Enabling Experiments

This article describes how to enable experiments for both client-side and server-side products. Experiments are beta features that can be enabled for your account.

The Early Access program will continue to work for the features it has been enabled for.

How It Works

With experiments you can take your account to the next level by accessing cutting edge experimental and pre-release features that are still in the beta stage.

To enable an experiment, log in to your account, open the Experiments dialog, and select the features to enable.

Once enabled, the new feature is immediately available in your session. To make the experiment available for all other users of your account, save your account. If you log out without saving, the experiment does not persist for future sessions.

Experiment Stages

New features are promoted through stages and go to General Availability (GA) based on usage, hours, and enablement.

  • Alpha
    Experiments in the Alpha stage are typically items an initial release of a large feature in order to gather customer feedback and apply enhancements prior to release.
  • Beta
    Experiments in the Beta stage include features that will soon be available for GA, with minor fixes and enhancements.

Enabling an Experimental Feature

Use the following steps to enable an experimental feature in iQ Tag Management or Customer Data Hub:

  1. Log into iQ Tag Management.
  2. In the left side bar, click Client-Side Experiments or Server-Side Experiment, which resembles a laboratory beaker.

    The Experiments dialog displays.
  3. Use the toggle to turn a selected feature On or Off.
  4. Click Apply.
    If you select On, the experiments is immediately applied to your current session. The next time you save or publish, the experiment is activated for all users of your profile.

How do I provide feedback?
