Saving as a draft
When you save a Web Personalization experience as a draft, you can preview the experience without exposing it to your site visitors.
A campaign has draft status only if it does not have any active experiences. In other words, if your campaign has one experience that is saved as a draft and one that is active, the campaign’s status is active.
To activate an experience that is currently saved as a draft, edit the experience and change the status to Active in the Status tab.
Publishing a campaign is a process with several stages to complete before it's visible to all of your site visitors. The icons next to each campaign indicate its status.
- Preparing: A validation and preparation stage for up to 90 seconds, during which the campaign is not yet viewable.
- Publishing: The campaign is viewable for you and other logged in users, but not to site visitors. This stage usually takes 2-10 minutes.
- Fully Published: When the campaign is fully published and available to all of your visitors, the icons are removed.
Note: If you are using your own [custom] CDN, the time it takes to publish is defined in your CDN configuration.
