Creating a test in the Advanced Editor
Creating an ABn test using the Advanced Editor
In the workflow, select “Advanced Editor”.
This will take you to the Advanced Editor Project Details Form
Project Details Form
Project Name – Projects are containers for tests on the same location
Description – (Optional) but it is a good idea to add something here so you can remember exactly what this project is about
Project Location – This defines the pages that are in scope for the project. Locations can be defined using the Location Manager. Click in the field to select an existing location
Manage locations – Click here to generate a new location. Locations can be defined as single or multiple URLs or Regular Expressions to URLs that match a pattern.
Test Alias – The test Alias is a label used to address the specific project. It is automatically generated by Optimize, but can be edited if necessary
Test Details – this moves you on to the next stage
Once you have completed the form and you have clicked on the test details button you will see the Test Details Screen
Test Details Screen
Test Name – Provide a name for your test
Description – (Optional) Once again add a description to make it easier to understand later
Pre-Rendering Script – Click on this button if you want to execute any Jscript across all variations before the page has loaded. For example, you may want to load any coding libraries or define functions that are relied upon when transforming or tracking
Variation – For testing projects a minimum of two variations is required. Each variation will require a name e.g “Control” and “Experiment 2”. You are able to nominate either variation as being the control for reporting by clicking on the radio button.
Variation Script – In this flyout, enter the script to be executed when the visitor is exposed to this variation. Typically this would be the code used to transform the page/ experience.
Post-Rendering Script – In this flyout, enter any additional script to be executed across all variations once the page has loaded. Typically this would contain the script used for tracking visitor engagement.
