Partial Google Tag Manager Container Export/Import

Partial GTM Export/Import

Hey, world of GTM experts and enthusiasts!

All of us, who have used Google Tag Manager, at some point might have faced the need to import certain tags from one GTM container (not the whole container) to another.

If you deal with few tags (up to 10), that is not a big issue as you can import the whole container and delete unnecessary tags in the destination container. The real headache starts when you need to do the exercise for let’s say 20 tags or more. To those who have been looking for the solution on how to partially import (export) a GTM container, we're happy to share the tool created by our analytics expert:

Step 1: Export the GTM container you want to use certain tags from. Here is a link describing how to export the container.

Step 2: Go to the link GTM solutions library.

There is nothing fancy there, we keep it simple and practical.

Step 3: Navigate to GTM Customer Tags Import:

GTM Custom Tags Import

Step 4: Upload the GTM container imported file (JSON), select the tags that you need to export and download the file (as shown on the below screenshot):

Step 5: Import the downloaded JSON container file to the destination GTM container:

Custom Tags Import Result

Note: the tool automatically exports triggers and variables used in the tags selected (as well as tag activity status).

Step 6: That's it! Enjoy!

P.S. Kudos to Alex Zakharych for creating the tool and making our lives easier.

    The official Shopify documentation guide covers adding GTM on Shopify Plus stores only.
    There are two key elements/areas to cover when adding the code to Shopify:
    1. ‘theme.liquid’ (which is essentially all non-checkout pages): you can access and modify ‘theme.liquid’ even if you have a non-plus Shopify account. Follow the instructions from the Shopify guide to add GTM to ‘theme.liquid’.
    2. ‘checkout.liquid’ (which controls the code on checkout pages): it can only be accessed by Shopify Plus account users. The ...
