To check your Google Tag Manager tags, follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your Google Tag Manager account at https://tagmanager.google.com/.
  2. Select the desired container from the Containers overview page.
  3. Click on "Tags" in the left-hand sidebar.
  4. You will see a list of tags that are set up in your container. You can use the search bar at the top to filter tags by name if needed.
  5. Click on a specific tag to view its configuration details.
  6. In the "Tag Configuration" section, you will find the tag's settings and variables that are applied when the tag fires. Make sure the settings are correctly configured.
  7. If you want to see what triggers the tag, click on the "Triggers" section. This will show you the events or conditions that activate the tag.
  8. Use the Preview mode to test and debug your tags in real-time. Click on the "Preview" button in the top menu, and follow the instructions to activate the preview mode in your browser.
  9. With the preview mode enabled, visit the webpage where the tag should fire. You will see a GTM container debug pane at the bottom of the page, showing any active tags, triggers, and variables.
  10. Check if the desired tag is firing correctly by looking for its name in the debug pane. You can also expand the tag for more detailed information.


By following these steps, you can easily check and verify your Google Tag Manager tags to ensure they are set up and functioning correctly.
