Re: Publishing cloned staging page resets historical data?
Thank you for the replies and sorry for the delayed response.
It does make sense to reset stats for the purpose of comparing how a new page layout/design gathers customer data compared to an old approach, however I'd like to suggest possibly offering this feature to allow the rollover of data by URL, not page ID. Perhaps, prompt the user to have to understand the option first with a description, and tick a checkbox "Yes, Rollover the data" etc.
As a designer recently brought in to overhaul a small business site, I had to explain to the staff that they'd be losing several years worth of historical data for the pages, though for now having it archived and accessible is great.
