Select the type of event you want to track - “some pages” and “click” are simple and the most useful.
Now you will set up the trigger - or what event(s) will make your tracking code fire.
To track page view conversions select “all pages”
Analytics will show you all page views & you can create goals that will count specific page views as conversions
To track button clicks select “click”
The “create trigger” box pops up
Click “untitled trigger” to name you trigger. Example:
Call Button Click
Select “just links” from the dropdown under Configure Trigger
Uncheck the boxes & click continue
You probably want to track specific clicks, so choose “some clicks”
You can now specify the conditions when your tag will fire. Using click text (the text in your link/button), click url (the button link), or page url in combination will help you specify the button & page that will fire your tag.
Now you have your Tag & Trigger set up
Click “Publish” in the top right to push your changes live.
If you ever need the GTM code again, click on the blue link in the top left (below the Tag Manager logo). It will bring up a box with the tracking code for the container you are currently viewing (your current container name displays to the left of the blue link you just clicked).
To edit triggers afterwards, click triggers in the left sidebar and click the trigger you want to edit. This will bring up the configure box you used before while creating the tag & trigger.
