Tagging cross-domain forms Google Analytics

Hello

 

We wanted to tracking cross domain, we have a website, the login form is in X.com domain and the next pages are in Y.com domain. The login form works with an input button that submits the form.

 

Is there any method to track cross domain like Google Tag Manager does?

 

Thanks in advance

Hi @adrian_browning

Thanks for the post. I was aware of this solution but it only works with anchor (decorate links). I can't make it work with an input button that submits the form.

Hi Óscar ( @ofernandezg )

 

So looking at the information from Google on their devlopers.google.com site:

 

https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/linker

 

I looks like you have two options

 

 1. You will need to call an updated linker option: - automatically_adding_linker_parameters

 

//Options
//false - not anchors
//true - forms

//Pure GA
ga('linker:autoLink', ['destination.com'], false, true);

//Tealium Variant
u.all('linker:autoLink', ['destination.com'], false, true);

 2. Create a click handler on the form with a call to the following: - manually_adding_linker_parameters

 

ga('[trackerName.]linker:decorate', element, [useAnchor]);

If you need any more specific help with implementing this, I would suggest raising a support ticket so one of our Support Engineers can help you directly.

Hi @adrian_browning

Sorry for delay getting back to you.

I tried the two options, with an extension scoped to Tag Especific and DOM Ready and I can't make it work, but if I use on my page the GA code it's working

(function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){
(i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o),
m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m)
})(window,document,'script','//www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js','ga');

ga('create', 'UA-XXXXXXXX-X', 'auto', {'allowLinker': true });
ga('require', 'linker');
ga('linker:autoLink', ['maindomain.com','targetdomain.com']);

That is very interesting, as the template does this support functionality.

 

Please can you raise a support case at https://community.tealiumiq.com/t5/custom/page/page-id/support-contact-form

 

And then we can then see why you are unable to do this.
