THIS ARTICLE WILL HELP YOU:
  • Share draft variations and experiences with stakeholders

When you QA an experiment or campaign, you may want to show the changes you've made with internal stakeholders. Use the Share Link feature to share unpublished variations and experiences.

  1. Navigate to the specific variation or experience that you'd like to share.

  2. Click the Preview dropdown and select Share Link.

    You will see an overlay that allows you to copy or open the link.

  3. Copy and share the link to show the variation or experience to others.

If you update content in the experiment after generating the share link, your changes will be reflected when others use the link to view the experiment.

Sharing via QR Code

The Share Link feature can also generate a QR code, which many smartphone and tablet apps can scan using the device's camera. Internal stakeholders can then easily review variation from their mobile device's browser.

  1. Navigate to the specific variation or experience that you'd like to share.

  2. Click the Preview dropdown and select Share Link.

    You will see an overlay that allows you to copy or open the link.

  3. Use your preferred app to scan the QR code on the computer screen.

Depending on your QR code scanning app (we like Scan and QR Code Reader & Barcode Scanner), it may immediately open the URL in an app or allow you to copy and paste it into your browser.

The Share link feature will only let you view the changes on the specific page you are previewing in the visual editor. Assuming you are making changes to multiple pages you will need to use the appropriate link or QR code of that specific page.
