LinkedIn connector

Microsoft is introducing a very useful connector for automated workflow service, Microsoft Flow. The LinkedIn connector is now available for Flow. LinkedIn is the world’s largest professional network with more than 500 million users in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide.

The LinkedIn connector for Flow will enable a user to share content with the right audience of professionals.

Some common scenarios of flow enabled content sharing could be like posting an article on the behalf of your company or from your individual profile.

Automate posts to multiple social channels

Using Flow, you can post an article at a pre-defined schedule or from a pre-determined source such as an RSS feed. Similarly, you can create a workflow to post to multiple forums at once and automate mentions using various social handles.

You can also source the content from an email or OneNote and automate localization using the Translate connector.

Here are a few related templates that show off these scenarios:

Streamline marketing requests

Channel managers can streamline content or marketing requests using the Approvals feature in Flow. For example, if an employee fills out an article request (e.g. using an online forms service), you will receive an email message to review the post. If approved, the content can be automatically posted to LinkedIn along with a Twitter mention.
