To go into the container that you need to work on, click on the name of the container. This will take you to the Workspace of the container.

Workspace is a place where you do all your work such as adding a tag, editing a tag, setting up triggers, variables etc.

Each Google Tag Manager container is identified by a unique alphanumeric id called container id.  Container Id is available to you on the top of each workspace within that container. This id comes in handy when you're using third party tools/plugins to implement Google Task Manager code on a website.  For example, in WordPress sites you will generally use a plugin to implement Google Tag Manager.

If you ever need to get the JavaScript code of Google Tag Manager code that goes on your web pages, then you can simply click this Container Id and you will get the Google Tag Manager code. (see the screen below)


Figure: Container Id is highlighted.
