  4. Sidebar: filters; views; secondary actions linked to the three-dot menu

Experiment information

Each experiment is represented by a card that indicates the main information.

Want to know more about an experiment? Mouse over the tooltip displayed to the right of the campaign name and you’ll have access to a plethora of detailed information without needing to open our editors or the results page.

Find an experiment

If you have created a large number of experiments, a search bar, a filtering tool and a sorting tool allow you to easily find a particular experiment.

With the right-hand panel on your dashboards, you can directly apply many filters. To sort the data displayed, just click on the column headers. Two very useful features for finding the campaign you’re looking for in no time at all.
