has anyone found a clever way to document the data layer on different pages/event? Some sort of document or file that can be maintained by the business owner but then read and used directly from the devs, so it has to have a very standardised format.

The main point for me would to be able to add clearly:

  • where/when to populate the data layer (either page load url or specifc event)
  • format/type of the variables
  • possible values for each variable (or logic to use to populate it)

My aim would then to be able to use the same document for testing as well
