Hello again @ani2012. I feel like I'm stalking you at this point. LOL I'm working on my GUA installation as well.  Here is a post I used for my events handling. Don't know if it will work for you as well. https://community.tealiumiq.com/t5/Developers/How-to-trigger-events-on-page-load-for-Google-universa...

 

Good luck.

As per my undersating below event (user load time) works diffrenctly. I am not sure how to map timingCategory etc with Tealium or should i send these value direcly with utag.link with java script extension. 

 

ga('send', 'timing', [timingCategory], [timingVar], [timingValue], [timingLabel], [fieldsObject]);

 

My objective is to create Google Universal Analytics - "User Timiings" Report

Hi, 

 

As long as you are using the latest version of the GUA template, you just need to map the timing variables in and the template will handle them. 

The values that you will need to map to are timingCatagory, timingVar and timingValue. timingLabel is optional.  

 

The only complication is that they are not in the mapping toolbox, but if you choose the datasource that you want to map, then when the mapping toolbox comes up, press Esc or press the cancel button, then you can type into the "destination" box.

Once you have those mapped, the data will be sent through.   You do need to make sure that you have the most recent version of the GUA template, however. 

 

Thanks
