2 AB Tests that have goals that cross

What are the issues with running two tests that use the same goals? Are there any? 

 

Does it double count in the results dashboards?

The results or conversions from one experiment will not be reflected in that of another. Each experiment is indendpent from any others, meaning they have their own conversions that fire off. If a visitor is somehow allocated into both experiments and triggers the goal for both, the conversion will be attributed to each experiment separately.  To learn more about viewing conversions and understanding how they are tracked, check out this KB section on checking goal firing: https://help.optimizely.com/QA_and_Troubleshoot/Troubleshooting:_Goals_don't_track_correctly#Before_...
