Sandbox Testing Enviornment
I'm going to start filtering for bots.
However I'd like to continue tracking using our existing methodology, and leverage a sandbox or test environment to compare our current stats to the bot-filtered stats.
Is there a way to set up a sandbox that will mirror our current account settings, within which we can filter bots, that does not require any new event tags on the site.

You might consider to set up an additional Analytics view as sandbox using include filters for your new methodology. If successful, you can adapt it in your main view as exclude filters afterwards.
