LinkedIn Integration

LinkedIn in Microsoft profile cards now provide the ability to see information from LinkedIn profiles in Microsoft apps and services. This new experience, rolling out to first release customers in Outlook Web Access, SharePoint, and OneDrive for Business, enhances the way you collaborate and build relationships. It provides insights about the people you’re working with, inside and outside your organization, right from within Office 365.

For example, in the People app, when you hover your mouse over a person’s name, you’ll see a new LinkedIn Find Profile link. This link is also accessible on the person’s contact card. You can see summary information directly on the contact card, or view the person’s complete profile on the LinkedIn site.

This is a great way to familiarise yourself with the people you work with both inside and outside your organisation. I encourage you to give it a try.
