Connecting a new integration can often be stressful. How do you know if your account is set up correctly when you're working with so many different platforms? Sometimes something as simple as a permission level can prevent you from connecting that integration to Oviond. In this article, we will be helping you understand how to get started with LinkedIn on Oviond.

LinkedIn Permissions

  1. Navigate to the page you are looking to connect.

  2. Select the drop-down menu Admin Tools.

  3. Select Manage Admin.

  4. Select + Add Admin.

  5. Search for the member to assign a role to.

Select the role Super Admin to give access to give full access to the page.

Reconnecting LinkedIn To Oviond

Working with APIs means that sometimes your integrations will need to be refreshed for security reasons. There are two error messages to look out for that can indicate that the integration needs to be refreshed: Error: You Have Encountered An Unknown Error or Error: Missing Or Incorrect Authentication Credentials.

If you refresh your dashboard or your reports and you are prompted with the above error message, you will need to refresh your integration. Learn more about how to refresh your integration token.
