    I'd like to know if the world would end if I set up Google Tag Manager - tracking Analytics and Adwords - in concert with GAfWP?

    Or indeed if there were any plans to accommodation GTM within GAfWP in the future?

    If you have Analytics tracking enabled in Tag Manager and have this plugin running as well, you'll totally bork up your data, Matt. Your Bounce Rate will be next to nothing and your pageviews will be artificially doubled, among other things.

    The Analytics tracking script can only be fired once per page for your data to be accurate. Having Tag Manager and this plugin at the same time would fire the tracking twice per page load.
