LinkedIn-Logo-2COne of LinkedIn’s hidden gems is its ability to act as a customer relationship management (CRM) tool – an incredibly useful (yet underutilized) feature for business professionals and job seekers.

Below is a step-by-step guide to adding notes to your connections’ profiles on LinkedIn.

  • Log into LinkedIn and click “network” then “contacts”
  • Click on the name of the contact you want to add notes to
  • Click on “edit details”
  • Click the area where you want to add information or notes and input the information
  • Click “save changes”
  • To export contact information and notes, click “export connections” and follow the prompts to save as a CSV (Excel) file.

This capability is available to first- level connections. Any information that you enter onto a connection’s profile is only visible to the person who created it; it is not visible to the profile owner or the public.
