Tracking Code Issue

We provide website development through the CMS DNN, which allows you to insert the tracking code directly through the DNN interface. However, I noticed that when I look at the tracking code inside of Analytics, it shows an outdated version of the code, compared to the code provided in GA. 


I'm wondering what the implications are for using the outdated code or is outdated even the right word to use? 


Also, what are the benefits of using the newer code? I remember hearing about a code update a while back, but I couldn't imagine it being required. 


If I need to manually put in the updated code on all of our client's sites, that's going to take a very long time, and I need to know it's worth it.


Thanks in advance!

Assuming you mean the Google Analytics code currently running isn't Universal Analytics?


Lots of benefits that you can see here - https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2790010?hl=en&ref_topic=6010376


If there is no module for Universal Analytics in DNN, you might try implementing it via Google Tag Manager. Found you a resource here - https://blog.bayareasearchengineacademy.org/web-analytics/how-to-install-and-configure-google-tag-ma...
