FULL FABRIC supports integration with LinkedIn. There are different use cases for this integration. For example, you can allow new users to sign in with LinkedIn. You can also ask applicants to populate the experience section on their application with LinkedIn data.
In order to integrate with LinkedIn you must set up a LinkedIn application for your school, if you do not already have one, and then provide your LinkedIn application's details to FULL FABRIC support.
Please first contact your internal IT team or the relevant person to check whether you already have a LinkedIn application. If you have a LinkedIn application then please view the final step at the bottom of the article.
Please note that it is only possible to retrieve the latest professional experience entry of a user who syncs with LinkedIn.
