LinkedIn Contacts Manager – Overview

Bring together all the contacts from your address books, emails, calendars, and your LinkedIn network by using LinkedIn Contacts Manager. Collecting and storing all your contacts in one place will help to keep them up to date.

Note: Your contacts and connections aren’t the same thing.

You can begin using LinkedIn Contacts Manager by importing and inviting your email contactscreating and uploading a contacts file, and syncing contacts from other sources. Currently, only Google Calendar and Google Contacts can be synced, so old sources may be missing.

Once you’ve synced and imported your contacts, you can delete specific contacts to remove them from your LinkedIn Contacts Manager address book. If you’ve accidentally sent invitations to the contacts you imported, you can withdraw the invitations.

LinkedIn takes your privacy and the security of your data seriously. Learn more about the privacy of your information in LinkedIn Contacts Manager, and how you can access your account data.
