How do I delete a variation in Classic?

How do I delete a variation in Classic?

The experiment hasn't started yet. We decided not to run one of the variations. I set traffic allocation to 0% for that variation but would rather delete it entirely since it won't be used.

On the Variation tab (top right) click on the down arrow, and select "Delete Variation".

 

See attached screenshot.

And how do we do that in Optimizely X?

In "draft" mode, you can delete it using the controls in the ellipses in the variation's row.

In "paused" or "running" mode, you set the traffic allocation to 0.

Re: How do I delete a variation in Classic?

Hi @JasonDahlin,

Thanks for the response! Is it possible to suggest a feature to allow deletion or make the variation invisible in running/paused mode?

I keep forgetting that one variation isn't used anymore and I cannot reorder them either to modify the one that is working.

Thanks,

hi @lypolyzo,

Post the idea into "product ideas".

Pretty sure this has been brought up before and they don't support it due to how it changes results or something.
