Share on LinkedIn

LinkedIn is a social network for work professionals. Using this action, you can share content via your LinkedIn account. To do this, add this action to your canvas, and configure it. Select the Access Token for LinkedIn. If you haven’t created one, you can create it by selecting the ‘Add New’ option.

In the ‘Comment’ field, enter the content/description/comment you want to share on your LinkedIn account. The maximum character length for this field is set to ‘700’. 

In the ‘Visibility’ field, specify who can see the content you have shared on your LinkedIn account by selecting ‘anyone’ or ‘connections-only’ option from the drop-down.  

Then, secify the title and description of the content in the ‘Title’ and ‘Description’ fields. In the ‘Submitted URL’ field, provide the URL of the content that you wish to share. Similarly, if there is any image accompanying the content, specify the URL of the image in the ‘Submitted Image URL’ field. 

Alternatively, you can directly insert the link of the content you wish to share in the ‘Comment’ field. It will automatically identify the title, description, and image from the link, and share the content. It is important to note that if you do not enter any value in the optional fields (Title, Description, Submitted URL, and Submitted Image URL), you have to enter a value in the comment field.

Once you are done with entering these details, click on ‘Next’, test the workflow and click ‘DONE’. Now, click the ‘Run’ icon located on the top right-hand side corner of the canvas to execute the workflow. This will share the specified content on LinkedIn.
