Create Numbers for Campaign-Level Tracking

You can create a CallRail tracking number to track a specific online campaign. When tracking an online campaign, you can set your tracking number to swap for a specific landing page parameter (say, utm_campaign=campaign1 and/or utm_campaign=campaign2). Then, you'll tag your landing page URL with the same parameter you're using for your tracking number. Our JavaScript snippet detects the parameter when a visitor comes to your website and swaps in the correct tracking number using dynamic number insertion.

To create tracking numbers for countries outside the United States and Canada, a member of our team will need to update your account first. Read this article to learn more about call tracking in your country.

Getting Started

In order for your campaign-level tracking number to swap as expected, your company's JavaScript snippet will need to be installed on your website for dynamic number insertion. Watch the video below for more information on the installation.

Create a Campaign-Level Tracking Number

  1. Click the Create (+) icon in the navigation bar on the left and select Phone Number.

  2. Choose the company where you'd like to add your new tracking number.

  3. The new number wizard will appear on your screen. The first question asks, "Where do you want to use this tracking number?" Select I’ll use it online.

  4. Select On my website since this tracking number will dynamically replace the telephone number on your website.

  5. Select Calls only since this number will track a single campaign instead of keywords or web sessions.

  6. Name your tracking number for your reports, and enter the forwarding number where your calls should route. Then, click Next: Tracking Options.

  7. Select the tracking source that this number should swap for on your website and enter your campaign parameters. Then, click Next: Choose a Phone Number.

  8. Choose your tracking phone number from the list of available numbers. If you want your number to have a different area code, click Numbers in a specific country or area code and enter your preferred area code. Then, click Next: Number Features

  9. Configure your whisper message and call recording. When you're finished, click Activate Tracking Number.

  10. To purchase an Australian or UK tracking number, please provide an address to associate with the tracking number. This does not have to be a local address, and can be your business's main address. If you're purchasing a French tracking number, a local French address is required. We'll save this address for future tracking numbers in the same area.

  11. Once you've completed the number creation process, you can choose one of the suggested next steps to further configure your new tracking number, or Go to Activity Dashboard to close the number creation wizard.
