Better QA With Google Tag Manager Environments
GTM published a huge update just today. Environments lets you create a setup in Google Tag Manager, to which you can publish container versions. You can share the preview link for this setup, or authenticate this setup with a special container snippet you add to the site template. If someone is authenticated against an environment, they can access any versions that are published there.
In other words, this is a huge boost to container workflow, as you can pass a version through various environments (dev, QA, staging) before pushing it live.
The major difference to the old "Share Preview" link is that the preview sharing shared container versions
, so if you created a new version you had to distribute a new link. Now you share environments, and you only need to distribute the authentication token once (unless access is revoked).
