LinkedIn Integration coming to Teams

Microsoft Teams, Microsoft 365 Experts

From Microsoft Corporation
Technical Bulletin MC335277 · Published Feb 23, 2022

Message Summary

For those tenants that have LinkedIn integration available to their members, we are expanding its availability to Teams as a panel in one on one conversations. This is the first part of a series of updates which will also bring LinkedIn to the contact card in the coming months.  Initially this is limited to contacts within the tenant, but as the contact card updates are released, then this will be available for all contacts within and outside the tenant.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 89132

When this will happen:

We will begin rolling this out in mid-March and expect to complete by early April.

How this will affect your organization:

Once available, the new LinkedIn tab will appear at the top of the 1:1 conversation in Teams alongside the existing tabs for Chat, Files, Organization and Activity, and will work just like the contact card in Outlook does today.

You continue to have the same controls as before over the integration availability.  This is just making the experience available in more places for your members.

What you need to do to prepare:

Review your current configuration to ensure the appropriate experience for your organization.

To learn about existing controls, review: Integrate LinkedIn account connections in Azure Active Directory
