Waittimer- Config Overrides for utag.js

Hello, 

 

I have a use case where I need to use the option "waittimer" and set it to 3s. Last item in the documentation found here :

 

https://community.tealiumiq.com/t5/JavaScript-utag-js/Config-Overrides-for-utag-js/ta-p/14048

 

As far as I understand it's a global option. My questions are :

 

1. What's the downside of using this option? - e.g. if the visitor leaves the webpage before 3s - my bounce rate will be incorrect? or it will slow down the load time of the page?

 

2. How can it be used with Adobe Target - does it mean the Target will load the page and then - reload the page (async) or slow down the page loading (Sync) mode?

 

3. I have played around with dom_complete = true -- but it doesn't seems to do anything different - I thought dom_complete will load "all" external assets file etc - maybe I am not using it right.

 

I am keen to understand the negetive aspect of overriding waittimer, I am in a legacy enviornment - so my utag_data doesn't get the time to get populated before utag fires - I have managed to halt utag using waittimer - but I want to understand the downside of it. 

 

Many thanks.
