When installing universal analytics via GTM, what type of page view should we use for the trigger?

 

i.e. the trigger is 'All Pages' but should these be page view, DOM ready or window loaded?

Hi George,

All pages is fired at gtm.js which is the first thing that happens - so unless you need to wait for other data to be available - this is what you should use for your pageview trigger. DOM ready (gtm.dom) is next, then window loaded (gtm.load).

Best,
