Start instance and Campaigns runner on a remote machine
It is now possible to start instance and campaigns on a remote or local machine from a browser or Launcher window.
If you open Linked Helper account in the Launcher, then there can be 4 options available:
- Open - open LinkedIn account locally, do not start campaigns.
- Open and run campaigns - after instance is opened, Linked Helper will start campaign runner and all the campaigns that were previously active.
- Open on remote machine - open LinkedIn account without starting campaigns. Account will be opened not on this PC but on the one where this LinkedIn account was previously active. For example, you run LinkedIn account on your work PC during the week. On weekends, when you open Launcher from home PC, you can start LinkedIn account on your work PC provided that it is still turned on.
- Open on remote machine and run campaigns - the same as above but with campaign runner and all the previously active campaigns will be started as well.
Collecting followers of your LinkedIn page
As per LinkedIn rules, when you connect with someone, you automatically start follow each other. That is, most of your followers are your 1st-degree connections. It may be important to know who among your 2nd and 3rd-degree connections follows your page. For example, you may want to invite them to your network as those profiles are more likely to accept your invitation.
Now Linked Helper allows you to collect all the profiles from the Followers web page:
You can see followers of your LinkedIn account via this URL: https://www.linkedin.com/mynetwork/network-manager/people-follow/followers/.
Action working hours
A new feature implemented in the Action working hours plug-in allows you to set a custom schedule that affects only certain actions. This could be useful if you need to limit certain activity. For example, Linked Helper should send invitations around the clock since the invitee does not see the time the invite was sent. However, all the follow-up messages must go out only during business hours from 9 AM till 6 PM as it looks suspicious to receive a message from someone in the middle of the night.
Leave response unread
When LinkedIn user opens a chat with an unread message, the status of the message is changed to 'Read' because LinkedIn web page sends a 'Mark this message as read' request to LinkedIn server. The same happens when Linked Helper checks for replies or sends messages, as the tool imitates human activity. However, Linked Helper saves all the messages it scrapes in its database and you can view them if you install Inbox plug-in.
Now it is possible to leave the status of unread messages unchanged as Linked Helper can block such requests from a LinkedIn web page to LinkedIn servers. You can do that in the Actions section of the Settings menu in Linked Helper instance:
Scrape messaging history
Previously, Linked Helper scraped messaging history only in case the profile was processed in a messaging action and received a message via the tool. Now it is possible to get messages from all the profiles you even interacted with, either manually or automatically via Linked Helper / any other automation tool.
Automatic sent invites canceller
To be on save side and don't fall under LinkedIn shadow ban for inviting, it's important to keep the number of pending invitations below 1500 and constantly delete profiles who haven't accepted your invitation in 2 - 3 weeks.
With Linked Helper, it's It is now possible to automatically cancel unaccepted invitations that have been pending for more than X days. All you need is to:
- Install Automatic sent invites canceller for Filter contacts out of my network (keep 1st level only) plug-in
- Enable this option in the 'Process pending invites' tab of Filter contacts out of my network (keep 1st level only) Action in any of your active campaign
Ignore replies option
Previously, a profile was always moved to replied list and out of the workflow no matter whether the reply is relevant or not. It was impossible to return it back for messaging without disabling reply detection in the messaging actions and replace Check for replies actions with Delay between actions.
In some cases, 'Thanks for inviting' or similar messages needed be ignored so person could receive a follow-up message anyway.
The new feature allows you to select those in Replied list who should receive a follow-up and retry them or move to the next messaging action without disabling reply detection and replacing Check for replies.
Linked Helper Inbox
If you send a sequence of messages to a group of people and Linked Helper checks whether they replied then you may find yourself in a difficult situation when all the replies are marked as read in your LinkedIn message inbox. That happens because in order to scrape the messaging history Linked Helper needs to open a chat like a real human being thus all the received messages there are marked as read by LinkedIn.
The Linked Helper Inbox can help you to track replies despite the fact they were “read” by Linked Helper. Profiles who answered anything important can be tagged and added to another campaign, for example for sending a different follow-up message.

Find Profile Emails
Find Profile Emails action can use LH email finder or Snov.io integration in order to search for emails of your 2nd/3rd connections. LH Email finder is our service that provides you with LinkedIn leads emails. How does it work? When you connect to a profile, you can scrape its email address and other data like URL, first / last names, etc. For many other our clients your 1st-degree connection is only 2nd or 3rd-degree connection to whom they would like to send an invite. With LH Email Finder it's now possible for anyone to share the data about his 1st-degree connections to get the same information about his 2nd / 3rd-degree connections from other our customers. In other words, you can contribute the data you collected for the ability to get emails of your 2nd / 3rd-degree connections in return to be able to invite them by their email addresses in LinkedIn.
The main advantage of this action in combination with LH email finder is that it doesn't necessarily need to visit a profile to find its email address. It will start visiting the profile only if there is not enough data for email search in the LH Email Finder database.

LinkedIn 100 invites limit hack
UPDATE: since Sept 1, 2023 this feature doesn't work on any LinkedIn account.
Linked Helper can overcome LinkedIn's weekly invitation limit. Using it, you can invite more than 100 profiles a week!
We found LinkedIn undocumented functionality that allows the tool to send the invite even if the limit is reached. For LinkedIn it looks like a glitch when the invitation has failed but then suddenly went through.
