Tag manager not connecting to GA, events not tracked

Dear Community,

 

I've been facing several issues connecting Tag Manager to the events and then to goals.

 

Firstly, when Tag Manager is enabled to show whether it's actually working on the page, it shows the errors of:

 

Invalid or missing account ID
Code found outside of <body> tag
 
The first one can be explained (according to the info provided) with: "NOTE: If your container ID (i.e. what’s referenced here as ‘account ID’) is of format GTM-XXXXXXX, where the portion after ‘GTM-’ is longer than 6 characters, you may see this error unnecessarily. This false error will be resolved in a future update. In the meantime, as long as your container ID follows the correct format as described below, you may ignore this error." Which is the case, because there are 7 characters after GTM- .
As for the 2nd error, the piece of code is actually in the <body>, so no idea what's wrong.
 
Secondly, the events are not tracked in Analytics and if the TM actually works, I'm not sure why it happens. Shouldn't it be automatic once TM is firing?
 
Thirdly, once these issues are solved, how do I connect events to the goals foron Form submit tracking? Will it give basic tracking of the acquisition of the ones who submitted the form?
 
Thank you very much for your time,
 
Anastasia.

Your tracking code is fine.

Your GA pageview tag is firing.

Can you see the event in your events reports in Behavior > Events?

Dear Julien, 

 

Thanks for the reply!

 

I do not see any events registered, all on zero.
