To add your credential information to LinkedIn, you will need to enter some information in a form on LinkedIn manually. Accredible will show you all the information we have available and make it easy to copy and paste it into the form on LinkedIn.
First, click on 'Add to Profile' in the Credential sidebar. Then, click the 'Get Started ...' button on the bottom right of the dialog that appears - this will open up the LinkedIn form in a new tab. If you are not logged in to LinkedIn already, they will prompt you to do so.
Entering your Information
On the 'Add certification' or 'Add Education' form that opens on LinkedIn, you will either have to type, or copy and paste the values from your Accredible Credential into the new form. If you click 'copy text' beside each available field, it will copy the information for you, saving you time highlighting and copying. You can then paste it in the corresponding field on LinkedIn (right-click > paste, ⌘ + V, or CTRL + V).
Sometimes, we won't have all the information you might want to enter into the LinkedIn, or it won't be in a format that's easy to copy and paste. Don't forget to make sure that the toggle shown here matches the one shown on the Accredible form - and the date dropdowns match the months/years we show you.
Adding to Profile as Education
If your credential is from an educational organization such as a University, you will see different fields like 'Field of Study', 'Activities and societies', or 'Media'. Accredible won't have all this information as it might not be pertinent to your credential, or might not be provided by your issuer. If any information is missing, we will let you know that it is 'Not provided' and will need to be entered manually - if it is required by LinkedIn.
