Symphony is an all-in-one dashboard to publish, schedule, and manage your content on Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin.

Symphony Adds LinkedIn Integration

We just released another update to our social media dashboard – LinkedIn integration! Now you can monitor, manage, and publish to your news feed and groups from one place. Here is a quick overview of the new features.

Connecting your LinkedIn Profile and Groups

The first step is to add the profiles and groups you want to manage through Symphony. Do that from the home page by clicking “Add Profiles & Blogs”.

Posting Status Updates, Links, and Pictures

We wanted to make reading and interacting with multiple groups as streamlined as possible to save you time and effort trying to keep up. You can create a “new post” and Crosspost immediately to each place in LinkedIn you would like.

Read and Interact from One Place

The Symphony Reader allows you to view and interact with all of your connections and group members from one single page. From the Reader you can “Like” and “Comment” on news feed and group posts.

Setting up your Publishing Schedule

Don’t bombard your connections with a flurry of back-to-back posts. Add LinkedIn posts to your queue and have your messages go out throughout the day. Every time you Crosspost, you have the option to “Post Now” or “Queue.” Clicking on the Queue button adds posts to your calendar. To add and change the times on your publishing calendar, go to the Auto Post menu. Once there, select the LinkedIn group you manage and add more scheduling times and days.

Automate Publishing your Blog Posts

There’s no longer a need to manually share your blog to all of your LinkedIn groups. Set up the automated blog publishing option in Symphony and as soon as you publish your blog posts, it will be shared on LinkedIn. Go to the Auto Post menu and then click on “Blog Syndication” to get started. Select the group/s you want your blog to automatically publish to. You can select to auto-publish to your profile and the groups you’re an admin of.

  1. Great product, guys….. I’m loving it and just signed up for a year. I have one product suggestion, concerning the “New Post” button. Currently, when someone clicks on “New Post:, they have the option to import photo, search photo and use one of their blog links. How about adding a fourth option, to import a link from anywhere else? Importing the link would load the picture that comes with that link’s post…

    • Thank you, Bo. That fourth option is already there. Try copying and pasting any link, and it’ll show you a preview of that link (title, image, summary), then check the “post as picture” box. Pulling an image from a link will work for the vast majority of Websites, but there are cases where it doesn’t, especially if the page has an invalid or complicated HTML structure that’s hard to parse.

      Bonus feature: try dragging an image from another site (e.g. drag an image from Pinterest) and drop it on Symphony.

    Hi! Your tool looks very interesting. In my company we are looking for a specific tool to manage LinkedIn profiles with this mandatoy features:
    1 Scheduling to multiple groups at the same time
    2. URL/shortened URL don’t show up in the title
    3. The process doesn’t trigger a non-desired move to the group’s promotion tab
    4. Thumbnail image retrieved automatically when published on Linkedin (nice-to-have only)

    If your tool doesn’t provide these features now, could you please indicate whether they will be part of a next, short-term release?

    Thanks!

    • Ivan, we do provide all of that. But, keep in mind that moving posts to the promotions section is a LinkedIn option and it depends on the content of the post, regardless of if you post it manually or using any tool.
