Functionality: Connecting to LinkedIn
Built directly into the Community Alumni app is the ability to connect and network with other constituents using LinkedIn. In the app, you will be given the option to login with either LinkedIn or email and password*. To connect your LinkedIn account, simply login with your LinkedIn credentials and everything will be set up for you!
By connecting to LinkedIn, you will be able to view information that others have included (as public) on their LinkedIn profiles, along with the number of connections you have in common and the ability to connect right within the app. Note that anything marked as private in LinkedIn will remain private. If you are not connected to someone via LinkedIn, you will not see his/her private information or feed, nor will he/she be able to view yours.
*If you choose to login using an email and password other than LinkedIn, you can still connect to your LinkedIn account at any time. To do so...
- Go to Settings, which can be found by either clicking the gear icon in the upper-right corner of the sidebar navigation in your mobile app or in your user menu if on the web version.
- Select "Connect with LinkedIn" and log in!
Likewise, you may disconnect from LinkedIn at any time.
