One of the best things about A/B testing and website optimization is that you can run multiple experiments at the same time. With overlapping and targeted experiments, it can be hard to know what a user is actually seeing on the page. That’s why we’re excited to introduce “Preview As,” a new feature within Optimizely Preview that allows you to impersonate a visitor to your website and see the page through their eyes.
“Preview As” allows you to set up a custom visitor profile with targeted attributes and view your website as if you were that visitor. This makes it easy to:
QA your experiments to make sure targeting is set up properly
View all the experiments visitors to your site would see based on any targeting criteria
Here’s how it works:
