Grab function of LinkedIn toolbar helps to save time

The online business network LinkedIn is the largest online business network at the moment.

Most people now already heard of this website, but what not so many people know is that there are also free tools.

One of them is a toolbar for Outlook. There is also a toolbar for Internet Explorer and Firefox.

The toolbar of Outlook has at least one very handy feature: the “grab” function.

What does it do?

It avoids copying and pasting people’s e-mail signatures to a contact card.

All you need to do now, is highlight the e-mail signature and then push the “grab” button.

A new contact card is then automatically created with the contact details in the right fields.

I have to give a small warning though: always check if all the contact details are copied and if they are indeed in the right fields. There are so many different ways of creating an e-mail signature that the alogrithm doesn’t recognize all the fields all the time. But it still is a time saver !

Have an efficient networking day !

  1. This was terrific — thanks for the info. I had no idea so many shortening services existed out there and plan to check out some of them.
