How to Delete a Variation

Last updated

You can delete a test variation only if the campaign is “Not Started” state. But, you cannot delete variations from a running or paused test. Deleting variations from a running campaign will affect the statistical integrity of your website data because running tests would have started collecting data and removing a variation may corrupt your test reports or mislead your decision -making process.

As a best practice, we recommend that you first clone the test, delete the variation from the cloned test, and then start the campaign. To learn how to clone a test, click here.

To delete variations if the test is in the not started mode:

  1. Open the test you want to edit.
  2. Click the three vertical dots next to Start.
  3. To open the page in the VWO editor, select Modify in Editor.
  4. In the editor, go to the Variations section, and then click the Settings gear icon.
  5. In Variation 1 options, click Remove to delete the variation.

You can also disable a variation if you no longer need it for the test. Click here to learn how to disable a variation.
