Can't Setup Event Tracking for form submit. Nothing Fires

Hey guys,

 

I'm having some difficulty tracking a form submission with tag manager.

 

So this is how I had it setup.

 

I had the tag manager code inputted into my header firstly.

 

Then I created a trigger:

 

Form submission

Checks validation

Enabled when page url ends with /contact/

Fires on "some forms" when page url ends with /contact

 

Then I created a tag:

 

Google analytics

Universal analytics

Input my tracking ID

Selected event

Category: Form

Action: Submit

Label: Contact-Page

Fire on Form and selected the form trigger I just created

 

Then I created my goal in analytics to mimic the above and it doesn't seem to be working?

 

When I preview the contact page, it says no tags fire on the page. If I could get any help or advice, that would be perfect.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi James :-)
For help with Tag Manager, you may want to ask on the GTM Help Forum

Hey there, thanks for the response. I wasn't sure if it would be placed here due to it not tracking in analytics. I'll try Tag Manager to see what people can come up with.

Hi to start GTM code does not go into header it goes after opening body tag
Likely more help in the GTM forum as Bronwyn said - (not sure why it is split from this community seems logical to be together)
