Avoid Googel Analytics tracking while testing experiment.

Is it okay to deactivate the Google Analitics integration while testing an experiment or is there a smarter way?
I think the contra of this method is that all other experiments in this project stopps tracking, so I wonder what´s best practice.

Could you provide a little more context into what you mean by "deactivate" GA for testing?

Typically the GA integration is on a per experiment level, so if you disable it on one experiment, it shouldn't affect any others.

But to answer your point, yes its absolutely fine to disable it when testing.

I mean "disable" on a experiment, like you mentioned in your post.

Thanks.
