How to Track Sent Invitations on LinkedIn
As you expand your LinkedIn network, you need to keep track of the Invitations you send to your connections and any incoming Invitations. The last thing you want to do is send repeat LinkedIn Invitations to the same person because you didn’t monitor your Sent Invitations list.
Also, you might want to review your Sent Invitations list to see whether someone has responded; if not, you can send that person a follow-up e-mail either through LinkedIn or via your own e-mail account. To help you, LinkedIn keeps a running list of all the Invitations you sent, with the current status (Accepted, Doesn’t Know, Expired, or Sent) of each Invitation on that page as well.
Here’s how to track your sent Invitations:
Click the Add Connections link from the top-right corner of any LinkedIn page.
You can also roll your mouse over the Contacts link in the top navigation bar, and then select Add Connections from the menu that appears.
This opens the screen for adding connections to your network.
Click the View Sent Invitations link to pull up a list of all your sent Invitations.
You see the Sent Invitations page. The status of each Invitation depends on whether (Accepted) appears next to each name. If so, that Invitation was accepted. If not, the Invitation has merely been sent.
To view an Invitation, click its Subject line.
You see a copy of your Invitation. In this particular case, Resend and Withdraw buttons appear because the recipient hasn’t yet acted on the Invitation.
Resend: Send a reminder to this person.
Withdraw: Delete your Invitation request.
