LinkedIn Button on SalesForce

If you're doing business and not using LinkedIn you are behind the times (for sure!).  If you're using SalesForce and LinkedIn, syncing the data can be tough.

Here's a quick helper button/link you can add to SalesForce when you send a LinkedIn invitation out.

 

Clicking on this brings up a pre-filled completed task:

 

So let's create a custom button:

1st: Goto Setup -> Customize -> Leads -> Buttons, Links and Actions

2nd : Create a new button with the following:

 

Here's the code for the URL:

/00T/e?followup=1&title=Call&retURL=%2F{!Lead.Id}&tsk2_lkid={!Lead.Id}&tsk3_lkid={!Lead.Id}
&tsk5=Sent+LinkedIn+Invite&tsk6=Sent+LinkedIn+Invite+to+{!Lead.Name}
&tsk2_mlktp=00Q&tsk2={!Lead.Name}&tsk10=Linkedin+(invite)

Save and then goto your Leads -> Page Layout and drop the new button in there.  Enjoy and I hope this helps.
