I hate it when software or online tools change. Even minor tweaks mean I have to learn something new. And sometimes it seems like they’ve made changes just for the sake of making changes. Can you say Microsoft Office?
However, I must admit I like the changes made to the inbox for your LinkedIn account. It looks nicer and has your messages separate from your invitations. I find this helpful.
Another great feature is the ability to flag messages. Say someone sends you a request that needs action. You can flag it so in the future you have a reminder that this message requires action on your part. Even better, you can also filter you inbox to only show flagged messages. This is very speedy.
If you’ve only noticed the changes to your LinkedIn inbox but haven’t explored what you can do with it, you really need to watch this short video. It’s less than a minute but will get you up to speed so you can use these changes to their full potential.
