This short video (1:20) demonstrates how to connect your LinkedIn account with Please Share.
To post updates to LinkedIn directly from Slack, you need to connect your LinkedIn account with Please Share. This is a simple process but it does involve a few steps.
First, navigate to one of the Please Share updates that has been posted in one of your company’s Slack channels. It doesn’t matter which one.
From the overflow menu, select Sign in to social accounts.
This will prompt a pop-up message to appear in Slack.
Then, from the dropdown list in the pop-up window, choose Sign in to my LinkedIn account and select Submit. This will generate a temporary message with an authorization link.
Selecting the authorization link will take you to a LinkedIn web page where – by signing into your LinkedIn account – you can authorize Please Share to post updates to your LinkedIn account directly from Slack.
If successful, you will be taken to a confirmation page on the Please Share website.
Once connected, posting updates to your LinkedIn account from Slack only takes a few seconds.
