IP Filtering from experiment results

I had a client reach out about a test we were running for them with concerns about a particular customer's IP address skewing the test results. We made the decision to filter the customer's IP adress from the results so their abnormally large order size wouldn't make an impact.

 

My question is - does IP filtering work retroactively, or should I always plan to pause and restart the experiment to view the most accurate results?

 

Thank you!

Hey Leah

 

Apparently IP Filtering is indeed retroactive. Check out the answer given by Joel Balmer towards the bottom of this thread:

I needed an answer to the same question earlier this week and finally found this after a deal of searching. Glad you posted this question. Hopefully others will be able to find this answer more easily.

Hey Glynn,

I thought that would be the case, but I had difficulty finding a hard answer. Thanks for your response!
