At Ignite 2018 last year, Microsoft announced two new integrations between LinkedIn and Office 365. These two integrations are now available to more users.

First, you can hover over a contact’s name in Outlook on the web and OneDrive and SharePoint in Office 365 to get information from their LinkedIn Profile. This feature is now generally available to all Office 365 users.

Second, you can send emails and share documents with your LinkedIn connections right from Outlook on the web, OneDrive, SharePoint, Word, PowerPoint, and Excel Online by just typing a name in the “To” or “CC” field when typing a new message or sharing a document. This feature is now rolling out to Office 365 Targeted Release customers.

IT Admins can disable these features if needed. Also, these features are not available as part of Microsoft Cloud for US Government, Microsoft Cloud Germany, or Azure and Office 365 operated by 21Vianet in China.
