Why is testing and debugging critical for tag management?

Miss-fired or buggy tags can wreck havoc with your website and with your ability to get accurate insights from your data. Broken tags slow down page load times, prevent elements from loading properly and in general cause a lot of headache. In addition, fixing them once they are live can waste valuable time and sometimes involve costly IT support.

Preview Mode

Preview Mode

Preview mode creates a safe testing environment (both in desktop and mobile versions) that allows you see how your tags would operate once deployed. Use the debugger window in the sidebar to determine whether your tags were fired correctly and if your deployment could cause any problems.

Debugger Window

Debugger Window

Use the debug window to find out if tags and triggers are firing and what data they are passing to their respective services. The debug console will dynamically update tag firing information so you can see if a tag fired or not, as well as what triggered (or did not trigger) it.

Event Logs

Event Logs

Test and debug mode includes an event log for each tag where you can track what is happening on your page. This helps give a clear view of when your tags are being fired and gives you valuable information to help you optimize your tags’ firing rules.

Breakpoints

Breakpoints

To facilitate and improve the process of debugging your tags, Piwik PRO Tag Manager provides breakpoints for your tags. WIth breakpoints enabled all actions causing page reloads will be disabled. You can use it, for example, if you want to check which tags were fired during a form submission.

A full-featured tag management system

Instead of having to put up with long delays and rely on IT support, deploy exactly the tags you need, when you need them all by yourself and get the insights you require to make data-driven decisions.
