It’s easy to view a person’s LinkedIn profile directly in Teams. When you go to any one-on-one chat, you can quickly see that person’s experience, education, skills, and more. You can also expand your LinkedIn network and connect with people on LinkedIn without leaving Teams. 

Note: Your organization needs to enable the LinkedIn integration in Teams for you to access it. When your organization enables the LinkedIn integration, you can access LinkedIn in Outlook too.  

  1. In Teams, go to any one-on-one chat and click the LinkedIn tab.

Find out what you have in common with them, see your degrees of connection, and connect on LinkedIn without leaving Teams.
