LinkedIn for Outlook

LinkedIn, released a beta version of its Microsoft Outlook add.

What does LinkedIn Outlook Connector allows you

LinkedIn Outlook Connector allows you to keep up to date with your LinkedIn connections, integrates their contact information into Outlook, and allows you to add new LinkedIn connections right from your desktop.

Getting Started

Setting up LinkedIn Outlook Connector in Office 2003 and 2007 is straightforward. Just download Microsoft’s Outlook Social Connector, and then install it as you would any other piece of software.

Once you’ve got Outlook Social Connector ready to go, log in to LinkedIn and navigate to linkedin.com/outlook, and install the beta version of LinkedIn’s new add-on. Restart Outlook and a configuration wizard will guide you through the set up process.

To get LinkedIn functionality to work you’ll have to download a free add-on from Microsoft; however, this add-on only works with the 32-bit version of Microsoft Office 2010, and not the 64-bit version or with Office 2010 Home & Business Beta. So if you’re using either of these versions of Office 2010, the LinkedIn add-on will not work for you at this time.

Once you’ve downloaded the Outlook Social Connector for Office 2010, you will also have to go through a relatively rigorous set-up procedure that is not for the faint of heart.

You can find installation instructions on this page at Microsoft’s Website.
