Need Auto-Saving for Drafts

I spent about an hour carefully crafting a reply to a message, had assembled a bunch of links and useful information for the recipient, and had to navigate away from LinkedIn momentarily to grab a link. When I switched back to this app, LinkedIn opened to the main landing page and when I reopened the message I had been composing a reply to, the text field was empty. I lost an hour of work and I feel so frustrated, distraught, and disheartened. Auto-save for in-progress messages is pretty basic functionality for most messaging programs and if your app had had it, I wouldn’t be in this situation. I wish I could setup a this app auto-response that directs everyone who messages through this app me to contact me on a different interface, so that I could avoid using this app’s messaging tool entirely. Objectively, LinkedIn is basically fine aside from this issue and does not really deserve only one star. I’m just still reeling from the emotional blow of this experience and looking for an outlet for my frustration as well as to share this feedback with you while it’s fresh and in a way that will help your team feel the pain that can be caused by this product gap and really understand the impact. Thanks for reading.

Unprofessional customer service and inaccurate algorithms

After using the application for quite a while that I have added too many connections that I have never talked to. So recently I was trying to clean up those connections. Because I didn’t find any option to delete all unused connections all at once so I just manually deleted them. All of sudden I received an system notification that I was using a third party software and restricted for log in in 1 hour. I was so frustrated that I never used anything like that and I was just simply cleaning up my unused connections. I mean if this app has the option to let me delete them all at once then I don’t need to manually delete one by one and create a ‘high volume’ as they claimed. It is the inaccurate algorithms that mark me as something called ‘using the the third party software’. In fact I don’t even know there exists this kind of third party software. The customer representative was like this is a done deal that you are using the 3rd party software and any tickets regarding to this would be closed automatically. So this app made a mistake that they don’t admit it. And the customer has no right to point it out! See this is the way how they treat their customers!

linkedin (and the rest of social media) has become terrible

after being a paying premium this app member for years, my account was suddenly deleted by this app simply because i chose to talk openly with others on it about being treated for sickness i’ve dealt with that was related to the moderna vaccine - and trying to spread helpful information to others who may experience the same issue. i’m also a single parent trying to find work ASAP after the past two years of struggle. this app has been deleting actual doctors who have been trying to help with this stuff as well. it’s clear the people in this app’s trust & safety department don’t care about any of this and have joined the insane groupthink cult governing too many of these companies now, censoring anyone who might displease their advertisers, even to their userbase’s detriment. the fact that this app has started using engagement and suppression algorithms like twitter and facebook is making it an increasingly more toxic environment as well. i’ve switched to indeed. this app has become absolutely inhumane and will sink its own ship if this is how it continues to conduct business.

One step forward, ten steps back

Updating my review (Jan 15, 2022): Everything below PLUS app freezes when trying to post or upload a photo. (Yes, I deleted and reinstalled.) No such thing as tech help from what I can see. Just consumer forums and FAQs. Down to 1 star and deleting from my phone. —— I used to enjoy LinkedIn, but it seems that it is getting less and less user-friendly on iPad and iPhone. For example, the landing page and profile page do not mirror the most important features that are on the laptop version. It would be nice to be able to easily view my recent updates and make changes to all of my profile sections--not just certain ones--from LinkedIn . A new thing I've noticed now is that some articles or links can't be opened in browser or forwarded through email/text. The "forward" arrow icon pops up with a "cancel" message instead and no other option. So weird. Sadly, the "app support" is just a forum of somewhat useless info, which is why I'm posting here. Hopefully the designers will read everyone's feedback on App Store and correct these issues in next update.

