Tag Manager Features

All Google Tag Manager features can be individually turned on/off in the Options dialog of the extension.

Complete of Google Tag Manager features:

  • Rich Annotations
  • AllBuiltin: Easily turn built-in variables on/off.
  • Beautify: Enable code beautification for Custom HTML Tags and Custom JavaScript variables.
  • CodeBlock: Automatically add a code block when creating a new Custom HTML Tag or Custom JavaScript variable.
  • DarkTheme: Toggle the editor from regular to dark mode.
  • HideMe: Easily turn off the specified containers (for you only). This will prevent the GTM container from loading on the page.
  • Inject ($): Inject your own GTM container on any page you want. This will also prevent existing GTM from loading on those pages. The RegEx should be a valid URL pattern match, for example:
  • Lookup: Copy/Paste from/to RegEx & Table Lookup Table. Quick demo video.
  • New:  Create new Tag/Trigger/Variable directly from the Overview pane.
  • NameInTitle: Show container name in tab title - handy if you have multiple GTM tabs open in your browser.
