How to use the upload variables feature (import from file)?
SplitSignal’s Upload Variables feature expands the testing options in the tool greatly and allows for more customization when creating test rules.
Now, a user is able to customise the text of the meta, for example, of every url in the test. Or create their own variables without the variables having to exist on page.
Here are some example test types that use this capability:
Test type: Adding Text inside of <p> (paragraph)
