There is a way. Export all your connections in CSV and import them to a real CRM: folk.

💽 Exporting all my LinkedIn Connections

To export all your LinkedIn connections at any time, simply follow these steps:

  • Go to the LinkedIn home page and click on your profile on the top right hand corner
  • Click on the Settings & Privacy section in the drop-down menu
  • Go to the DATA PRIVACY and click on “Get a copy of your data”
  • Select “Connections” and request an archive
  • Enter your password and Click Done