Serious VoiceOver accessibility problems

I am a blind person using the screen reader voiceover for iOS and I am having some serious VoiceOver accessibility problems. For one thing, in the new version, when I double tap on my Contacts, LinkedIn crashes every time. Secondly, when I am browsing through my people you may know section, LinkedIn get slower and slower and slower the longer eyebrows. Thirdly, if you were using voiceover, there is no option to remove someone from your people you may know list so that you do not see them anymore. The accessibility problems with LinkedIn used to be somewhat minimal. I am really looking forward to seeing LinkedIn fixed and using this app again. It is one of my favorite social networking platforms. I apologize if other people are bored by this review, but this app also does not have any where in LinkedIn or on LinkedIn support page to provide feedback about LinkedIn . I would also be kind of nice if developer of this app provided details about its updates in its release notes, but many App developers don’t do this. It’s just a pet peeve.

Horrible Interface

I swear this site has provided me with so much stress just trying to set it up. I didn’t dropped out of college and I left my job but they are both in my interests and I cannot change them. Whenever I open LinkedIn it tells me to finish updating my profile but I don’t have anymore information to add. There’s no way to say no. When I tried to leave things blank because they don’t apply to me I couldn’t. I got a notice that I had shown up in a search but when I opened the notification I was taken to a page within LinkedIn that did not work without a laptop. Why would this happen on the mobile app? It makes no sense. I’ve made all the connections I want to for now but every time I open LinkedIn I have to skip through the page to make connections with random people I don’t know. LinkedIn and the website are infuriating to attempt to use. I use all kinds of other social media that work at least decently. This platform is by far the most angering to use. Maybe the team is overworked or has no time to fix these issues, but they are too glaring and long lasting to still be around.

Only sort of useful

An account is basically required by potential employers if you’re applying to white collar jobs, but is incredibly difficult to sort thru or actually get a response from companies- especially if you are applying thru this app itself. Would recommend only using LinkedIn to find companies that sound interesting, vetting them thru glassdoor, then applying via the company website itself. Suggestion 1 for better UX: limit applications to 100 per job with job listings closing automatically upon hitting 100 apps received. I am tired of seeing open job listings with 100+ applicants because i KNOW that the hiring managers are only skimming the top 5% of applicants from the pile and then underpaying them for their experience. Suggestion 2 for better UX: Years of required experience being listed as a filter within job listings search. I am not interested in a job that pays entry level wages or says “fast paced environment” and then requires 5-7 years of experience AND a bachelors.

Needs improvement

I was just trying to apply to a job on this app. They said to contact the employer by email and provided the email. When I press and hold this app does not allow you to select text to copy and paste into your mail. The email is also not a link I can click on to email. I unfortunately have to manually type in the long email letter by letter going back and fourth. Please fix this. I was also recently searching for jobs and reading a number of job descriptions. Many were in my field but did not apply to me. I would like to be able to hide them so I don’t see them in the future. Don’t see a way to do this. I only see Apply and Save buttons; no hide. When viewing a clients portfolio web link and clicking on it nothing happens within this app. This link should open up in Safari; I can not copy/paste it into Safari either and have to go back and fourth typing letter by letter.

Changes to LinkedIn.

I too am very disappointed with this app and the direction it has taken. This previously was a great site for people to communicate with other people and companies. Whether it was trying to get a job, improving their position, finding a new workplace due to moving to a new area or trying to move up to a better job, talking with others about how to improve their job skills so they can prepare for a better job or keeping in touch with friends they worked with in the past or, even better, finding old friends and learning how to stay in touch with them. It WAS a great site. Now, as the previous commenter said, this app is now just another Facebook or Twitter. It’s totally lost all the professionalism it started with. If anyone in power within the this app organization reads this comment, please, please, PLEASE change the format back to what the original people or person had as their vision. If you don’t, I can foresee this site going down the tubes. I, for one, will do my best to start a new site with only one goal... to make a website for companies and individuals to get together and help each other grow both as a company and as individuals who want to help a company grow and a company willing to help their dedicated individuals grow within the company. Also, have learning institutions small and large contribute to the individuals growth. Is anyone out there with me on this?

