Before You Start

Before you can automate your tasks on LinkedIn, there are several steps you need to take first:

  • Install the Apollo Chrome extension: The Chrome extension is required to automate tasks. If you haven't set up the Apollo Chrome extension yet and aren't sure where to begin, review Apollo Chrome Extension Overview for an introduction to all things extension!
  • Create LinkedIn tasks: If you haven't created any Linked tasks for your Apollo sequences yet and need a helping hand, review Add and Complete LinkedIn Tasks in a Sequence. Refer to Sequences Overview for an introduction to Apollo sequences and Create a Sequence to add other types of steps to your sequence.
  • Enroll contacts in a sequence: If you create a sequence, you also need to enroll a list of contacts into it before you can leverage LinkedIn task automation. For more information about how to add contacts to a sequence, please refer to Add Contacts to a Sequence.

Now that you have created new tasks or sequences, you can start to automate your LinkedIn tasks.
