LinkedIn profile field for contacts

Often LinkedIn profiles of the contacts are quite important.

 

Unfortunately, there's no LinkedIn profile field.

 

There is a website URL field, but the putting the LinkedIn profile URL in the website field makes HubSpot think that the contact works for LinkedIn. i.e. the Website field is really for the company, not for the contact. 

 

(in our workflow, we care absolutely zero about companies, 100% about contacts...it's a B2C model)

I support the very same request, even for B2B flows!

It much more important than Twitter profile.

I support this too. actually we should be requesting a HS field type that can take a link, once saved it becomes an active link and opens a new browser tab or however HS thinks it works best. 

 

That way we can get any type of link included since not all clients have linkedin profiles. 

 

On LinkedIn, HS has done some integration with LinkedIn navigator but at USD 100 per month that's not cheap. A simple URL field type would go a long way.

It would be good if the app could scrape the profile picture from linkedin or any other social media ID.

Agree to this, we need Linkedin Id field which is common in most of the CRM and its useful to do due delligence.

Hi, as metion above. This is common in most CRM and we need it in Hubspot as well!

I have seen the option to use Integration with LinkedIn Sales Navigator:

But the price here is way to high in terms of what we need of the functionality.
