Elements

Element Description Data Type
CountryCode The country code where the phone number is registered. The country code must contain a 2 character country code. The supported country code values include AR, AT, AU, BR, CA, CH, CL, CO, DE, DK, ES, FI, FR, GB, HK, ID, IE, IN, IT, MX, MY, NL, NZ, NO, PE, PH, SE, SG, TH, TW, US, VE, and VN.

Add: Required
Update: Required
string
IsCallOnly The option to show both your phone number and website, or just your phone number, to people seeing your ads on a smartphone. You might want to show only your phone number if your business requires that you talk to each customer.

Set this property to true if you want the ad extension to only show the phone number without a link to your website, and otherwise if you want the ad extension include a link to your website in addition to the phone number set it to false.

Add: Optional. If you do not specify this element or leave it empty, the default value of false will be set and the ad extension will include a link to your website in addition to the phone number.
Update: Optional
boolean
IsCallTrackingEnabled Determines whether call tracking is enabled for the call ad extension.

Call tracking is only supported in the United States and United Kingdom.

Set this property to true to enable call tracking, and otherwise set it to false.

Add: Optional. If you do not specify this element or leave it empty, the default value of false will be set.
Update: Optional
boolean
PhoneNumber The clickable phone number to include in the ad.

The phone number can contain a maximum of 35 characters and must be valid for the specified country.

If the campaign includes call and location ad extensions, this phone number will override the phone number specified in the location ad extensions.

Note that the phone number may be reformatted. For example, if you set phone number to 4255551212, it would be reformatted to (425) 555-1212.

Add: Required
Update: Required
string
RequireTollFreeTrackingNumber You can either use your own phone number or use a Microsoft Advertising forwarding phone number. A Microsoft Advertising forwarding phone number is a unique phone number that is routed to your business phone number. With a Microsoft Advertising forwarding number, you can track all calls from your ad so that you can analyze the ad's performance. This element determines whether a toll-free Microsoft Advertising forwarding phone number should be created for call tracking. This element can only be set if IsCallTrackingEnabled is also true.

Prior to August 2017, clients could set this property to true if a Microsoft Advertising forwarding phone number should be created for call tracking. Since August 2017, clients can no longer create a new toll-free Microsoft Advertising forwarding phone number. If you set this value true then the operation will succeed; however, a toll-free number will not be created and when you retrieve the call ad extension this property will be set to false. If a toll-free forwarding number was provisioned prior to August 2017 then this property will be true if the number is still active when you retrieve the call ad extension.

Add: Optional. If you do not specify this element or leave it empty, the default value of false will be set.
Update: Optional
boolean
