Important: Our LinkedIn integration is changing

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

We were recently advised by LinkedIn that they are making changes to their infrastructure. Unfortunately, this means that after June 30, 2019, third-party apps like Evernote and Scannable will no longer have any access to LinkedIn data.

What does this mean?

Any LinkedIn profile information you’ve already added to a note will remain. But you won’t be able to see a LinkedIn user’s details, or connect with them, when you scan a new business card in Evernote. You’ll also lose the ability to add content from your own LinkedIn profile to your Evernote account, or see LinkedIn information using our Context feature.  

What will happen?

Within the next couple of weeks, we’ll be rolling out updates for iOS and Android that will remove the LinkedIn connection. You don’t need to take any specific action other than keeping your app up to date. Mac and Windows updates should be available by mid-July.

If you haven’t updated your mobile app by June 30 (or if you’re using a desktop app) you’ll still see the option to connect to LinkedIn when you scan a business card, but nothing will happen.

Despite these changes, we want to be clear about one thing: business card scanning is not going away. You’ll still be able to:

  • Take a picture of a business card and save it in Evernote
  • Add the person to contacts on your mobile device
  • Email your own info to the person
  • Find the business card later using Evernote’s text recognition feature

The LinkedIn integration was an awesome feature and we’re sorry to see it go. But we’re still committed to helping you work smarter and keep your life organized.

If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out to me directly!
