  2. Click on the Recruitly icon located next to the profile.

  3. Select the option to add the record as "Lead/Contact/Candidate" in the form opening on the right-hand side.

  4. The details of the LinkedIn profile will be parsed automatically by Recruitly.

  5. Review and add/edit any additional details as needed.

Note: The Chrome Extension also notifies you in case the person is already in your Recruitly database. Select the record to update/edit details.

Here are a few things you would want to know about the Chrome Extension

It works with LinkedIn FREE, LinkedIn Recruiter Lite, LinkedIn Recruiter Pro, and LinkedIn Sales Navigator subscriptions.

It doesn’t use your LinkedIn allowance - so there is no limit on how many records you can add using the extension. But watch out for the no. of profiles you view per day, LinkedIn might introduce/already have limits on that too.

You can directly add leads, contacts, or candidates from LinkedIn to your Recruitly database with one click.

You can add/edit details about the person you’re adding while on LinkedIn itself.

You can add notes and reminders, for example, to call the candidate or drop an introductory mail to the lead.

You can directly add the lead/candidate to the Pipeline via the Extension.

If the person is a candidate in your system, you could still add him/her as a lead/contact.
