2Add at least four phone numbers to track All Traffic by choosing between “Local Numbers” and “Toll-Free Numbers“.

4Assign a Name and choose to direct your calls to a Destination Number. The Name can be anything you wish to name the numbers, but a good rule of thumb is to keep it relevant to the traffic source. In this case, we will name the numbers Dynamic Website Number as we are going to track all of the traffic coming to our site.
The Destination Number is typically your main business number, or the number you want your newly acquired tracking number to forward the call to when connected.
Choose whether you would like to see the Caller’s Number or Tracking Number for the Caller ID, turn on Call Recording, set up a Call Greeting and/or Call Whisper..