The absolute worst networking app...

this app is the absolute worst, corrupt, and non user friendly social app out there. There are too many reasons to even begin mentioning all of them. Just to name one: if a user wants to unfriend or leave a group, this app intentionally makes it impossible to do so on the mobile app. I’m also still dealing with a “glitch” that LinkedIn had a few years ago. Without giving any permission to access my iPhone’s contacts, this app automatically dumped every one of my this app contacts into my iPhone’s contacts. Well over 500 contacts were combined with my personal contacts. Not a big deal you say? Well those contacts birthdays were then automatically also added to iPhone’s calendar. Everyday I would have at least a couple of these birthdays showing. For well over a year I was manually removing these contacts one name at a time. this app admitted to the error. Thanks that did nothing to help. So at this point I have zero trust in the integrity, honesty, or reliability of this app.

Chronological content feed - second attempt.

this app... I love your platform. I have already posted a comment on the lack of a sort by “recent” function on for iOS. When I’m on my phone, the work around is to go to your mobile site, then request the desktop site, then select “sort by: recent”. The most recent update you just pushed out now has “lives” or something that feels like a clone of Instagram/YouTube/Snapchat/Facebook, etc. I do not subscribe to these platforms because I believe this app is the only social media platform of any substance. There is quality content and networking happening everyday. Why did your newest update add a cookie-cutter “lives” function and not a simple “sort by:recent” function. Why am I seeing 3 week old posts with recent posts scattered about. Totally ridiculous... The one platform I thought was doing a service to a community of professional people is slowly becoming just another social media platform.

eh

I honestly have never written a review before, but I left this app because of this when I was fond of building connections on this app. However, someone had to make me very uncomfortable. this app is for professional use. When posting, there should be a sensitivity filter so what ever comment or post is being shared on this app directly is not hurtful or disrespectful. I had a horrible experience with someone disrespecting my profession and the person said “in ms your considered a joke” on my post that involved my profession having an appreciation week. That is the total opposite of what this app in is used for. Update: it’s sad to see that my review was overlooked and not cared about. Bullying or any form of making someone uncomfortable especially on a professional job app should be taken seriously. You should be able to post about your profession without someone trying to undermine a position. What a shame. Adding on to my review: I hope this app is able to talk with him, and give him a warning. It’s sad because I did not want to leave this app, but because of this behavior that should not be tolerated I left and it was probably for the best. I just wanted to be recognized for all the hard work I do for my job and post it on my page and someone had to ruin it all. I know it’s not you this app, but I hope you can help me.

Please add an unlimited word count

I love this app, but would like to see an unlimited word count. There are so many times that I have a post that exceeds the allotted word count and it’s frustrating. I could condense what i need to say most times, but sometimes I need to be able to say more than what this app allows. If the post is good, people will read it. If not, they don’t have to read it and can just scroll on past. I’m sure if you took a poll from other this app users, you would find that most of them would agree that this app needs an unlimited word count. Don’t limit it solely for the purpose of making sure people’s posts are shorter. Give people the opportunity to add as much as they need to their posts. Sometimes you need to be able to add more to your post to properly say what you need to say because tightening your word count doesn’t always cut it.

Horrible

The newest update has them limiting your preferences for your job search an forcibly showing you state wide jobs like that helps. If someone like myself has set up job preferences why take them away and why start showing jobs to them that are outside of their preferences like a job search isn't already hard enough and tiring enough. Now I'm every time I open LinkedIn instead of being able to scroll through the recommendations I have to create different searches because the jobs recommended to me are 8+ hours away and don't interest me in the slightest. Just because I live in a state doesn't mean I'm comfortable commuting far and doesn't mean I'm trying to relocate to the opposite side of it. So who's dumb idea was it to add that useless and annoying feature that shows jobs to people outside their now very limited preferences. I don't want to be shown state wide jobs and according to the customer service rep it's a feature I can't manually get rid of. Dumbest update to date.

