Thanks Suzanna, We're hoping to roll this feature out more widely in the near future as Linkedin expands their access.
Hi, I also notice one thing as well, as I was trying to post something into a LinkedIn group, I wasn't allowed to add in additional details to my discussions. Therefore I am always limited to 200 characters. Is there another way to include a separate discussion topic, with additional details and attaching a link to it?
I still can not access my LinkedIn company page.
From my understanding I should be able to connect to my groups and my company profile. However, the only thing I can access is my groups.
I tried adding this new feature to my dashboard, but the only LinkedIn option I have is to add my profile. When I clicked on the LinkedIn in Hootsuite link above, the webpage says that it's only available in beta mode to Enterprise clients. But this blog says that it is available to everyone starting Oct. 6.
I just want to be able to manage my LinkedIn company page from my dashboard, not my profile.
I have been waiting for this feature for ages! However it doesn't do everything that I had hoped for. LinkedIn groups have a Jobs tab where people should post job requirements so they don't appear in the discussions. This feature needs to include the option of posting to the job tab. Any chance of this?
Hi, love that groups have been added, as I have three that I moderate. One question though: why do some show up when I connect my LinkedIn, and some don't? I have eight or nine groups that I'm a member of, and at least one does not show when I connect to LinkedIn. That one happens to be the most important one, of course. :) Any ideas why?
Why are only some of my groups visible for scheduling posts? I am looking for one group in particular to schedule posts to and it is not on my list of available groups?
That's amazing! I've been wanting to get more involved with linkedin (and stay away from their clunky groups interface)! Thanks !:)
Thanks for reaching out. Currently, the LinkedIn Company Page status update feature is only available to select HootSuite Enterprise customers who apply for a private beta program. You can apply here.
Thanks for reaching out. Our developers are working towards even more functionalities. Post your suggestion to our feedback channel.
That doesn't sound right. Try removing your LinkedIn account from the dashboard and then re-authenticating it. If you're still having problems visit the Help Desk for further assistance.
I noticed the same issue when trying to add groups for scheduling. Finally discovered that you can only connect 'open' groups (i.e those that allow anyone to join and do not require administrator approval.) If you log into Linkedin to view your groups and see a little padlock symbol beside your group name, than you will be unable to connect it with Hootsuite, unless the adminstrator unlocks the group.
Hope this helps,
That's odd. Try removing your LinkedIn account from the dashboard and then re-authenticating it. If that doesn't work visit the Help Desk for further assistance.
I am confused like John Vasko. I have been trying several times to get this to work with posting to our LinkedIn company page with no success. We are currently a Basic user and Ryan's blog article clearly states "LinkedIn in HootSuite will be available Thursday Oct. 6 to all HootSuite users including HootSuite Pro and Basic customers." — When will this be available for Basic users? or will it? Either way, this blog post needs to be modified. Thanks! Glad you are moving in this direction!
It would be nice if this were more explicitly stated. I've been trying to get the pages to work and finally found this blog post comment. It didn't seem to be clear in the blog post.
