Ever since GTM introduced the [Submit] button, I've been having issues when saving changes - I've copied and saved an existing tag only for it to completely disappear, and so on. Anyone else experiencing this?

I also occasionally find that when I use a variable to set an Event Category, Action or Label in a UA event tracking tag, the value of that variable doesn't seem to be used and is returned empty, even when I know it isn't empty.

When going through the checkout process and using Enhanced Ecommerce - can you send events to GA for each of the checkout steps without setting the 'products' part of the data layer (i.e. leave it out completely), e.g.

dataLayer.push({
'event': 'checkout',
'ecommerce': {
'checkout': {
'actionField': {'step': 1}
}
})

Wanting to know the best way to record discounts via GTM and Enhance Ecommerce.

In my case, if user purchases tickets x days prior to event, they get a 10% discount. If I enter a coupon code in the purchase AND the transaction total is less than the sum of the products (+tax) will it be assumed the underage is the discount? If so, can you then report in GA on the total value of discounts resulting from early purchases?

Also, given the 10% is only applied to the cost of the tickets and NOT the cost of the optional transportation costs too, do I need to discount the price so, if qty=2 and price=$100 and discount=10%, would I have qty=2 and price=$90?

Never been quite sure how GA handles all of these monetary values when a purchase includes discounts!

Is it possible to check, within GTM, whether or not the user browsing a web site is doing so in GTM's preview mode? If so, what's the best way to do so?
