Search your LinkedInbox with ease

July 11, 2008

How many times have you thought to yourself? Wouldn't it be nice if I could search through my Inbox on LinkedIn. We are really glad to announce this much requested feature this week, close on the heels of the LinkedIn Group Search functionality announced by my colleague, Ben, a few days ago.

1. Where can I find LinkedIn Search?

Start looking along the horizontal navigation header on the homepage (see above screenshot)

You may notice this one-stop search drop-down menu also includes the ability to search within LinkedIn Groups, in addition to searching your Inbox.

2. Let's Search!

How about looking for any Inbox communication thread with the "developer" keyword in my Inbox. Remember this search will also produce results from your Inbox's Archives.

The greyed-out results are pulled from your Archive. So, you don't lose any communication you've received.
