LinkedIn New Events Feature

LinkedIn has rolled out another new feature. You can now post an event from your desktop or on the app on your mobile device. I just created my first ever event on LinkedIn and am so excited about this, so I had to share.

Here is how to access it from your mobile device from the app:

  1. Tap on your profile picture at the top left
  2. Tap on the + sign to the right of the word Events
  3. Fill out the info

To use it on the desktop:

  1. Click on the blue and white IN button at the top left so you have 3 columns
  2. Tap on the + sign to the right of the word Events in the far left column
  3. Fill out the info

The event can be set to public or private with the following:

  1. Time zone
  2. Image
  3. Name of Event
  4. Location
  5. Venue Details
  6. Date and Time of start and end
  7. Event description
  8. External URL
