Users will no longer be required to bind their LinkedIn account to their Microsoft 365 account to view LinkedIn information on the profile card in Outlook for the Web. The contact email address is automatically submitted to LinkedIn for lookup (but not stored), and where a match is found, basic public information will be included in the Microsoft 365 profile card. Users will still have to bind if they want to see relationship info or info only visible to themselves and not public e.g. experience/education in common and skills/endorsements.
In addition to these improvements, LinkedIn integration includes Intro text from the LinkedIn member’s profile as well as recent LinkedIn posts and shared articles where available.
This non-bind experience will also be coming to Outlook Desktop, Outlook Mobile and Teams soon.
- Microsoft 365 suite
When this will happen
This change will occur in early November and conclude in early December for Standard Release tenants.
How this will affect your organization
Users will still have to bind if they want to see relationship info or info only visible to themselves and not public e.g. experience/education in common and skills/endorsements.
What you need to do to prepare
For administrators who have already disabled LinkedIn integration, those settings will be honored. If you wish to disable LinkedIn integration with Microsoft 365 refer to the instructions under additional information.
