When I’m planning tags for sites, I usually make own tags for different actions. However, I noticed I had a problem when I got asked “in which order are visitors doing actions on our page X”. Business owners want to see path reports for the visitor flows, did they first started a video or downloaded pdf etc. Yes, every information is surely tagged, but the data is in different prop/eVar variables and I can’t make nice pathing reports. (with segments you can do different analysis about the order, but too time consuming)
So yes, the answer is to enable one prop variable with pathing enabled and to this one prop always send information when something happens on the site: pageview, downloads, video play, form submissions… yes, every hit! This way you can easily create pathing reports about the visitor “paths” on your page or site.
You don’t need to hardcode the prop on your site if you don’t want to. You can easily do this with processing rules or DTM. (just make a rule that every time hit goes to Adobe -> send the “action name” to your “all information prop”)
