Introducing ShortPoint LinkedIn Design Element

LinkedIn ShortPoint Design Element is here as part of the new Social Media Intranet Kit Category in the ShortPoint Page Builder. Using this Design Element, you can embed a LinkedIn page Follow button into your SharePoint pages.

Here is a sample of how the LinkedIn Design Element may look like on your page:

LinkedIn - example

Note: Take a look at the demo page we have set up for LinkedIn Design Element and see it in action by following our demo page.

You can find it by either clicking the Social category at the top:

LinkedIn from Page Builder grid

or by typing "linkedin" in the search bar:

LinkedIn - search

Selecting the LinkedIn Design Element will open its Settings tab.

Customization options

The LinkedIn Follow button only requires a single customizable option, and that is the Company ID

Company ID

LinkedIn suggests finding the company by contacting the LinkedIn company page administrator and asking them to navigate to the admin section of the page. The Company ID can then be extracted from the URL. For example, the LinkedIn company admin section's URL is:, therefore the Company ID is 1337.

It is also possible to extract the company ID manually without contacting LinkedIn admin. Continue to this FAQ by LinkedIn help center: What is a LinkedIn Company ID, and where do I find it?
