Why oh why are you turning off the YouTube trends dashboard :-(
Thanks for using the Trends Map and Trends Dashboard! Unfortunately, in the coming days we'll be turning off these tools, but you can always find the latest trending videos at youtube.com/trending.

The replacement one isn't as usefull..

+Michael Walker Yeah, that was really helpful. It will be sorely missed!
But now there's the YouTube Ads Leaderboard ( http://goo.gl/HVRt39 )and the Consumer Barometer ( https://goo.gl/OQjsbb ) which you can use to create more indepth insights! You should check it out.

General Questions  - 
 
How do I manually set the enhanced e-commerce tracking steps in GTM.
Say for instance I am hitting the cart page that shows the baskets items and there is no data layer being set, and I merely at this stage want to set this :

Checkout Step - Enhanced E-Commerce (cos): 1
Product Action - Enhanced E-Commerce (pa): checkout_option

How do I go about setting this in GTM as I looked and couldn't see a place to set this in the tag area?

Once the user then proceeds to checkout I will then set the products and values into the data layer via a custom JS macro. Any pointers on setting the macro up correctly greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Mike

Hi +Michael Walker​,

The following link should help:

https://developers.google.com/tag-manager/enhanced-ecommerce#macro

Alternatively you could write a custom HTML tag to complete a dataLayer.push with the required information. If you do this I would include a bespoke event key:value pair in the push to enable you to ensure tags are only fired after the enhanced ecommerce data has been set. Even when using the custom JS variable method you should ensure that all the data is defined and available to the variable/tag before it is called so make sure you double check timing factors.

Regards,

Jeff

GA doesnt give me the site that I need to link to. So in my Search Console I have the web property verified (via DNS) and its listed all fine there. But when I go to link it via GA the property isn't listed for me to select only lists others. Is there anyway to see if the property is linked to another GA account via the console - that's the only thing I can think that's happened?
