Scenario

You want to check or enable a tag to fire not only on 'view' events (e.g. a page loading) but also 'link' events (e.g. someone clicking on a link).

Background Reading

Ensure you read the AJAX Tracking post before continuing. In a nutshell, Tealium handles calls in two main ways - 'view' and 'link' events. When you load a new page by default a 'view' event is triggered. However, to trigger a 'link' event the utag.link() function needs to be called (or utag.track()). The above post explains how this works.

Solution

1. Add the tag you want to check to your profile and save a version if you haven't already : if you don't save, you can't edit the template)

2. Go to 'edit' in the tag configuration >> Advanced Settings >> Edit Template

3. Check the template and amend as necessary

If your template looks like this on line 4 then your tag is only configured to fire on 'view' calls:

You can easily update this to fire on 'link' too as follows:

4. Now just 'Save Profile Template' and then publish to see your tag now being capable of firing on 'link' as well as 'view'
