LinkedIn Saved Searches Reappear on Desktop

After its full website redesign, LinkedIn saved searches migrated to the premium Sales Navigator platform, but the network reintegrated this popular feature…

In late January, a refreshed LinkedIn desktop redesign debuted. However, not all features remained available through the update. Some next-level functions transitioned solely to the premium version. These included group searches and saved searches. Now, at least one is back. LinkedIn saved searches are again available to all network users.

LinkedIn Saved Searches Add Back to Desktop Interface

Lindsey McMillion Stemann of McMillion Consulting, wrote a blog post detailing the reintroduction of LinkedIn saved searches. To access saved searches, users only need to follow a few simple steps:

  1. Log onto LinkedIn desktop.
  2. Conduct a search. 
  3. Click on the “People” tab at the top.
  4. Scroll down to find “Saved searches” on the right column.
  5. Click on “Create search alert.”

Previously, users could rename saved searches but that option isn’t available in the reintroduction. LinkedIn also added a few more search qualifiers during its site refresh. “In this redesign, you now have one single search box at the top of every LinkedIn page to find People, Jobs, Companies, Groups and Schools. Searching for Posts will also be coming soon,” the company explained.

Earlier this month, the network likewise announced new content user controls. These include disabling and enabling user article comments, as well as reporting inappropriate comments.
