Legacy Litmus Retirement: FAQs
Why are you retiring the legacy platform?
Back in October 2019, we launched the new, redesigned Litmus, providing your team with one seamless view to build, test, review, and analyze emails with helpful organization tools and improved visibility. As we continue to innovate in the new Litmus, we will be retiring our legacy platform later this year.
When will the legacy platform be retired?
The legacy platform will be retired for all accounts on October 1, 2020. The switch will happen automatically—there is nothing you need to do on your end.
How do I tell if I’m in the new Litmus?
To tell what version of Litmus you’re in, take a look at the sidebar. If you see any of the following, that means you’re in the new Litmus:
- Design Library
- Legacy Emails (only applicable if you have access to new and Litmus)
- (?) New Litmus Platform button
Here’s what that looks like:
How do I opt in to new Litmus?
Within the legacy platform, there is a banner that has a CTA to “Try new Litmus.”
If you’ve already clicked on that banner—or dismissed it—you can opt in again by clicking on the “Try new Litmus” button in the sidebar, or on the dashboard.

What do I have to do prior to retirement?
We recommend that your team makes the transition prior to retirement so that you’re able to take full advantage of all of the additional value in the new Litmus immediately. And so you’re comfortable with it by the time the legacy platform is retired.
However, there’s nothing you have to do prior to retirement. We’ll make the switch automatically for you. All of your legacy projects will still be accessible in the “Legacy Emails” folder. You can move them into the new Litmus whenever you’d like to access them.
Do I have to transfer all of my projects into new Litmus prior to retirement?
No! For starters, all of your legacy Email Analytics and Spam Tests are automatically available in new Litmus by default.
You’ll have to transfer your legacy Builder, Checklist, and Proof projects into new Litmus to access them there, but you don’t need to do that prior to retirement. They’ll be accessible in the “Legacy Emails” folder to transfer whenever you’re ready (note that our retention policy for legacy tests has remained the same).
