I came across a great trick to solve a problem I had today.
I have thousands of LinkedIn connections and periodically my inbox gets over-full. However, there doesn’t seem to be an easy way to clear your inbox with LinkedIn.
So I turn to Google!
In this great post How to Delete Multiple LinkedIn Messages [LinkedIn Hack], Peter Abilla explains a great trick using Google Chrome’s Inspect tool to quickly clear your inbox!
I tried it and it worked great.
Here are the steps…
1. Go to your LinkedIn inbox (you must use Google Chrome for this hack)
2. Right-click (or double-tap if you are on a Mac) and select INSPECT
3. Click on the CONSOLE tab in Chrome Inspect
4. Copy and paste the following code into the console’s command line and press return
You may have to do this several times to totally clear your inbox due to the fact that you might have more than one page of messages.
I hope you found this post valuable in taking the pain out of clearing your LinkedIn inbox!
