Cookied visitors, pausing and resuming

 

If an experiment is paused, will cookied visitors see the same variation if the experiment resumes, or will they be see a new variation?

 

They won't be excluded from any experiments from then, surely.

 

Thanks.

Hi @cazwilson,

They will see the same variation when you un-pause the experiment.

 

Technica stuff: The cookied value persists until the user visits the site after you have archived or deleted the experiment.

Yes they will still bucketed into that variation.

On a side note, if your business has the practice of first launching the experiment at 10%, then to a full 100% traffic allocation it is best to duplicate the experiment.
