Statsig FAQs

Does calling `checkGate` after `checkGateWithExposureLoggingDisabled` log the exposure correctly?

When using checkGateWithExposureLoggingDisabled at launch, it will not log an exposure event. This is particularly useful when you don't want to log exposures for users who may not reach the feature you're testing.

Later, when the user reaches the feature, calling checkGate will indeed log an exposure event. This is because checkGate by default logs an exposure event when it is called. Therefore, you do not need to call manuallyLogGateExposure in this case.

However, it's important to be aware that manually logging exposures can lead to an imbalance in exposure events if not done correctly. For example, only triggering exposures for users in the Test group of an experiment could imbalance the experiment.

Both checkGate and checkGateWithExposureLoggingDisabled will return the same result for a given user & gate. The thing to watch out for is if there are any changes between checkGateWithExposureLoggingDisabled and checkGate (e.g. gate is updated or user is updated).

At Notion, we're continuously learning what our users value and want every team to run experiments to learn more. It’s also critical to maintain speed as a habit. Statsig's experimentation platform enables both this speed and learning for us.

We evaluated Optimizely, LaunchDarkly, Split, and Eppo, but ultimately selected Statsig due to its comprehensive end-to-end integration. We wanted a complete solution rather than a partial one, including everything from the stats engine to data ingestion.
