Hi,

Apart from regular settings in Google Analytics for https. Is there anything else I have to do?

 

Thanks

Set the "Always Use SSL info" when you create your GA tag under Advanced. The only other setting that trips people up is for subdomain tracking - if you are tracking across subdomains, unlike embedding GA directly, when you implement GA via GTM you need to add:

More Settings > Field to Set > Field Name: cookieDomain Value: Auto

I just add this no matter what so that the GTM behavior matches the embedded GA behavior by default and I don't get tripped up months later.
