    Hi,

    I'm creating a form for CV submission to embed on our site.

    https://form.jotform.me/61858096847473 

    I wanted to have a LinkedIn field, wherein the user will be able to attach his LinkedIn Profile. 

    Please let me know how. 

    Thanks,

    H

    While I am not quite sure what specific field you're looking but it is possible for the user to include their linkedin profile URL using a regular textbox field. You can also set validation on the textbox field to accept only URLs.

    Example:

    You can also use the file upload field if you want your users to attach a file.

    The LinkedIn widget suggested on the other thread is for visual purposes only. Meaning, you can display your company's linkedin profile in your form using the suggested widget.

    If you have further questions, let us know.

    I see. Thanks for the quick response, Elton.

    Cause I've seen other forms of LinkedIn widget integration.

    Wherein, once the user clicks the buttons, they will be asked to authorize the application.

    But nonetheless, I'll give it a try. 

    Thanks,

    H

    Got it, thanks for the clarifications and screenshots.

    While we do not have such feature yet, I have added this as a feature request for future implementations.

    Once this is added to JotForm, we will let you know via this thread.
