LinkedIn Page mentions are now live in Sked. You can tag pages inside your caption that will be clickable in your LinkedIn posts.

To tag a page, simply start with @, then type the name of the page you wish to mention in the caption of your posts. For best results, we recommend entering in the full name as it appears on LinkedIn; Entering a partial name is likely to return the incorrect page. You’ll get a preview of the page’s display picture on the suggestion tool tip to assist you in selecting the correct page.

If you are struggling to locate the correct page handle, enter the name as per the pages URL in your browser, including any hyphens when viewing the page on LinkedIn.

Once you’ve entered and selected the page you wish to tag, you will see the short code that Sked uses in the post, similar to @[urn:li:organization:10679214](Sked Social).

Tip: You can add pages you frequently use to templates to quickly insert the correct handles using the templates drop down.

This will publish as the Page Name as indicated in the preview box on the right.

Posting to multiple platforms at once

When posting to multiple social platforms, use the customise post toggle to create a unique caption, and add the page mention inside the LinkedIn caption box.

Notes regarding Page Mentions

  • Only Pages can be mentioned. LinkedIn doesn’t return a short code for personal accounts.

  • Mentions can be used by both Company and Individual accounts.

  • The page short code is present as text inside the caption during preview, but will not publish on the live post.

  • Removing any part of the short code will cause the mention to fail, as indicated in the preview window by a loss of blue link text.

  • Page mentions are presently only available when using the create single post tool.
