New Changes to MCM Trackermap

We’re excited to share some recent updates to MCM Trackermap. In addition to a sleek new look, we’ve added some really useful functions to help you understand problems within your web pages. These updated tools help you uncover issues with performance and security, while keeping your site visitors’ privacy and confidence in your brand intact.

When you log in, MCM opens on Trackermap Livescan. You’ll immediately notice changes right away.

You can simply type in a URL. If it’s a secure page (starts with https), the system automatically inputs the correct protocol. If it’s not a secure page, it defaults to http. To ensure you’re scanning the exact site page you want to view, copy and paste the URL from your browser.

Once you click Start Scan, the system opens Overview. Functioning like a dashboard, Overview provides a comprehensive visual representation of the scanned site’s data.

Using the navigation tabs located near the top of the page, click on Trackermap to see the Trackermap you know and love. All functionality and options remain the same.

Click on a node within Trackermap to slide open the Tag Path information side panel.

Notice the Vendor’s name is now a link. Click on the Vendor title link to populate all Company information we have in our database.

If you are unsure of what something does, rollover the text and/or buttons within the interface to see Tool-tips.

Click on the white arrow at the bottom corner of the Tool-tip box to open Trackermap Help. This information panel provides "in-depth" technical definitions of all things Trackermap.

Timeline is still available, but there are some small changes. The graph still shows all tags in the order that they were called (regardless of redundancy) during page load time (from 0-5 seconds). However, you can now click on the Tag owner (vendor) name to pull up a side panel, giving an overview of the full tag pathway and latency numbers related to the selected tag.

Notice a new view, Call Tree (this view is only available in Live view due to the nature of the data). To better understand what this is showing: Trackermap looks at load time of a tag. Once a tag is loaded, then called to execute, it could call additional resources, which load across or after a page has loaded. As opposed to showing this as one tag, Call Tree shows the entire chain of staggered events, providing higher counts per tag and more accurate latency numbers.

Another new view, Node Tree (in both Historical and Live views), replaces the old Tree view. This simply provides a different, more linear way to view the data, with additional visibility into tag chain and redirect relationships by page. Viewing the parent/child relationship of the tags is easier to identify in this view.

Click Historical Scans, located at the top of the page if you’d like to look at past instances of your domain group and/or domains. Choose Date, Domain Group or Domain from the dropdown in the top banner. Then click View Trackermap.

Everything functions the same. Please note that in Historical view, you have the ability to view New Tags seen that week vs. the previous week.

That’s it! Enjoy the new MCM Trackermap and as always, if you have any questions or issues, contact your Customer Success Manager.
