Redirecting with Matomo

I am just starting to use Matomo but am thoroughly impressed with all the features it provides.

I have two questions:

  1. When visitors are coming to one of our websites, we re-direct them to client’s websites, when they click.

Our current solution looks like this:

When visitors come to one of our websites and they click the Learn More button, they get redirected to a Wordpress site that has the Pretty Links redirect plugin set up. The Pretty Links plugin then redirects visitors to the client’s website and allows us some tracking.

However the Pretty Links tracking is nowhere near what Matomo can do.

So I wondered whether I could create a tracking link in Matomo that would allow me to redirect visitors and track clicks and conversions.

Can this be done and if so, where would you have a link to a tutorial about setting this up?
