We're setting up our tag category groupings for GDPR using the consent preferences dialog. There doesn't appear to be a way to create any additional groupings; is this correct? Will that be a future feature?

Also, there doesn't seem to be a way to remove a grouping from displaying even if it's toggled Off with no tags in it other than deleting it from the HTML. Just checking that this is the best method of deleting a grouping our company doesn't use.

Thanks

At this time, @sberman, we only have the 15 available categories with no plans for adding more. You can rename them if you need to repurpose a group.

Additionally, the categories are static and match to what's in the Tag Marketplace for easier grouping of tags to category.

The On/Off table in the configurator will soon be removed. If you don't want the category to show in the preferences dialog then you'll need to go into the HTML and comment out that category. For example, our demo site doesn't use Affiliate vendors so I commented out as such:

 <!--tr>
<td>{{category_affiliates_title}}</td>
<td>{{category_affiliates_description}}</td>
<td>
<input type="checkbox" class="toggle" id="toggle_cat2"/>
<label for="toggle_cat2"> <span class="on">{{yes}}</span> <span class="off">{{no}}</span></label>
</td>
</tr-->   

 

May I ask what Category you want to add? Just to share with Engineering?

Thanks!

We wanted to add some custom categories like Chat or Live Reviews. Our site has Chat using Zopim through Tealium. We didn't want to group it with anything else because we'd like users to have the option to opt into only Chat. We use Trustpilot where users can leave reviews and those live reviews display on our site.

I take it that you're assigning those tags to a Category that isn't used and renaming the Category in the HTML configuration? Meaning basically it's a placeholder/overwrite?

If so, you may want to update utag.gdpr.preferences_prompt.categories to update the name of the Category. You should be able to use a JS extension scoped to DOM Ready to do so. This will help the downstream GDPR library to reference the correct Category name.

Cheers,

Thanks @dan_george.

We didn't change the html category names just the text we input in the content box. E.g., {{category_misc_title}} remains the same, we just filled in "Chat Help" in the content box. 

However, we can still update utag.gdpr.preferences_prompt.categories if needed.
