Hootsuite is enhancing its integration with LinkedIn to allow users to include posts to LinkedIn Profiles, Groups and even allow the set-up of job searches by keyword.

This long-awaited integration of being able to post directly to a LinkedIn Group from Hootsuite is making progress, yet one feature is only available for the enterprise platform.

That being said — here are some features that you can expect to see:

LinkedIn Company Pages- This feature is currently only available on the enterprise platform. It will provide users the ability to post status updates to the new LinkdIn company pages from HootSuite, view company updates and view company details through pop up profiles on the dashboard

LinkedIn Groups- At last — the ability to monitor, schedule and post discussions in LinkedIn groups, as well as save comments as a stream to follow conversations and share discussions with others by email.

Job Search- Provides the ability to create a list of jobs based on search results and preview job listings.

Hi Allison,

Thanks for sharing this article! To clarify – groups, job search, and profiles are available for basic and pro users immediately.

Access to the LinkedIn Company Page status update feature is currently only available to select Enterprise users who apply for the beta as it requires different dependencies.

Thanks for the clarification Andy, I must have misread the press release. It is all fixed, and by the way — I am very happy about these new features.
