Google Tag Assistant is an extension that lets you make changes to your tags and instantly verify that they are firing as intended. You can do so from your Google Tag Manager dashboard, but please make sure you have submitted and published a container in advance.

  1. To ensure that everything has been set up properly, you can click on Preview on the top right of the window to launch the debug mode.

2. This will launch the Google Tag Assistant window. Enter the URL of your flow, e.g.<your-flow-id>. Then, click Start to preview the container.

3. A new window will appear with the URL that you have pasted. If everything has been set up properly, you will see a notification located at the bottom right corner of the window stating Debugger connected.

Doesn’t work? Check out the Google Tag Manager Troubleshooting section for some tips.

4. Click through the flow like you would normally do. You can close the window at any moment or finish the flow. Once you are done, switch back to the Tag Assistant window.

‌5. You will be presented with a summary of all the tags, triggers, and variables that happened when you clicked through your flow.

‌6. On the left-hand side of the window, you can also see the specific actions that happened when you click through a flow. For every action, you can then see the specific tags, variables, data layer, and errors fired by navigating through the tabs.#

7. This indicates that everything has been set up correctly. If a corresponding Google Analytics was set up to the same flow, the presented tags will also appear in your Google Analytics dashboard.
