GTM User ID

Hi All!

So I am the non-developer working with our team on GTM... having trouble understanding data layer ins and outs enough to make sure i get the team the right info.

We've got the below pushing through - and i see it in the preview mode successfully... but I don't see anything in Analytics yet. First off, can anyone quickly help me if the snippet is wrong? Secondly, I set up the variable in GTM with user_id as it saw it there - sound right?

<script type="text/javascript">
// Here's where you define the data layer
dataLayer = [{
"user": {
"user_id": "58476"
},
"page": {
"type": "home"
}
}];
</script>

Thanks in advance! x

Hi,

The snippet should be
&lt;script type="text/javascript">
// Here's where you define the data layer
window.dataLayer=window.dataLayer||[];
dataLayer.push({
"user_id": "58476",
"page_type": "home"
});
&lt;/script&gt;

There the variables in GTM that would be created are like these
For user_id

For page_type
