When you click "Preview", Naytev automatically generates post variations with creatives you provided in the Test Editor. We provide a preview of what the posts will look like on each social network.

You can treat this screen as a final "check" to make sure that the combinations make sense and are typo free. 

If you see a message variation that you'd like to change, click the "Edit" link at the top of the page. You'll be taken back to the Editor Page where you can click on the pencil icon to edit text and photos. If you'd like to remove any message or thumbnail photo click the red "X" icon to completely remove photos and titles you don't like. 

You can also completely remove a post variation from the "Preview Page" if you click the red 'X' icon shown on the specific post. 

Review Your Settings

To the left of the post previews, you can review and modify test settings. Naytev will use the default budget, target audience, and optimization goal your team defined during account setup. Create different profiles for different situations, teams, and types of content. 

Save Your Test As A Draft

If you're not ready to run your test or need additional approval before submitting the ads to Facebook, Naytev autosaves your tests after you add in your creative variables. You can always access your draft tests by going to the Test Page and using the draft test filters. 

Submit Your Test

When you've reviewed everything, click "Run Test" button on the Preview Page. Your test will be submitted to Facebook for review. Facebook will ensure all test messages meet their policy requirements (e.g. no nudity, marketing alcohol to minors, etc.) before publishing them within the ads system. 

Once you submit your test, you can access it from your Content Homepage by filtering for Tested Content or Directly from your Test Page. 

After you submit your test to Facebook, you have the option to "Pause" your test. Pausing your test, by using the button in the upper right hand corner, will block any budget from being spent. 

TIP: It's a testing best practice to make sure that your test spends the full allocated budget to ensure clear results.  

IMPORTANT: Be sure that your team never modifies your test or the campaign containing it in Facebook Power Editor or Ads Manager. All changes can be made within Naytev. External changes may result in test failure.

If you pause your test and you have your posting option set up, a pop up window will appear asking you to confirm whether you want the associated post to go out or to cancel all posts coming from your test. 

Review Your Test Results

After Facebook approves your test messages, your test will start automatically, and Naytev will notify you via email when your test reaches confident results. Be sure to confirm your work email address under Account > Preferences so you receive a notification when confident results are reached.
