Using a lookup table to render the correct Google Analytics property based on the environment or hostname was one of the great tips I picked up from the Google Tag Manager training at Brighton SEO. It is pretty simple to set up, and once you have done it you'll never look back!
If you've followed our other posts about setting up Google Tag Manager for different development environments and how to implement GTM container code within Joomla templates, you'll probably next be asking how to set up Google Analytics so that you can separate out your development, demo and production sites. Let's take a dive into the easiest way to do this with Google Analytics properties.
I often have moments in the office where I am so excited by a new feature that I start clapping excitedly and pointing at the screen - this was definitely one of them! For some time we had been trying to figure out how to reliably test our marketing tags between different environments - development, demo and production - without accidentally putting tags in the wrong place or leaving debug mode enabled.
We used to achieve this with different containers in Google Tag Manager for each environment or using the 'preview' mode, which was very cumbersome - so the day back in November 2015 when Google launched its 'environments' feature in Google Tag Manager was most definitely a happy clappy day!
Segments in Mautic are a way of grouping your leads so that you can take action - for example kick off a campaign - based on their behaviour. Sometimes you may need to manually remove a contact from a segment and there is a simple way to do this.
