Dashboard that fits on a tablet screen

Status: New
by ilincev ‎06-25-2015 June 25, 2015

When I look at the home screen and resulst on a ipad (landscape orientation), it does not fit the screen and I have to scroll horizontally. Even when I do, I am not able to see the sidebar with the experiment details.

Supposedly, this should be an easy fix with media queries.


When I am correct: user are unbucketed from a variation of an experiment when experiment is 'paused'.

Promblem is when you restart the experiment they can get into a different variant then the one they were originally in, making the experiment in-valid.

So, my proposal is to keep users bucketed in the same variant even when expermint is paused/restarted again, and un-bucket users once the experiment gets archived.

(see info in ticket Request #99731).


Make it possible to delete Projects

Hi Guys,


at the moment it is not possible to delete projects.


Once setup we cannot remove them from our dashboard.


Please give us the easy feature to be able to remove obsolete or unwanted, unused projects

from our account.




Saved Goal List Filtering

Status: New
by MJBeisch Level 2 ‎05-26-2015 May 26, 2015

I'm at the point with some of my clients where I have 50+ goals set up for them. It gets somewhat tedious having to scroll through that big list every time I want to add a saved goal to a new experiment. It would be really nice if the "Saved Goals" selection dialog had a text box that filtered the list (based on goal name) of goals based on what you type into it. Also maybe checkboxes/tabs for each of the goal types (pageview, click, event).


It might be cool if you guys had a place for users to tell you where there were bugs or innacuracies in Optiverse and the developer portal. That way we can help you to keep it up to date :-)  




For example: when you use browser search (Ctrl F) on the developer site (once you are in one of the sections) the header gets messed up. I'd attach a screenshot, but it doesn't look like I can. Essentially, big text appears overlapping the logo area. This happens for me in Chrome and IE, but not Safari. Not a big deal, but something I noticed and thought I would pass on.

Referral exclusions (for payment providers)

Status: New
by StanR ‎04-15-2015 April 15, 2015

Maybe this has been said before.


Optimizely does not allow for referral exclusions. This means having an external payment provider completely destroys any channel data within the Optimizely interface. I argue that this makes transaction analyses on a source/medium level virtually impossible for a large part of the e-commerce parties.
The only way to reliably measure your channels in tests is via GA. Which should not be the default.
Optimizely and GA cookie gather data in the same way, but treat it differently
user 1:  - session 1: [google / cpc] 
              - session 2: [direct / none] - [ / referral]                      // Buckaroo is a payment provider.
user 2:  - session 1: [google / organic]
              - session 2; [affiliate1 / refferal] - [buckaroo / referral]                      
Both GA and Optimizely would measure 3 sessions per user based on the normal cookie configuration. For user 1 this would be cpc, direct and referral. For user 2; organic, affiliate and referral. This last referral is not a separate session, but a payment provider needed for transactions on the website. 
In GA we can add Buckaroo to the referral exclusions, so it does not overwrite the original source medium. However, we wish to execute more simple tests within the Optimizely interface in stead of GA. Here a transaction is always attributed to referral, thus losing all channel data for transactions.



An option to Disable Proxy by default to all the project experiments instead of keep on adding " &optimizely_disable_proxy=true" at the end of the url of the Experiment Editing Page


URL Targeting Groups

Status: New
by ‎03-24-2015 March 24, 2015



For a lot of my tests I run them across the same page URL targeting options but I have to keep copying them into each test.


It would be good if I could create url targeting groups/conditions that I can just click to apply to my test rather than having to copy all the URLs into each test.


Not sure if this is something that others may also find useful.


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.





Status: Great Idea!

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.
