Tel links, sometimes called telephone links or call links, are links that when clicked, redirect to a telephone number instead of a web address.
Tel links are of the form:
When a user clicks on a tel link, their device will offer to call that number.
Tel links work just like mailto links on Linkly, and support all the normal features.
Linkly allows you to shorten, track and redirect tel links.
Click Create a New Link from the main menu.
In the Destination box, enter a number in the format tel:+(country code)-(telephone number), as below.
In the Nickname field, give your Linkly link a nickname so you can find it later. This is private and the end user will never see this.
Click Save Link.
On the Create New Link form, under Targeting, click Country, and enter the telephone numbers for each region.
Any not covered by this list will go to the main Destination at the top.
When you create a ‘Tel’ link, Linkly automatically generates a QR code that you can distribute that, when scanned, will invite a user’s device to call that number.
You can click on the QR code to enlarge it.
If you can scan the code, you can see the result (for example here, on an Apple iPhone):
All of Linkly’s automatic click tracking and reporting functions are available for tel links, just as they are for any kind of link.
To see how many clicks your tel link received:
Click Links from the menu.
Find your tel link by nickname in the list.
Click the Report button.
All normal reporting functions work on tel links
Tel links work just like regular links and mailto links on Linkly.
