I'd like to setup base analytics and following the how to/demo however my screen shows a different setup, has the tag manager interface changed since this course rollout? Instead of prompting for the tracking ID it asks to select a settings variable? thanks

Hey, 

 

yes the settings variable is a pretty new feature. You can just check the box "Enable overriding settings variable" and you are basically back to the old interface. Also you could use the settings variable (it's pretty handy). It has the same features. But maybe just go with checking that box and once you get the hang of everything try using the variable. 

 

best regards
