Different results of quantity of sessions and events between GA code and GTM code with implemented GA code. With using GTM collects less data. I need some algorithm to define and resolve differences.

Hi,

Is the implementation the same in concept?
Do the Analytics properties share the same settings - views are the same - filters, settings, referral exclusion?
All the pages tagged with both GA and GTM?

Kind regards,

Hi,
It`s a theoretical task,that`s why I can`t answer your questions.

Hi,Zorin
I didn`t understand were your questions the answer or you asked them for better understanding of the problem.

Hi,

those were additional questions to better understand the issue. As I understand you need some reasons why a difference in sessions may occur if you hard code analytics and do it via GTM?

By default there should be no difference. That is if you 'clone' the implementation both in terms of code and GA admin. There can be some site specific issues which break the script not allowing both GA and GTM to execute but this needs to be determined on a per case basis.
