How to trigger exclusively one tag

Hi, there's a way to "execute" only one tag (in my case SiteCatalyst tag) with a utag.view? This is the case: we have a page that loads Doubleclick, GA and SiteCatalyst on page load. When user clicks on a button, we need to create a SiteCatalyst virtual pageview from Tealium. Unfortunately, doing utag.view() means that also Doubleclick and GA get another pageview in their respective systems, but we want to avoid that. Thanks, Alessandro

Hey Allessandro, In you utag.view you can do the following utag.view({variable_1:"variable1",variable_2 : "variable2"}, null, [7]); Where in this case [7] would equal the tag ID for SiteCat. You can do this either hardcoding the utag.view call to your onclick or through a jQuery extension in TIQ with a tracking event of custom. Hope this helps.

Hi James, it's clear, where can i find the documentation regarding utag.view? Is the third parameter an array?And the second one what stands for? Thanks

{variable_1:"variable1",variable_2 : "variable2"}, ( is the JSON formatted data being sent) null, ( is for future additional functionality, I believe for callback functions, but not used currently) [7] is the UID number of the tag in your Tealium IQ console you want to fire.

Yes, you can fire more than one tag by delimiting with a comma just like you have it.

One other behavior is that is will bypass load rules and fire the tag(s) listed.

Hi Alessandro, you would also need to be on utag.js 4.26 or newer in order to take advantage of this.
