LinkedIn recently announced that it will soon close down the API integration for all their partners. The company lately made adjustments to their Developer API agreement, which drastically limits the integration possibilities for third party software. Like many other companies, Teamleader suffers too. 

What changes for you?

Due to the adjustments to the LinkedIn API conditions it's no longer possible to directly copy contact and company information to Teamleader. The integration remains, but the features are limited. For example: it will only be possible to navigate to a LinkedIn-page of a contact through Teamleader.
