it's possible tracking a telephone link event on a website in Google Analytics?

Sure is possible tracking 'mailto:' in html , but it's also possible tracking 'tel:'?

You can always add event tracking for click event of the link.

Short answer - yes, it is possible.

Inline GA
On the onclick event handler implement a GA event. It will fire any time users click on the link.

Hi,

You can also use the the autotrack.js library to automatically track user interactions like phone number clicks. Check the link below for more information.
https://github.com/googleanalytics/autotrack

Clicking on any phone number coded like <a href="tel:123456">phone</a> will send an event like this:

Category: Outbound Link
Action: click
Label: tel:123456

Hope this helps.
