    Thanks for sharing your idea, Damien! I can definitely see how grabbing contact information quickly could be a big time-saver.

    There are currently a number of free Web Scraper extensions available for download in the Chrome Web Store that can work in tangent with Nutshell to quickly procure contact information.

    None of those solutions input the data directly into nutshell which would be the idea behind the suggestion.

    Hello, Damien. You are correct. There is not currently a way to automate the transfer of data directly into Nutshell from LinkedIn. You can read more about the attempts to create an API partnership with LinkedIn our Nutshell developers have made by reading our open letter to LinkedIn. The response we have gotten from LinkedIn is as follows:

    "We discussed your application with the team reviewing API partnerships. At this time, LinkedIn is not taking on new partners in the Sales category. We are looking at ways to support these types of integrations in the future, but cannot do so today. As a result, we see no path forward for you to continue using our APIs at this time."

    We are eager for LinkedIn to accept new CRM partners and would be thrilled to join.

    If you want to help us, please send an email to LinkedIn.

    You can also send a tweet to LinkedIn and ask them to open up their APIs.
