Manage projects in Optimizely X Web

This article is about Optimizely X Web. If you're using Optimizely Classic, check this article out instead.
 
relevant products:

THIS ARTICLE WILL HELP YOU:
  • Create and manage Projects and Experiments
  • Add, remove, duplicate, and archive Projects or Experiments

Once you start using Optimizely, you'll have a growing number of experiments and campaigns to manage. Projects help you keep everything organized.

Projects let you subdivide your Optimizely account into little territories: for different sections of a website, multiple sites, or different products. (If you're using Optimizely X Full Stack, projects work a little differently.)

Each project has its own: Optimizely snippet, set of experiments, and set of collaborators.
