The GTM Copy/Paste Chrome Extension [Free extension]

With 7,000+ downloads, our GTM Copy/Paste Chrome extension allows marketers to easily copy tags, triggers, and variables from one GTM account to another without leaving Google Tag Manager. And the best part, it’s free to download on the Chrome App Store.

Install the free extension here

This Chrome extension lets you easily copy and paste any kind of tags, triggers, and variables from one account to another Google Tag Manager account within Google Chrome. All and more, coming up.

Today I’m super happy and excited to announce the GTM Copy Paste extension that’s been working on over the last few weeks actually.

This was built in JavaScript in combination with the GTM API.

Install it

First of all in the Chrome Web Store you can download it now just search for gt m, copy, paste and then it will come right up and you can add to your Chrome account. Now, this extension actually needs access to your Google Tag Manager account.


So there is an authorization that needs to be going on, you need to give access to actually read and then also create assets in your Google Tag Manager container. I will allow this.

How to Use it

Simply right-click on any tag, trigger or variable to add it to the GTM copy paste extension clipboard.


Once I do this, we see a little indication here from the icon of the extension what is actually in the clipboard and we have one tag right now this is the Facebook event Add To Cart. Now you already see triggers and variables here, you can obviously also copy any kind of triggers. So let’s do this and add any kind of variables as well.

And we see here we have them now in our GTM copy paste extension. We can go over to any kind of other accounts that we have available and we are actually able to edit and then paste our clipboard into this account.


All right so it should have been pasted and now we should see our Facebook event is copied over, our trigger and our variables as well.

Note: If you have any kind of triggers or varibales attached to your tag and this is part of the same clipboard or the same paste that we do then these triggers and variables will also be pasted and connected automatically to your tag. So you don’t have to worry about reconnecting your triggers and variables, just make sure they are actually included in the same paste and you’ll be fine.


So this is a quick look at the GTM copy paste Chrome Extension by MeasureSchool. I hope you found this useful. If you have any more questions, please leave them in the comments down below.

Don’t forget to download it and try it out for yourself here.

Hey there, could you choose more than one tag/trigger at the same time – mark it, ctrl + click or something like this? It would be useful for accounts with multiple tags.

Awesome extension!
