How do I request a new activation
email in LinkedIn Sales Navigator?

If you haven’t received your initial activation email, reach out to your admin who can resend the invitation email or provide an activation link to you.

If you still aren’t receiving the email, please try the following troubleshooting steps:

  1. Add LinkedIn as a trusted email domain in your email’s address book, then add LinkedIn as a contact.
  2. Check with your email provider to ensure emails from LinkedIn aren’t blocked.
  3. Make sure the email with the invitation to Sales Navigator is the email address of an individual and not a distribution list or a role based email address.
    • A role account/alias is an account that isn’t associated with a particular person, but with an office, position, or task (ex: webmaster@, postmaster@, admin@, etc.). To ensure you get the most of LinkedIn, we recommend using a personal email address.
  4. In some cases, like password resets or security verification, you’ll need to request the admin to resend the email again after making any of the above changes.

Why is my record matching feature
not working in LinkedIn Sales Navigator?

Record matching issues between Salesforce and LinkedIn Sales Navigator, are generally caused due to step being missed during embedded profile installation, or due to individual’s edit permissions in Salesforce.

CLEAN DATA TIP: With Record Match Correction for CRM integrations, you can also verify and correct a CRM record match by clicking Edit match on an Enterprise profile, then View in CRM to confirm/create a new CRM match record.

Embedded Profiles installation missed steps

During Embedded Profiles installation, there is an additional step to drag down the LIMemberToken and LICompanyID fields into the top area for Leads, Contacts, Accounts, and Opportunities. This information can be located in the installation guide on page 8.

Additionally, for Accounts and Opportunities, there will only be one field available,
the LICompanyID Field.

Confirming edit permissions in Salesforce

To confirm that you have edit permissions in your organization’s instance of Salesforce, please reach out directly to your Salesforce admin.
