First up, let's open up the Dashboard. To do so, click on the extension:
The Dashboard is Scrab.in's control panel where you'll be able to configure everything you need, but in this case let's focus on Actions:
Actions allows you to adjust both the behaviour of the extension as well as configure the automatic messages that will be sent each time a new connection is invited. We suggest leaving the default settings and modifying only the content of the messages.
Inside Scan/Visit, you can choose to avoid connecting with connected profiles in the first, second or third degree. You can also choose to avoid visiting profiles that do not contain profile photography (this is useful to avoid unimportant profiles).
Note: By default, the option to skip profiles that are out of network is already active, since if you cannot establish a relationship of at least third degree, LinkedIn does not show the profile as visible and therefore cannot collect any useful information.
In the bottom part, you'll find daily visits and scans limits. We strongly recommend to not modify this section as Scrab.in comes pre-configured to be as efficient as possible while making reasonable use of the system. Increasing these limits could lead to the banning of your LinkedIn account or a temporary suspension of it.
IMPORTANT: If your LinkedIn Account has been recently created or you have a low number of connections (less than 200), use Daily Limits while visiting profiles with scrab.in in order to protect your account from being banned. We configured limits to not surpass certain daily visits and avoid being soft banned by LinkedIn. It is all about proportions. IE: Having 100 connections in your profile, we recommend not to visit more than 30 new profiles per day. Increase this number exponentially week over week. Turn off Daily limits when you have more than 600 connections, you have been always active in LinkedIn, or you are confident your account will not be restricted.
Below we'll find the option to perform Endorsement (validate skills automatically) to the profiles that we visit. We recommend turning this option on only when viewing first degree profiles as it is not a very normal behaviour in networks outside of the first degree.
In Group Message Template we'll be able to customise a personalised message to send to all the members of a LinkedIn group that we are a member of.
Invite Actions allows you to send invites to profiles with a personalized message. It is highly recommended to have this option activated whenever you make a new connection.
Did you know? Connection requests with a message are 47% more accepted than connection requests without a message.
If you're using Sales Navigator you can use InMail Message (to send InMail messages, of course).
Message (1st degree only) let's you select the frequency of messages sent. With this configuration we'll be able to prevent a first degree connection from being contacted more than once within the selected period of time. We can also personalize the message with the name, job title and company.
Invitation Follow-Up Message focuses on the automation of incoming invitations as well as a follow-up message once the connection has accepted us.
You can write a personalized message adding name, job title, and company of the profile.
There are many things you can do, like choosing to pause this action if the profile has already answered to our invite and/or set a timing to delay the follow-up message.
Did you know? This action does not consume any of your daily actions quota!
