How many leads can I import in a search?

You can import as many profiles as you want into your interface.

However, LinkedIn limits the display of search results to 1000 (2500 for Sales Navigator).

It is therefore not possible to import more than 1000 leads per Linkedin search. (2500 for Sales Navigator).

If your search has more than 1000 results, try splitting it into several smaller searches

(by varying the regions for example) to import all the leads.

Here’s an article that explains how to get around this limit. 😊

Do I need to keep the Linkedin tab open for my actions to send?

You must have a LinkedIn tab.
