Filtering of Projects and Experiments
The first feature ‘Filtering of projects and experiments’ has been provided to organize the way that projects and experiments are displayed on the view panel. On the right hand side of the project panel you will find a drop down box with the name ‘ACTIVE, OWN PROJECTS AND ACTIVE, SHARE PROJECTS’. This is how it looks:
This drop down box provides you with five options. You can select one or more options and accordingly your projects and experiments will be displayed. These five options are:
- All the Projects
- Active, Own Projects
- Active, Shared Projects
- Inactive, Own Projects
- Inactive , Shared Projects
The benefit of this feature is that it allows you to save a lot of time and effort when you are working on multiple projects. You don’t have to manually search for each project. To filter the Active and Finished Experiments you can do the following:

New Feature to Improve the Load Time of a Website
While running a website it is important to keep a track of the loading time of its pages. Loading time of web pages get affected while reducing the size and amount of files that are being forwarded to the users. But that is not the case with Convert. Since Convert serves its code from blazing fast CDN, you will notice that Convert experiments do not drop the speed for more than 1%. However, as a user, you may want to ensure that the speed of your website as good as possible.
Convert serves its code from blazing fast CDN, you will notice that Convert experiments do not drop the speed for more than 1%
What we recommend is that you avoid sending JQuery code library twice. In order to implement all the experiments that you use on your website, Convert makes use of JQuery Code Library so you must then avoid including JQuery files in the libraries that you forward to your users, or configure Convert to stop including the JQuery library. This will help you improve the loading time for your website.
Keep in mind that if the JQuery libraries are not included in your website files and you also configure Convert to not include the JQuery files, then your experiment will not work. You must have at least one on your project. Here are the steps that you need to follow:
1. Go to My Projects and click on the icon pointed by the red arrow:
2. You will be presented a form to edit project settings. Click on ‘DO NOT INCLUDE JQUERY’. That’s it you have successfully configured Convert to not include JQuery files.
