Jeremy,


Great Idea.  The way that I've worked around this is setting up a separate project in Optimizely that I call 'Templates".  In this "templates project" I made blank tests for all the pages we tend to run experiments on but set up editor urls, targeting conditions, and goals for the pages.  This way, once you're ready to actually build a test you can simply duplicate it into your main project and everything is ready to go for coding.


Hope this helps!

Hey Josh,

Tempaltes is a great idea, thanks for the tip.

Josh-Biedenweg, That is a genius idea! I will definitely start using that strategy. Thank you for sharing that.

Hello Everyone!


this is an old topic but we recently released a new beta feature called Templates that allows you to save experiments you want to save with the same goals, audiences, variation code etc and have it in a seperate tab and not your main dashboard. For more info you can visit this doc explaining the full feature list. If you would like to be included in the beta please let me know!
