Decibel Insight


Decibel has a very simple one-click Optimizely integration that will be able to identify pages with Optimizely variations and then pull these into the app.

Enabling the Optimizely Integration

To enable this option, simply navigate to Settings > Integrations > Split Testing > Optimizely and tick the Optimizely Enabled checkbox, before clicking Save. Decibel will now begin to collect Optimizely variations on pages where both Optimizely and Decibel are present.

Please note: The Optimizely integration does not work retroactively as it requires us to collect and aggregate the variations each time the script is fired.

Using Optimizely Variations

Upon collecting Optimizely variations, you can begin to use these by creating Segments based on them.

When creating a segment, in Segment Filters, click on the Integrations tab and navigate to Optimizely Variation and use the text box to search for a variation, such as in the image below.

Upon creating the segment, you can begin to filter Sessions, Heatmaps, Forms and other features in Decibel based on those users who have viewed that particular variation.

Using Optimizely Variations in Heatmaps

When using Heatmaps, you can very easily segment by a variation to see how it was performing. Simply create a segment that contains an Optimizely variation and then browse to the page that contains that variation in Heatmaps. Simply click the Segment dropdown and select the Segment that contains the variation before clicking Apply changes and you will see the page change to the layout of the variation, while also filtering by users who saw this variation.
