    Hi tbrady12,

    To confirm, you would like have your form embedded in a post on LinkedIn?

    Unfortunately it is not possible to Embed the form into a LinkedIn article because LinkedIn does not allow that.

    The only option would be to share the link in the article and persons can click on the link and be directed to the form to fill it out.

    I hope this helps! Please inform us if you need additional assistance.

    Hi tbrady12,

    Just like what my colleague said, you can share your form directly by copy and pasting the direct link of the form to the website linkedin. But this will only show a redirect to the link.

    Also, I've search the widget database and I saw this:

    http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/social_share. The Social Share widget sports all the popular social network sites, the form will be shared when the buttons are clicked. This will easily let you share the forms you have.

    Let us know if this helps you.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    I was trying to get my form to work on Linkedin article I posted and it didn't work? Only showed the link instead of the form?

    Linkedin will not allow you to embed a form of any kind into their pages. This is not related to us, this is how they have decided to run their website and we can not change that.

    How do I share the link so that they will go to the form and fill it out.

    What is the jotform about? If you are looking to get contacted through this jotform, then add in text that they can contact you by following the next link or some similar text and save the section/page.

    People looking at your profile will then see your link and after clicking on it will be taken to your jotform.

    Tell me more about how that works so I understand you correctly.

    I presume that you are interested in the mentioned widget "Social Share". Now this widget will not allow you to add the jotform to linkedin pages, but will allow anyone visiting your form to share the link to your website or the link of the jotform itself (depending on the setup) on their own social profile such as on Facebook (if they click on the button).

    If you want to learn more about it I would suggest clicking on this link http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/social_share and taking a look at screenshots and description.

    If you have any further questions please let us know.

    Best Regards,
    Ben
