Project Details Form


 Project Name – Projects are containers for tests on the same location

 Description – (Optional) but it is a good idea to add something here so you can remember exactly what this project is about

 Project Location – This defines the pages that are in scope for the project. Locations can be defined using the Location Manager. Click in the field to select an existing location

 Test Alias – The test Alias is a label used to address the specific project. It is automatically generated by Optimize, but can be edited if necessary

 Test Name – This is where you give your test a name and an optional description. A project may include multiple tests.

Baselines do not offer any facility for variations but they do support pre and post rendering scripting which can be used to load JS functions/ libraries and coded conversions and data capture. Once you have completed the form and you have clicked on the Scripts button you will see the Script Screen.

If you need to add any scripts place them in either the pre-Rendering box , or the Post-Rendering box 


Once you are happy click on the “Conversions”  Link
