User Level: 

    A downside regarding use of the Google Tag Manager module is that it requires the user to have an individual Google Tag Manager account, which also requires that the user have a separate Google account. How this is handled is up to whoever is in charge of the site, but it's strongly suggested that this account is one that multiple people can have access to. In other words, NOT your OSU G Suite account. Providing people with your ONID username and password to log in to your OSU G Suite account is actually a violation of OSU's Acceptable Use Policy Section 5.1.4 c. Instructions for creating a new Google Tag Manager account are provided below.

    As you're getting started, submit a Help Ticket to Web Services and make a request to have the Google Tag Manager module enabled so you can configure your site after you have the account initiated.
