Getting started with DTM. Our legacy analytics implementation (with which I'm only vaguely familiar) is based on s_code.js with the media and integrate modules and
some custom js code we have developed. We've decided to start using appmeasurement.js and its related sources (for media, integrate and visitor id) for this integration.
there that looks like it might have come from my 'managed' s_code. Does DTM re-implement the functionality from which ever s_code-ish code I decide to use? If so, what is
the purpose of specifying the s_code that is to be used?
The 'managed' s_code will be loaded in a separate script call when the page loads. DTM doesn't modify anything with your managed s_code, but simply does not load it when needed. Here is a screenshot of what I am referring to:

s-code-contents... is the file that gets loaded dynamically for your analytics tool that contains the 'managed' s_code for your analytics tool.
So, the purpose of specifying the s_code is just the same as legacy analytics implementation. It is just like include s_code.js on your page, but now can be managed a little better.
You are welcome. If you feel like I answered your question sufficiently, will you mark it as answered so others who come looking for similar answers can filter by answered questions?
Thanks for the excellent explanation.
