Connecting to LinkedIn - Step-by-step Instructions

Updated 5 days ago ​by Aubrie Przybysz

Step 1: Click Add LinkedIn 

Make sure you don't refresh your browser while connecting your LinkedIn. 

Step 2: A new window will open for you to download a file of your LinkedIn connects. 

Step 3: Select "Pick and choose" and check off "Connections" and "Profile". 

Step 4: Click request archive. 

If LinkedIn says you've reached your limit for file downloads, you'll be able to repeat these 4 steps the next day and receive your download. LinkedIn limits to one download per day. 

Step 5: Close the window and select "my request is saved." 

Step 6: A 60-second countdown will pop-up and by the end of the countdown your file download will show up in your downloads. 

LinkedIn will also send you an email telling you your file download is ready. 

Step 7: Drag and drop the entire zip file into Drafted. 

If you receive an error message try dragging and dropping that same zip file again. Make sure it's still in zip form and not in folder form.
