Getting started

When you use a CallRail tracking number in your Apple Business Connect listing, you can track all calls coming from your listing and have a full picture of a customer's journey across sources. In this article, you'll learn how to add a CallRail tracking number to your Apple Business Connect listing.

Creating or claiming an Apple Business Connect listing

If you haven't already, you'll need to create or claim your Apple Connect Business listing. If you've already done this, you can move on the next section.

You'll need to have the role of Administrator to create or claim an Apple Connect Business listing.

  1. Create or claim your Apple Business Connect listing. If you're not sure how to do this you can follow the instructions in Apple's support article.

    Please note: if you have a business with more than 25 locations or you have multiple businesses with multiple locations, you'll need an enterprise account instead.

  2. Enter your main business phone number in the initial location details. Once your location is verified, you can edit the listing to include your CallRail tracking number.
