Updated 8 months ago by Olivia Clark

Now that you’re all signed up on Drafted, you will be prompted to add your contacts. Here are some of our most frequently asked questions about adding your contacts.

How do I add my LinkedIn contacts?

You can find our step-by-step guide on how to request and upload your LinkedIn contacts here.

What information am I importing?

Drafted looks at your connectiond's name, job title, company (and email if it is available). Any other information on Drafted is found through publicly available sources on the internet.

What does Drafted do with my contacts?

Drafted looks at the information above to figure out who would be a good fit for a job at your company. These suggestions are given to you on the “Matches” page.

Will my connections be contacted by Drafted?

No - there are no automatic opt-ins that spam your address book. None of your contacts get unwanted notifications from Drafted. We treat your data with respect.

Will my LinkedIn connections update automatically?

No - your LinkedIn contact upload is static. To update your network in Drafted with new contacts, you’ll need to download a new contact file from LinkedIn. Don’t worry, we will send you an email reminder to update your contacts approximately every three months.

I want to make a referral for someone that isn’t in my Drafted network. Can I do that?

Yes! You can manually add contacts to your network by:

  1. Clicking “New Referral” in the top left corner of your screen
  2. Typing in their full name
  3. Clicking “Add New”
  4. Filling out the referral form as usual
