Pausing Experiment and restarting them at a later date

Hi Guys,

I have a quick question regarding Experiments. If you have an experiment running, and you wish to pause the experiment for a period of time, and then start the experiment again, how would you do that? I have an experiment that I want to pause today, and resume on Monday.

Would it be as simple as changing the end date to when you wish to pause the experiment, and then changing the experiment end date to a further date when you want it to start again? Or is it more complicated than that?

Hi Roy,

Stopping the experiment doesn't give you an option to resume it again. Hence the only way to do it is to change the end date to an earlier date and changing it back when you like to resume.
