Tags fire in response to events. In ClickFlare Tag Manager, a trigger listens to your web page or mobile app for certain types of events like form submissions, button clicks, or page views. The trigger tells the tag to fire when the specified event is detected. Every tag must have at least one trigger in order to fire.

Triggers are evaluated when code on the page or app is executed, and associated tags are fired or blocked when the trigger conditions are met.
