Edit CRM Fields from LinkedIn

Once Leadjet's matches the LinkedIn profile you're visiting with a contact present in your CRM, an overlay of the CRM contact's information appears. Leadjet also allows you to configure & edit the CRM fields from LinkedIn, synchronizing all the changes with your CRM.

With Leadjet, you are able to change the default view of the CRM fields shown on LinkedIn to suit your needs.

You can add or omit certain fields and fill them in, directly from a person's profile.

How can I configure the CRM fields displayed on LinkedIn?

Leadjet creates a CRM overlay on top of the profiles of your contacts. By default, Leadjet will display email, phone, and company info, as well as tasks attributed to the contact.

If you wish to change this set-up or have additional fields displayed, you can do so without leaving LinkedIn. You can add or remove fields from this view by clicking on the pen icon on the bottom corner.

To begin, click on the "Edit Fileds" pen icon. And then "More fields".
