LinkedIn pre-fill no longer working for Google Certifications?

Hi all,

 

When you click Add to Profile button, the basic certification information should be pre-filled for you including "Name" and "Authority". 

 

I tried adding my Adwords Certification to LinkedIn, but the window is completely empty (not pre-filled).

The instructions are here for reference:

Has this feature stopped working? Any ideas?

 

Thanks,

Gary

Hi @Gary B,

 

Moshe!... how could you not know this. Smiley Happy

 

When I added mine, I just used Google as the certificate authority and then set the dates and put my Google Partners profile link for the certificate. If you go to Google Partners, click on MY Profile and then look down the page towards the bottom, you will see the view profile link. Use that for them all. 

 

Kind Regards,

 

James

Thanks James - I have also done this manually for now.

 

It seems to me LinkedIn has recently changed something on their end and Google needs to update the button functionality to make the pre-fill work again.
