Did we miss some functions? Leave a comment below, and let us know if there is some quick links to functions you need. Then we will try our best to update the page continously.
Useful links for everyone on LinkedIn
Your personal presence on LinkedIn
If you can not access your LinkedIn profile
If you can’t remember your password and no longer have access to the e-mail account you have associated with your profile, then you can verify your identity to LinkedIn. You can do it via this link
For this process, you must use a phone or a computer with webcam, some photo-ID (passport or driving license) and another e-mail address.
Download all your contacts
Did you know that you can download all your contacts in a spreadsheet?
Unanswered LinkedIn invitations you have sent
See who has not yet responded. You can also pull the invitations back if you change your mind (do not worry, they will not be notified).

See the news from all the companies you follow on LinkedIn
Did you know that LinkedIn has created an assembled news feed exclusively for news from companies you have chosen to follow?
The company’s presence on LinkedIn
Make a “follow”-button on your website
Many companies would like to have a button on their website, so visitors can choose to follow the company’s LinkedIn page directly by pressing that button. LinkedIn has made it easy to create a follow-button for the website. You just have to enter the name of your company, select the right one from the list, and select what the button should look like. You are then given a snippet of code, you can insert on your website.
Get your colleagues to attach themselves to the Company Page as employees
When people write that they work in a company on LinkedIn, it is not always that they get linked up correctly on the Company Page, so that they are visible as employees on the page. In that case, we need to help our colleagues.
Eliminate “wrong employees” from the Company Page
As starting point, LinkedIn recommends that you ask the person concerned about changing the info on their LinkedIn profile. However, if that is not possible, you can apply for LinkedIn’s help.
Get your ad approved
When you are creating Sponsored Updates these have to go through an approval process at LinkedIn. This is normally a quick process, but it may take up to 24 hours. We have sometimes experienced a longer wait where the ad is listed as “Under Review”. In these cases you can write directly to LinkedIn and ask for help – they often respond quickly and they can approve your ad manually.
Whether you’re managing LinkedIn groups, or is a member of one, there are certainly a few links there are good to know.
See which groups you are a member of
Want to leave a group?
Then simply select the groups from the list above you want to leave. When you are in the group, you just hold your marker over the “Member”-button in the upper right corner. You can select “Leave”. Click on “Leave” and you have left the group.
Change the order of your groups, and find easy access to group settings
Do you want to choose which groups that should be in the top of your group overview? Or do you want to go directly to the group settings? Then this link is a good help.
Get an overview over the groups you are not yet approved as a member of
If you continuously apply for becoming a member of different groups, you know that you must be approved as a member. But do you know whether you have become member of all groups?
