Important Information Regarding Tracking
Calls are not inherently tracked by SharpSpring. If you put a telephone number into the click-to-call button, SharpSpring will not track the call event.
You will only be able to track button clicks if the link takes the lead to a different page, or if the link in the button is a Media Center asset. The redirecting links and Media Center assets require fully structured URLs that start with http:// or https:// in order to track.
As phone numbers lack these URL prefixes, they cannot be used to track calls. In the same way, placing a Media Center asset or a redirecting URL defeats the purpose of using a click-to-call button. Consider instead using a different button or link to initiate tracking.
