I frequently re-use code pieces when setting up experiments, and I'm sure many other people do as well. I often find myself wanting to grab some code that I've written for an older, completed experiment but am unable to because the page that the experiment runs on no longer loads in the editor. Maybe the page is gone, maybe the Optimizely project code was removed from it, etc. I'd like to be able to get at the variation code in that situation.

 

I know I could maybe do a workaround by putting a different page into the editor, but even that won't work if the project code is no longer on the page.

Sorry, I don't think we're likely to support this, but you can always use the API to grab the variation code from pages that don't load anymore!

Currently, you can't access the web editor for an archived experiment from the dashboard unless you first un-archive the experiment. However, you CAN access the web editor for an archived experiment without un-archiving it if you first go to the results page for that experiment and then click the "Edit Experiment" button. I'd like to see the web editor access restriction from the dashboard removed. It seems unnecessary, especially considering that you can get to it anyway through a circuitious route Smiley Tongue

Can you please explain why you don't want to just unarchive the experiment? Are you just trying to look up old variation code to use? Perhaps you can use the experiments API instead: http://developers.optimizely.com/

Project Level Default Editor Settings

Hello.

 

I have a project specifically set up for a mobile version of a website so it would be a small time saver if for every experiment i set up under that project, the editor would default to a mobile view.

 

Thanks,

Andy

add images via API

Status: Great Idea!
by Arun Level 2 ‎03-19-2015 March 19, 2015

To speed up our development cycle we push up experiments and variations through the API. That's all well and good for JS & CSS but for images we have to go through a few more steps (adding the image to a variation and then getting the URL to use in our code). If there was an API wasy to add images to the variation or even a simple UI to upload images to CDN and get the URL that would save some steps.

 

Thanks,

Hi Arun, this is a great idea and we've discussed adding an asset library (with an API) to make this process easier.  Will follow up with you individually to discuss in more detail.

 

Best,

John
