Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

About once a month or so, someone asks questions about how to move all users into the winning variation.

 

Currently, when an experiment is over and it is time to declare a winner, to make everyone see the "winning" variaiton, we do the following:

1- clone the experiment

2- in the clone, set the winning variation to 100%

3- pause the original

4- start the clone

5- wait for dev to integrate the winning experience into the site's baseline

6- pause the clone

 

I propose the creation of a "Declare Winner" option that would effectively accomplish steps 1, 2, 3, and 4.

It would set the winning variation to 100% and would force users bucketed into any other variation into the winner.

 

(There may be other considerations regarding dashboard indicators, etc.)

Thanks for the feedback! You're right that the current process of launching a winner is pretty cumbersome. We're working on a better workflow for iterating through experiments and launching the winner, stay tuned for more on that in the next few months.
