Google Tag Manager
Google Tag Manager is a tag management system (TMS) that allows you to quickly and easily update measurement codes and related code fragments collectively known as tags on your website or mobile app.
When Tag Manager is installed, your website or app will be able to communicate with the Tag Manager servers. You can then use Tag Manager's web-based user interface to set up tags, establish triggers that cause your tag to fire when certain events occur, and create variables that can be used to simplify and automate your tag configurations.
A collection of tags, triggers, variables, and related configurations installed on a given website or mobile app is called a container.
Using this integration requires an account in Google Tag Manager.
Go to GTM and create a new account.
Copy the GTM container ID (in the format GTM-XXXXXX).
Paste the container ID in the integration settings here in Vev.
