I have been using Matomo for quite a while with the old/traditional JS code snippet integrated in my Websites (for visitor tracking, campaign tracking and also e-commerce tracking). Everything is fine so far.
I have now had a look at the (relativly) new Tag Manager which seems to have some good advantages but I did not find anything (like a manual or an official documentation) what explains when I should use Tag Manager or normal JS snippet or even both or JS snippet integrated by Tag Manger. Are there any differences, upsides/downsides and how do both relate to each other. Could both methods eventually cause problems if used together?
I understand that Tag Manager is a new development that has been added to Matomo a while ago and now got more and more grown-up but I find it really hard to understand what is the best or even the official way to integrate Matomo into a Website. The existing documentations are either from former times or simply ignore the fact that there are concurrent/competing integration methods.
Is there any plan to provide a document/article to give a better overview to the world on the integration topic?
If I should have missed anything existing out there, I would love to get pointed to that here… Thanks a lot!
