Following in the footsteps of WhatsApp, Twitter, and Gmail, Microsoft is bringing some much-needed changes to the Teams platform this year. LinkedIn profiles will be integrated in to Microsoft Teams chat.
In one-on-one discussions, users will be able to view their colleagues’ LinkedIn profiles. The update is slated to arrive in March and will be available to users of Microsoft Teams desktop and web editions all across the world, according to the company.
Although users can browse LinkedIn profiles in teams without connecting their LinkedIn and Microsoft accounts, if they choose to do so, the steps are as follows:
- Go to any one-on-one chat in Microsoft Teams.
- Select the LinkedIn tab from the drop-down menu.
- To connect your LinkedIn account, select sign-in.
- The user must now share data from their LinkedIn account with Microsoft staff.
- Simply connect your LinkedIn account to Microsoft programmes as a final step.
While connecting your Microsoft account to LinkedIn is not required, it is recommended for a better LinkedIn experience.
To use Linkedin in Microsoft Teams, follow these steps:
- Go to any chat in Microsoft Teams on your smartphone.
- To see the individual’s employment experience, abilities, endorsements, and more, go to the Linkedin tab.
Users can learn more about their coworkers by using this tool during their onboarding or while working on a specific project.
