You should always test your campaigns before you publish them to ensure they display the way you intended. Evergage provides an easy way to safely test campaigns within your actual site. This article will show you how to enable the testing state for a campaign and explain the three ways you can view a campaign in testing mode.

Method 2: Visual Editor "TEST" mode
Confirm that you have installed the Evergage Chrome Visual Editor (VE) Extension by looking for the Evergage logo in your toolbar:
Open your site, then click the Visual Editor icon and slide the Visual Editor toggle to the right. The VE may prompt you to log in using your Evergage credentials. Once you login, select the correct dataset. Toggle the "TEST VIEW" slider from "OFF" to "ON", and all campaigns that are in the Testing state will be shown:
Method 3: Add a URL parameter
When you use this method, Evergage will apply all rules set for the campaign. For example, if you have page targeting rule set up, the campaign will show up only on that page. Or, if you have a location-based rule set for California, and you are not located in California when you test the campaign, you will not see it on your site.
Navigate to a page on your site that the campaign targets.
If your URL has parameters in it like this:
Add “&evergageTestMessages=true” (without the quotes) to the end of your URL like this:
If your URL looks more like this:
Add “?evergageTestMessages=true” (again, without the quotes) to the end of your URL like this:
With this parameter added to the end of the URL string, you can view how messages will appear to visitors on your site. You can make edits to your campaign, but after you save changes, you must refresh the page to see them.
