We are wanting to speed up our page load time and take off our GA tags and get the same data by using the GA extension in Launch.
Can we install the extension, remove the tags from being hard-coded on the pages and then put the code in the extension code editor?
Will that give us the same data or is not possible to set up the extension in a way that allows us to remove the GA code on our pages?
Moving hard code tag to GA launch ext is a good idea, not sure if this will help reduce page load time though. It will certainly help mange GA tag better. If installed correctly you should not see any impact over data collection.
