What GTM trigger for a thank you page ?

Hi all,

 

I would like to track my conversions on my Thank you page but I don't know what trigger I should use.

I saw different types of triggers (page view trigger, event trigger, DOM trigger) and I don't know which one I should use. 

Please take a look at the different screenshots

 

 

1/ Trigger based on a page view (thank you page)

2/ Trigger based on an event

3/ Trigger based on DOM

All those triggers are working well but which one should I use for my thank you page?

 

Thanks

Hi Thomas - I would suggest using the first one - Choose Event > Page View, Trigger Type > Page View.

This trigger is practically the same as gtm.js event based trigger yet on the second one you would need to add a Page URL / Path condition in order to trigger only on the thank you page.

Hope it helps.

Kind regards,
