This method must not be used to redact sensitive data and you should only share your report link if you'd be comfortable with the hidden block's reportable data being accessible.
Sometimes you may realize that a particular block from your maze doesn't really tell a particularly compelling story. You might not have gotten any actionable insights from the responses, or the responses may be misleading because of an issue that arose unrelated to the design elements being tested. Whatever the cause, you may sometimes wish to hide the block from your report so that you don't confuse or distract from more relevant or impactful results.
Doing so is easy and will hide the block from the report when viewed by project viewers or external stakeholders viewing the report anonymously.
Hiding a block from your report
Hiding a block is simple. You simply hover over the block in the block list in your report, and then click the eye icon to hide the block from the report:
Restoring a hidden block from your report
Showing a hidden block is equally simple. Just hover over the hidden block and click the eye icon once more to reveal it again:
Frequently Asked Questions
Who can see hidden blocks?
All members of the team which owns the project will be able to see the hidden blocks if logged into Maze. Otherwise, all unauthenticated/anonymous users and all project viewers will not see the hidden block. However, the data that would normally still be displayed can still technically be accessed by savvy users who are familiar with how web applications work. For this reason, it's important that you not use this mechanism to redact any data that's too sensitive to share.
How can I hide specific test sessions from the report?
For Open Question blocks, you can hide specific responses by unstarring the response from within that block in your maze's results. For other blocks, you can only hide entire blocks at this time. You cannot hide individual test sessions from the report except by deleting them fully. If this is functionality you need, please let us know.
