How Many Connections Can You Upload To Linkedin At A Time?

This information is up-to-date as of 08-28-2017.

You can only upload 499 contacts at a time using the manual importer feature. Otherwise the upload will usually fail, although I have actually been able to upload over 1,000 before.. no idea why, but it fails over 500 – 95% of the time.

  • The first 3 columns of the column header are required fields and should be labeled in the following order:
    1. “First Name” should be typed at the top of the first column.
    2. “Last Name” should be typed at the top of the second column.
    3. “Email Address” should be typed at the top of the third column.
    4. All other fields are optional.

Importing & Exporting From Google Contacts Is Better

It’s easy and you can do them all at once if you go to Google Contacts, import your list and then go back to Linkedin and click ‘Sync with Google Contacts’. I have heard the limit is 10,000 or 30,000.. but I have done 12,000 without issue all at once before.
