Google Tag Manager

Google Tag Manager (GTM) is a great way to add Chatify widgets onto your website. Why? Because it allows you to add the Chatify code without having to edit the source code of your website.

Note: typically you will put GTM code on every page of your website, therefore it is only recommended you use GTM with Chatify Live Chat

If you are reading this guide, we are assuming that you are already using Google Tag Manager. If you're not and wish to use Google Tag Manager to deploy Chatify Live Chat, then you will first need to create a Google Tag Manager Account and set-up a container. Brief instructions on how complete this are as follows:

Setting up a Container