Option to improve feed needs to be improved

LinkedIn is solid and very easy to use. My complaints are the content in the Feed and that the option “improve my feed” really offers no real options except adding new people to follow. It should be flexible and let you choose what you want to see more of OR less of. For example, in my feed I don't need to see every single time a connection “likes” something. I also remember I always used to see when my current connections connected to new people. I used to see those a lot every day. That was helpful info if a contact connected to someone new in my industry. It worked well in conjunction with the other “people I may know” info. I almost never see those types of updates anymore in my feed. Can you explain why the feed offers me zero flexibility to see the things that are most important to me?

What is going on !!!!

I’m a huge fan of this app but Im unable to access anything right now!!! I am not unable to respond to my messages, or update anything….as soon as I try I am forced to open LinkedIn that at first said I didn’t have an account so I reset my password….. even though I just had it open online…. now LinkedIn won’t open because it’s prompting me to fill out a page about my future job hopes and dreams that goes blank when I attempt to response. I don’t understand why I can’t use my online account anymore apps aren’t dependable!! All I wanted to do is update my resume and read some articles! I apologize for my frustration I know it’s an app thing! Please please please fix this issue!!!

Feel abandoned

My LI app will no longer run, I'm forced to upgrade LinkedIn , but my iPhone doesn't support the new minimum de for the latest app. Sad LI made that decision to not support earlier sw versions :( and being in transition spending $1k on new phone isn't the smartest idea right now. Laptop only going forward :( Still abandoned- their support said delete app and reload, there was hope as when I was reloading it said that it would load the sw that was compatible with my phone and that some features may not work. Ha, who knew the feature that wouldn't work was LinkedIn itself... they have a screen that comes up stating "update for the latest sw" but you can't get out of that loop, my phone doesn't support latest iPhone sw so it can't get the latest LI download. A silly loop they could correct if they wanted, I guess they don't want to, they closed my case because I didn't respond back in the hour, like all I have to do is mess with LinkedIn, ugh. Now you know why I feel abandoned...

App crashes and crashes again.

I downloaded LinkedIn again because I thought it would be easier to use on my phone. I’ve been using it for about 30 minutes and it has crashed 3 times. It crashed while I was sending a request to connect. I was attaching a message to this request because the person doesn’t know me. Now, It has sent the request and I can’t finish my message. I don’t know if it attached what I typed already or not. Given that this app is a tool to help people network and make professional connections, this is more than frustrating. Now, to reach out to this person, I would have to pay for a premium account and use “in mail.” I’ll not be using LinkedIn anymore which is a serious inconvenience. I stopped using the Linked In app years ago because it would lead to accidental connection requests while scrolling through searches or suggested connection.

Hate speech from other LinkedIn members and employees

Not a safe place to have a professional opinion in most professions. Especially if you are a women. this app does not respect women whom have professional scientific reasoning and professional opinions that vary from the political slant posted by either a member or otherwise this app; however this app will continue to push the political slant into your feed continually inviting you to acknowledge the political topic which is slanted and not academically or professionally sound. If you don’t like it and if you contribute your intelligent, professional and academically sound comment this app members state hate things to a person such as Members stating hate statement to me and others I have witnessed ). Very disappointed in the lack of professionalism from this app employees whom allow the members and themselves to be so hateful to women and others on this app whom state professional scientific academically sound verbiage on a topic.

I HATE the saved job changes in mobile app

Please leave this section as-is. I have spent YEARS building my saved jobs list and organizing it to my liking, and now you are auto changing it and making my saved information harder to access. Seeing them in one list, in order of save date was much more helpful than moving some to an unnecessary “archive” list. We already could already see which saved jobs were no longer available (aka “archived”) so this literally provides no new value other than altering saved user information. If this saved jobs features goes away (or access to old saved posts) I will literally quit using this app that same day. It’s by far the most valuable feature and pretty much the only reason why I use LinkedIn. Thank you.

