We know that building lists of contacts is annoying and time-consuming. To free you from repetitive copy-paste and manual tasks, we've built a Chrome extension that allows you to add new contacts (people & companies) from LinkedIn to your folk in three easy steps.

1. Download our extension

To download our extension, you can simply go to the Chrome Web Store or on our Website. Download the extension and pin it on your Chrome extension bar.

2. Go on a LinkedIn profile

Open a LinkedIn profile you'd like to add to your folk and just click on the extension (or click Add to folk) – it will instantly retrieve the relevant data for this profile, such as:

  • For people: First name, Last name, Profile avatar, Company name, Company avatar, LinkedIn URL, Contact email (if any), Contact phone (if any), Job title, Note, Address

  • For companies: Name, Logo, URLs

When adding a new profile to your folk, you'll be able to choose your preferred workspace and group.

You can also edit information directly from the extension:

  • Edit and fill in existing fields

  • Add comments, or consult existing ones

  • Add reminders, or consult existing ones

  • Consult interactions

  • Log an interaction

3. Add a whole list of people to folk, in one click

Search for your keyword – for example 'saas investor' – in LinkedIn's search bar and save the whole list of people in your folk, just by clicking on the extension.

4. Use folkX templates on LinkedIn

Once you've installed folkX extension on your browser, you'll be able to access your folk message templates directly in LinkedIn, without switching context.

How to leverage my folkX templates:

  • Just go to your LinkedIn inbox in one of your conversation, and click the folk icon to see your list of templates and use them in your LinkedIn conversations.

  • You can either use an existing template or create a new one.

    • By creating a new template, it will appear in your folk workspace as well

  • Use folk variables to customize your conversations in LinkedIn

    • If the contact you're reaching out to, already exist in your folk workspace, we'll auto update the variables with their info

    • If the contact doesn't exist in your folk workspace, you'll only be able to use First name & Last name as variables
