Preview a Site Using the Site Preview Tool

Use the Site Preview Tool to view the storefront as it appears for a certain date or time. You can choose to view the storefront as it appears for certain customer groups, or with certain source code. You can also preview an A/B test on a storefront by entering the A/B test and A/B test segment values.

  1. Select the site to view and click Toolkit.
    A new tab opens showing the storefront, with the Storefront Toolkit icons in the upper right corner.
  2. Click the Preview Settings Tool icon.
  3. (Optional) Enter a Date and Time.

    The Site Preview Tool uses the date and time format for the site locale according to the corresponding definition in regional settings. If multiple locales are allowed for a site, the tool uses the current locale.

    If you select a date in the past, the currrent content shows in the storefront. If the content asset was removed, no content is shows.

  4. (Optional) Enter a source code or customer group.

    You can't select Registered and Unregistered at the same time.

    If source codes or customer groups that you created within the last few minutes aren't available to select, you can try to refresh the page or reopen the Storefront Toolkit.

  5. To preview an A/B test:
    1. Select the A/B test.
    2. Select the A/B test segment.
    3. Enter a date that falls within the schedule of the A/B test. If you don't enter a date, the preview tool uses the test's effective date. If the test is inactive at the time you select, an error appears.

    If A/B tests or A/B test segments that you created within the last few minutes aren't available to select, you can try to refresh the page or reopen the Storefront Toolkit.

  6. Click Preview.
    The URL in the browser tab includes the date and time in the locale-specific format. For a source code or customer group preview, the storefront shows content slots, prices, and other data for the specified time. For an A/B test preview, the promotions, discounts, slots, and sorting rules related to the A/B test segment are enabled, regardless of the scheduled time of the A/B test.
