Hi, 

 

I started an experiment in google optimize. I used the URL as q condition to target only some pages.

It turns out I forgot to exclude one URL from my conditions. 

 

Is it possible to add change the target in a running experiment or I need to stop and experiment, make a copy, add a condition and start it over again (and loose my previous data)?

 

Thanks in advance

Eduardo

As far as I can see, in the free version of Google Optimize (IMO, the same goes for Optimize 360), you'll need to stop the experiment, copy it (or create a new one) and start it again.

 

The only thing you can change once the experiment has started is to change Percentage of visitors to target and Weighting of visitors to target.

Yes Eduardo, you need to stop the experiment, make the copy and add the condition per your requirement, unfortunately. 

 

Best,