Linked-Book

It’s a shame this app has gone the lame -childlike FB direction allowing posts which mirror FB of selfies, family outings, dinner plates and gifs / memes flooding the “business network” feed and constant / annoying and unrelated to your profile or interests .....posts/ads which have no option to “delete / not see” in the message post options? They still have yet to set up a message system that is fully functional... who wants to go and endlessly click on and select a message and click on then ....3 processes to delete it??? Where is “select all” in the in the in-box to simply delete all checked messages? And where is the right sweep to delete an individual message or conversation?? If you want to be like everyone else’s “like” social platform and not unique any more for real business networking function / needs, than at least catch up to the rest of the social fluff sites which have functional message management.

Feature Idea.

As a job seeker persona I’d like a feature that allows me to block staffing agency’s from contacting me or looking at my profile. Also something that allows me to filter all staffing agency job postings out of my search specifically. Why I’d find this useful as a job seeker is staffing agencies in my entire career and experience aren’t that effective. Largely the roles are bait and switch or the job doesn’t exist in an official capacity like having a budget, a timeline, interview process. As a user I find staffing agency personnel mostly spam. They aren’t honest and job seekers cannot trust the roles posted. Also make an algorithm that detects repost and mark them as reposted. It should probably account for timeline of when and how long it was posted so it can decipher between new post verse a repost. A lot of the staffing agency just repost the same role every few days when it’s a repost and not a new role. Ux can be simple just give it the appropriate label that would be helpful.

Responding to recruiters new feature is terrible

In the past when I was contacted by a recruiter in my message inbox, I could respond directly to the recruiter. Now, LinkedIn forces you to respond whether or not you are interested in the job before you have a chance to respond. To me this is a 100% unnecessary feature and is an unprofessional way to contact a recruiter to express interest. The right way to treat a recruiter is to write that person directly and let them know your intentions, perhaps including some background for your decision. This can help keep communication channels open in the future and is a networking opportunity. This new feature is a result of someone “overthinking” the situation. This goes back to the old saying, “If its not broke, don't fix it”

Terrible Update for New Jobseekers!!

Why is the current company name for occupation now forced in the headline with the job title!?!? What about those of us that are currently seeking other jobs while still working at the current position??? This is a terrible thing, we should have the option to not have the company name on our headlines if we don’t want it! So disappointed. I was getting so many job opportunity inbox messages from recruiters with my customized headline before this terrible update, I was wondering why I hadn’t seen any inbox messages recently and now I know why, since you removed my customized headline and added the company I currently work for I don’t standout to recruiters anymore and I’m not getting any leads, my headline looks just like everybody else’s headline therefore recruiters don’t even notice me anymore because my headline doesn’t standout like it use to. Change it back please!

iPhone X

Number one, if your application in the Apple IDs door would support a dialog box when selecting apps support I would be writing this in that dialog box and not under reviews. My review is based on the fact that Face ID is not used by this app. this app‘s responses leave your app signed in. I do not wish to do that, the information in LinkedIn is too private for me to take this app suggestion. The technology for Face ID has been incorporated to I would say 70 percent of the applications at this point, so it tells me that updating your app to use this functionality cannot be that difficult. I’ll be waiting for the Face ID recognition in your app soon. I would use your out more by not having to manually put in my password, holding the phone to your face makes my motivation to use your application what greater than having to use my large fingers To type in my password. Thank you, John

Professional Networking Tool

this app is my preferred way to interact with business professionals. I do, however, wish that the site would allow a longer time to deactivate an account or allow one to restore their account within a year. I deactivated my account for a “spiritual hiatus” and attempted to set my account back up and was unable to retrieve it. I built a great network before and now it seems like I am not getting as many recommendations for people that I knew from college and other businesses. 😏 I’m sure my post sounds like a combination of great things and not so great things, but I do really appreciate the fact that the tool is much more professional than most social media outlets.
