Let's say I want to remove Variation 1 from a running experiment, please how do one accomplish that?

 

You can only "Delete Variant Info", but not delete.Google-Optimize.png

 

Thank you.

I believe that if the experiment is already running, you can't make any changes. You would have to create a new experiment.

 

If the experiment is not yet running, you click the three dots on the right-hand-side to delete the varient.

The three dots on the far right. Click them and find 'Delete'

Thanks, guys.

But these are running experiments.

The best I could come up with it is to stop the experiment, copy it and make any adjustments/changes that I wanted to make.

Thanks a lot.

Another option is to change the experiment weights and set the weight of that variation to 0, which is currently allowed for running experiments.

This will stop new users from been assigned to the variation (but old users will still remain assigned to it).

Hi Noriko, 

 

To delete a variant click on the "more" menu (three vertical dots) then on Delete.
