GTM: Keyboard Shortcut for "Save"

Julius Fedorovicius 2 years ago updated 1 year ago 4

It would save some time if I could just click CTLR + S (or CMD + S) and Tag's/Trigger's/Variable's settings would be saved. Now, I have to move my mouse every time to the top right corner of the window.

I haven't implemented the cascading Save yet, but if you press ctrl+shift+1st letter of button you now have shortcuts for every active button.

Update code beautification to resolve issue with GTM's new variable dropdown

Add checkboxes for QA in GTM to show that you have checked a tag, trigger or variable before publishing.

Just when reviewing changes that someone else has made or when reviewing your own changes, it's difficult to keep track of what you've checked and what you haven't.  This would help with the QA process.

I will gradually continue to improve the rich annotation feature so it will be possible to add a "status" annotation with a flag (icon/color) about anywhere you want.


Conditional style formatting in datastudio

Alrik Burger 11 months ago updated 11 months ago 5

To me datastudio is currently lacking proper conditional formating of metrics.

Is it possible to fix this with da vinci tools. It would be great for some metrcis to have the basic possibility to maken the color of numbers red for negatives and green for positives for example.

Whenever a string of the format ${font-awesome icon} is found in a dimension, it will be replaced with its corresponding icon. It's not quite conditional formatting, but with calculated fields, you can use icons in a similar way.

So something like ${far fa-grin-tongue-wink fa-2x} will be replaced by the grin-tongue-wink smiley.

Cool isn't it! :)


Real time in Data Studio

Any chance something can be added besides the refresh button in order to have availability to see real time reporting in GDS?

BTW: Thanks this tool is very helpful!

Thanks for reaching out!

Besides the auto-refresh I have implemented, I guess there's little else that can be done. The real-time API is simply not available as a data source. In order to do something like this, someone would have to 1) develop a community connector for the real-time API and b) find a way to refresh the dashboard in real-time. This is simply not possible at this time.

The next best alternative is to use the Da Vinci feature to auto-refresh every 5 minutes.

UPDATE 2020-01-23: Everything is back in place and a new release will be published within a couple of weeks, while I'm discussing with interested parties to take over.

Please note Da Vinci Tools will no longer be supported and no further updates will be published.

If you were a subscriber, you subscription will remain valid until the expiry date but won't be renewed.

Sorry about the inconvenience - this decision had to be made given the lack of growth and the low volume of subscribers. It just didn't make sense to continue to invest so much energy into it.

Let me know which feature you liked the most and I might find some time to create some standalone extensions and make them open source.
