It is possible to separate real study and test environment by creating a duplicate of a study. You can do that by following these steps:
2. Once the testing is done, export the structure from the test study and import it into the real study. Keep in mind that it is not possible to import users, settings and automation engine settings into the real study. We recommend to set this up directly in the production environment.
3. Once the real study goes live, you can use the test study to test any potential changes to the study.
4. After these changes are tested in a test study, set the real study to 'not live' and make the relevant changes. Set the study back to 'live' once the changes are completed. Keep in mind that changing the study forms can have impact on the data which are described in the article: Can I still change the forms when my study is live?
