Look Up Contacts with Outlook Online

booleanstringsBoolean 1 Comment

It’s been a while since Microsoft acquired LinkedIn. We have been anticipating some sort of integration between MS Office and LinkedIn, but nothing major has happened. (The “Resume Assistant” in Microsoft Word is a joke! All it does is make the users to add details to their profiles) However, we can now look up contacts (email addresses) in Outlook Online. Here is how.

  1. Connect Outlook Online with LinkedIn: log into your Office account online if you have a subscription – if not, create a new account at https://outlook.live.com (it’s free). Your email must be registered on LinkedIn.
  2. Upload the list of email addresses, that you would like to cross-reference, into your contacts.
  3. In https://outlook.live.com/people, select a contact and the “LinkedIn” tab to see the profile!
