A project is a way of creating a subsection in your Optimizely account. Each project has its own snippet, set of experiments, and set of collaborators. Projects are designed to help you organize your experiments across multiple sites (or different sections of large sites). The hierarchy of experiment organization looks like this:
With projects, you can group your experiments in ways that make sense for your organization. For example, if you run experiments on multiple domains, you can assign a unique project for each domain. You can also invite other users to collaborate on a project without allowing them complete access to your account. Want to see how to manage projects? Watch this short video.
Add a project
To create a new project:
Click the project list icon ()next to your project name.
Click New Project at the bottom of your list of projects.
The number of projects available to you varies by plan type. If you already have the maximum number of active projects for your plan and want to add another, you need to archive one of your existing projects. To learn more about what’s available for different plans, please refer to our Optimizely Classic packages matrix.

Archive and un-archive projects

Click the Archive button in the right-sidebar.
Once archived, the project status will change from Active from Archived. To un-archive, click the Unarchive button in the right sidebar.
