Can I use a 866 number and Google forwarding

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi all

 

I went to set up a call extension today and the option to select Google call forwarding for the enhanced call extension was not there.

 

Does this have to do with my toll free 866 xxx-xxxx number for my ads?  If I had a local number, would this appear?

 

I am really looking to be able to set up the minimum time that call has to last to be considered a conversion/good call.

 

Thanks

Hi John,

 

I've used 888 forwarding/call tracking numbers (3rd party) within call extensions w/Google Forwarding.

 

Can you share a screenshot of what you're seeing?

here are two screen shots, one with the issue and one w/o. Both are for enhanced campaigns.

 

Any ideas would be welcome.  I am thinking it is the 866 number at this point.
