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

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).

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 platforms at once, you will need to de-link the LinkedIn post to create a unique post to enable page mentions.

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, and will be added to Bulk Create in a future update.
