Opt-in migration now available
The opt-in migration tool, called Migration assistant
is now available in the UI.
1) Navigate to tagmanager.google.com
. The Migration assistant should pop-up instantly
2) If you choose to close the assistant, you can find it next to the Legacy Accounts header in the Accounts screen
3) Once you click Launch Assistant
, a new screen is shown, where you can select the accounts you want to migrate
4) After selecting accounts and clicking Migrate, you will have submitted the accounts for migration, and the process will begin
It takes some hours to complete, so don't expect immediate results.
The migration preserves your container ID, so no changes to the container snippet need to be made.
Also, legacy V1 features like Tag-based auto-event tracking is preserved in V2, so everything should work as before. You might still want to get started on activating V2-specific features (such as Trigger-based auto-event tracking), so that you can leverage all the cool new stuff that's coming in as quick as possible.
