Tag Bundling Feature Request

Hi Tealium, Currently the tag bunling option bundles tags that load on all pages with utag.js. While this eliminates some http requests that occur after DOM Ready, it does increase the size of the utag.js file which is loaded before DOM Ready. It therefore negatively impacts performance on the first page where utag.js isn't cashed yet. What I'd rather see is that tags are bundled based on the load rules applied. Say you have 5 tags with a load rule "order confirmation page", these tags could be bundled into one utag.n.js file. Eliminating 4 http requests. Kind regards, Koen.

Hi Koen, As you know, currently, that isn't how load rules work so there's no easy way of doing that right now, however I will pass your question on to engineering. Many thanks Steve Lake

Hi Koen, one workaround you can do for this: "While this eliminates some http requests that occur after DOM Ready, it does increase the size of the utag.js file which is loaded before DOM Ready." is to wrap your utag.js in code that waits for DOM ready before downloading utag.js. "Say you have 5 tags with a load rule "order confirmation page", these tags could be bundled into one utag.n.js file. Eliminating 4 http requests." This is an interesting idea. We're already looking into different ways to give more flexibility for bundling and caching, and we'll add this idea to that discussion.
