Google Tag Manager Service Connector

Version 3

 

Google Tag Manager is a tag management system that allows you to easily track tags and related code fragments on your website or mobile app. Google Tag Manager delivers simple, reliable, easily integrated tag management solutions, and manages all your website tags without editing code. Use Domo's Google Tag Manager Service connector to view your tag related data in Domo. To learn more about the Google Tag Manager API, visit their page (https://developers.google.com/tag-manager/api/v2).

You connect to your Google account in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Google Tag Manager connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.
