Once you are on a LinkedIn profile page, the extension will allow you to create a candidate on Boond from information that are visible on this LinkedIn profile page:
If updates were made on a LinkedIn profile (email, phone number etc.), Boond will be able to detect it and will suggest an update.
You have several options:

- Choose whether you want to stick with the information you have on Boond or add the updates from LinkedIn
- Confirm the update
BoondManager thought of everything. ;)
If the candidate is already created on Boond and you try to import their profile from LinkedIn, a message will pop up saying that it already exists and that their information is already updated!
