Find LinkedIn information on profile cards

Even before you connect your accounts, you may see some LinkedIn profile information such as a person's LinkedIn profile photo, name, company, and job title on profile cards in Microsoft apps. After you connect your accounts, you may see additional LinkedIn profile information. For example, a birthday or invitation to connect. When communicating with a colleague in Outlook, you can easily see if you and your colleague share a common connection on LinkedIn. Here's an example of LinkedIn information on a profile card in Outlook:

Updates from LinkedIn on profile cards

After you have connected your accounts, you can get updates about people you interact with. For example, if a colleague has a birthday, title change, or work anniversary, the information may show up on their profile card.

How can I see my own LinkedIn profile information on my profile card?

To see your LinkedIn information on your profile card, hover over your own name in a Microsoft app. For example, Outlook. Open your profile card and select the LinkedIn tab to see your LinkedIn profile information.

Your Microsoft account will only show information that you have made available on your LinkedIn profile according to your profile settings.

If you don’t see the LinkedIn icon in your Microsoft work or school account, your organization has disabled account connections.
