Add a simple LinkedIn button to Your QuickBase Sales/CRM Application

You can enhance your QuickBase Lead Tracking, Sales and CRM applications by adding a LinkedIn button that does intelligent lookups into LinkedIn. Frequently we call people and companies and we wished we knew more about who we are calling. Try adding a simple button to your application QuickBase. QuickBase will pass the company and contact’s name to LinkedIn for a quick lookup.

addlinkedinbutton

linkedinresult


All you need to do is add the following to a new Formula URL field:

“http://www.linkedin.com/search?search=&sik=1178917462007&keywords=”&URLEncode([Name]&”+”&[Company])


If you only have “First Name” and “Last Name”, modify the link so it reflects your usage. Like this:

“http://www.linkedin.com/search?search=&sik=1178917462007&keywords=”&URLEncode([First Name]&”+”&[Last Name]&”+”&[Company])


Right-click and add the link to your button

    Got me thinking about whether we can replicate this for Twitter. It’s not perfect, but it works!
