How best to manually add a linkedin URL to a Contact's record?

A few suggestions have been made for ways to add a Contact's LinkedIn URL to their Record but they seem to be automated tools such as https://www.linkedhub.io/ and the LinkedIn Sales Navigator integration. All useful stuff.

 

But sometimes I just want to enter the URL of a Contact's LinkedIn profile into their Record myself. It would be great if HubSpot then automatically populated their LinkedIn Bio info (if it hasn't already found it) but saving the URL itself is useful on it's own.

 

Do I need to create a new custom Contact Property (eg. 'LinkedIn URL') for this or am I missing an obvious existing method?

That's exactly what I did today. There isn't a URL field so just choose single line text and it will detect that it's a URL and link accordingly (launches a new tab too!)

I did that today as well.  I find it odd that there's not a "LinkedIn Profile" URL property as a standard property.
