How to export your contacts from Linkedin

Last updated by Rich Orr on February 28, 2017 09:23

Exporting Connections from LinkedIn

You can export a CSV file of your connections from the Contact Settings page on the LinkedIn desktop site.

Note: Only the contact's full name, email address, current employer, and position are exported.

For English users in the US:

Move your cursor over Connections (or My Network) in the top navigation bar and select Keep in Touch (or Connections) from the dropdown.
Click the Settings icon near the top right.
Under Advanced Settings on the right, click Export LinkedIn Connections. Click Continue.
You may be prompted to enter the security verification text.
Select the file type to export to, and click Export.
Save the file somewhere you can find it easily, like your computer's desktop.
Open the file, and print (optional).

For international users:

Visit the URL: https://www.linkedin.com/connected/manage_sources.
Under Advanced Settings on the right, click Export LinkedIn Connections. Click Continue.
You may be prompted to enter the security verification text.
Select the file type to export to, and click Export.
Save the file somewhere you can find it easily, like your computer's desktop.
Open the file, and print (optional).

If you're using Internet Explorer and you see a yellow pop-up blocker across the top or bottom of the page:

Click the yellow bar.
Select Save As.
Save the file somewhere you can find it easily.

Notes:

The CSV and vCard formats don't support all characters. As a result, languages with extended character sets, such as Chinese, Japanese, or Hebrew are not supported.
You can't currently export a list of your contacts that are not 1st-degree connections.
If you're exporting your connections because you have a duplicate account:


Remember to close your extra account.


To import your connections list to another LinkedIn account, make sure you've saved the file in a location you can find, and then follow the instructions for uploading contacts using a CSV file.


You can also download a list of your connections by requesting a download of your LinkedIn account data.
