LinkedIn integration in Outlook Desktop
What happened to the past integration with LinkedIn? Please reinstate that, even if you have to bring back the add-in for Exchange/Outlook Mail.
When adding new contacts, provide means of importing LinkedIn profile details, including pictures.
I want to have my Outlook contact info automatically sync'd when the person's LI profile changes (e.g. title, company, contact info). Since each LI profile has a unique URL, perhaps use this as the way to connect the contact card and LI profile.

With the insider build, there is some "integration" available https://support.office.com/en-ie/article/connect-your-linkedin-and-microsoft-accounts-dc81cc70-4d64-4755-9f1c-b9536e34d381
Until today it worked (again) in Outlook client. Then an update to Office and gone it was! Why???????
I had LinkedIn working nicely on the desktop for 1½ day and then it disappeared again. Works nicely in the online version (I never use). Please bring it back again.
There is all this buzz that LinkedIn was removed from the Social Connector add-in, because there was going to be native integration. When is that going to be a reality? The options are there, but they are circular (Outlook sends me to LinkedIn and LinkedIn directs me to Outlook). It's almost 2019, integrated professional network management should be a thing.

LinkedIn integration in Outlook was a great help in keeping contact information updated. Now I have to update them manually. Please, let us have the integration of LinkedIn contact information in Outlook back again.
It is crazy that you don't recognize the value of this. Why would you want to rob us of such a powerful collaboration tool?
How long more! We need the integration between LinkedIn and MS Outlook.

Link to Linkedin within e-mails: please open LinkedinApp instead of Edge.

Linkedin owned by Microsoft....
Linkedin promoted as a 'must have' for business......
Business users MUST to be able to sync Linkedin contacts with outlook! I recently tried to contact someone from my outlook contacts to find out later that they have left the company. His Linkedin had been updated, If you have the sync feature working i would of known!
Please hurry up with the integration of linkedin images into Outlook. I am tired at seeing none photos in my inbox. I want photos pulled from all sources.
Voted - Now that MSFT owns LI this should be enabled... Hope to see it soon!

I think LI killed it. I used to use this all the time and then it just stopped. Looking at the LI pages, they seemed to simply turn off the add-in for Outlook.
