This allows us to accumulate more data over time as more data syncs are made so that you can report on more historical LinkedIn Company Pages data in your Databox reports. Learn more here

Why is my LinkedIn Company Pages Data Source disconnected?

There are 2 common reasons why your LinkedIn Company Pages Data Source may disconnect: 
1. The 60-day connection token has expired
2. The same LinkedIn Company Pages Account is connected more than once in Databox

IN THIS SECTION

The 60-day connection token has expired

LinkedIn connections are established using tokens. LinkedIn sets its tokens to expire after 60 days. This means that every 60 days, your LinkedIn Data Source will be disconnected. 

In order to reconnect your LinkedIn Data Source, navigate to Data Sources and click the Reconnect button next to your LinkedIn Data Source. 

The same LinkedIn Account is connected more than once in Databox

Each LinkedIn Company Page can only be connected in 1 Databox Account. If a LinkedIn Company Pages is connected in a 2nd Databox Account, the 1st LinkedIn Data Source will disconnect.
