How it Works

Your TiQ account is organized into profiles. A profile typically corresponds to a website, a set of websites with similar or identical tagging requirements, or a mobile application. Your account and profile names are referenced in the installation code for the websites and the mobile applications.

Profile Libraries

A library is identical to a profile, but with the special ability to be imported into another profile. Libraries are used to manage configurations that are shared across multiple profiles.

For additional information, see Managing Profile Libraries.

Create a Profile

You can create one or multiple profiles at the same time. Only users with the Create Profile permission can create profiles. (Learn More)

Use the following steps to create a profile:

  1. Click your user icon in the upper right corner and select Manage Profiles from the drop-down list.
    The Manage Profiles dialog displays.
  2. Under Profiles on the left, click + Add.
    The Create Profile dialog displays.
  3. In the Name field, enter a name for the new profile.
    The name can be a maximum of 50 characters and only contain the following characters: a-z, 0-9, period (.), and hyphen (-).

    The following restrictions apply to naming: The names main and all are reserved and cannot be used, the name cannot contain a double hyphen (--), and the name cannot begin with a period, such as .profile2.

  4. You can optionally click the plus button (+) to add more profile names.
  5. Check any items in the Copy Elements From section to be copied from the current profile to the new profile.
  6. Click Create Profile to create the profile.

    The new profile display in the Profiles list.

    Creating a profile happens immediately. If there are any required libraries present, they will be linked to the profile automatically. Any variables based on AudienceStream attributes will not be copied upon profile creation. You must manually add attribute-based variables to newly-created profiles.

Copy the Tag Template for utag.js or utag.sync.js

Tag templates for individual tags were copied in the previous steps, but the templates for utag.js and utag.sync.js were not.

Use the following steps to copy the tag template for utag.js and utag.sync.js from the origin profile and paste them into the new profile.

From the origin profile:

  1. Log into the origin profile.
  2. Click your user icon in the upper left corner and select Manage Templates from the drop-down list.
  3. In the drop-down list, select one of the following to display the template code.
    • For utag.js: uTag Loader (Profile) UID:loader
    • For utag.sync.js: uTag Sync (Profile) UID:sync
  4. Enter Ctrl-A/Cmd-A to highlight the template content and then enter Ctrl-C/Cmd-C to copy.
  5. Click the X in the upper right of the window to close.

From the new profile:

  1. Log out of the origin profile.
  2. Log into the new profile.
  3. Click your user icon in the upper left corner and select Manage Templates from the drop-down list.
  4. In the drop-down list, select one of the following to display the template code.
    • For utag.js: uTag Loader (Profile) UID:loader
    • For utag.sync.js: uTag Sync (Profile) UID:sync
  5. Click Delete in the upper right corner to remove the tag template content.
  6. Enter Ctrl-V/Cmd-V to paste the contents copied from the origin profile.
  7. Click Save Profile Template to save the new template code.
  8. Save and publish your changes.
  9. Repeat the steps in this section for each additional profile if more than one profile was created in the copy.

Switch Profiles

Each TiQ account may contain several profiles. Use the following steps to switch to another profile:

  1. Click the account/profile drop-down menu.
  2. From the drop-down list, select the profile you want to switch to.
  3. Select the version of the profile to switch to.
    The most recent version is the default selection.
