Works really well with Google Tag Manager easy to setup good, easy instruction both in a guide but also with a video so you can follow the steps with ease. Really recommend this plugin for using Google Tag Manager to track Gravity Forms. Thanks for this plugin, much appreciated!

This is the kind of a plugin where you want to look up the authors and give them five stars on all profiles they have. Integration with Google Tag Manager is simple, yet so much powerful and reliable. No more need to create separate Form event tags for multiple forms. In GTM, you create only one, and then the events parameters are beings set on each form individually, inside GF. They are fired only when the form is actually sent. Great work!
