Tracking Links with Tealium Generic Tag

Hello,

We have a Tealium Generic Tag an our website. It works well with tracking page views. Is it also possible to also track links with a Tealium Generic Tag, and if so, does it need some special configuration to do this?

More details:

Our Generic Tag has type "Skript" configured. When I execute

utag.view({});

in the developer console, a tracking request is sent to the address configured in the tag. But when I execute

utag.link({});

no request is sent.

So my question is: Is it possible to make the Tealium General Tag sent tracking requests for links?

Thanks in advance and best,

Chris

Re: Tracking Links with Tealium Generic Tag

Hi Chris,

You could accomplish this by modifying the Tag Template for the associated Tealium Generic Tag. This can be found by clicking on your name in the top right hand corner of TiQ, then choosing the Manage Templates option, and finding the tag template you want to modify. Once in the correct tag template, find the line that reads   u.ev = {"view" : 1}; and update it to   u.ev = {"view" : 1, "link" : 1}; 

Then save the profile template and Save/Publish.
