How to Change the Base for Calculation?

Last updated

During a test, different variations of a webpage are compared against a base version (which is usually the control). The improvement or success of any variation is calculated in relation to the control. By changing the base for a test, you are changing the reference against which you would be comparing the success or failure of your variations.

  1. Sign in to VWO and then select the test that for which you want to change the base.
  2. In the test details section, click Detailed Report and then select the Goals
  3. Go to the end of the Reports page and then click the Settings icon for the variation you want to change as base.
  4. Select Use for calculations
