How to share and amplify LinkedIn posts from Microsoft Teams

SocialWeaver brings your organization's LinkedIn posts to Microsoft Teams, allowing you to share, react, and comment with a single click.

Follow these steps to connect your LinkedIn profile to your organization's SocialWeaver account:

Connect your LinkedIn account

1. Click on the invite link you received from your marketing team. The link should look something like this: https://app.socialweaver.com/auth/employee/XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXX/connect?group=marketing

2. Click Continue to proceed to LinkedIn.

💡
SocialWeaver will not have access to or be able to store your LinkedIn credentials. When you authenticate with LinkedIn, you'll see a complete list of all the permissions and account information the SocialWeaver app will obtain.

5. Select your preferred approval mode. There are two available modes of content approval in SocialWeaver:

  • Manual (Recommended): This is the default content approval mode where you manually share, comment, and like all LinkedIn content pushed to Microsoft Teams.  
  • Automatic: Give your organization permission to share and like posts on your behalf. Only posts shared on your organization's LinkedIn page can be automatically re-shared and liked on your behalf.

If you choose the manual approval mode, you'll need to enable at least one option to receive content notifications. To enable Microsoft Teams, click on the Install SocialWeaver for Teams link. You will be redirected to Microsoft to enter your Microsoft Teams account credentials.
