A Call Lead Source is a way to report and filter on how a customer learned about your company.

For example, you may invest into marketing your business on Angie’s List. Creating an Angie’s List Lead Source will allow you to mark Work Orders that were generated from Angie’s List, along with how much revenue they’ve generated.

This type of information can give you the insight on which Lead Sources you may want to invest more or less in.

Once a Call Lead Source has been added and used in FieldEdge, you will be able to report on this from the Dashboard and FieldEdge reports.

Get New Number

Use Existing Number
Use this option if you already have an existing number that you would like to associate to this Call Lead Source. This is only available when using FieldEdge Phone Integration, you will need to reach out to FieldEdge Support if you would like help with this feature or enabling this integration.

This button will allow you to leave this screen without saving any changes that may have been made.
