My last post was on the infamous IDK issue… which is a hot and ugly issue. Not a super-big deal, but something that LinkedIn users complain about. A common question is … how do you know when you get an IDK on LinkedIn?
I didn’t know, because I had never been IDK’d. I just checked all my invitations and found that I’ve only invited 21 people to LinkedIn, which is a very small percentage of my overall connections. Of the 21, one invitation has expired, another is still sitting there (obviously two people who don’t use LinkedIn… as one was sent 10/2007 and another sent 4/2007), and the rest have all been accepted.
To get to the status of your invite just click on the connections tab, and then one of the submenu options is invitations:
Cor points out a an easier way to see if your invitation earned you an IDK… it’s on the main list of all your invitations. Just click on Contacts, Invitations (like the image above) and you’ll see a list of all your invitations. If you see the “Doesn’t Know,” you’ll know you didn’t do a good enough job inviting this person.
It’s that easy!
