First time user here. Can someone help me figure out how to add a linkedin profile URL, company name, and title to a contact record? Thanks.

As it stands, HubSpot only syncs contacts LinkedIn Bio by associating the contacts email address with their LinkedIn account. If you have a LinkedIn Sales Navigator account, you can use the integration to pull more information.

It would be VERY useful to be able to put in a contact's LinkedIn URL when HubSpot does not find them. I saw that it only searches for a matching email but the HubSpot UI allows me to put in their title, current company, etc and click search. It's very frustrating when all that information matches exactly and HubSpot comes back with not found. All you'd have to do is put the LinkedIn URL into that search window that apprears where the LInkedIn contact is displayed from a contact in HubSpot (bottom right column). Please forward this enhancement request.

To follow up on this, here's HubSpot's documentation on the HubSpot CRM and LinkedIn Navigator integration: https://knowledge.hubspot.com/articles/kcs_article/integrations/how-to-connect-hubspot-crm-and-linke...

Sales Navigator is £80 a month - not really a viable option for all of us. You pull the Company page link by default already. Why not do the same for a profile on a Contact?

 

To answer the original question, the Company should be linked separately, the Title will be pulled in via the LinkedIn Bio (assuming they use that email address for their LinkedIn - a lot of people don't use work email for LinkedIn to keep the account portable across a career). For the profile URL, you need to manually create a contact field, copy and paste it in.

Will the Linkedin profile link for the contacts get automatically updated once i have chosen to display the column in Contacts?

I agree..

In my industry hardly anyone uses his/her company email for LinkedIn.
