Feb 17, 2016, 11:49 am

LinkedIn will be removing the Save Contacts feature from the users’ LinkedIn Connections page. The largest professional sites in the world, in an email to its users, said,

We’re always looking for ways to make your professional life better. This sometimes means shutting down certain features that aren’t heavily used to invest in others that offer value for our members.

The feature will be disabled on February 25, but before that LinkedIn will move the saved contacts to a new tag called “Saved_Contacts” – so need to worry about losing anything you’ve already stored.

The professional social networking site has around 400 million active users of which more than 40 million are students and recent college graduates. LinkedIn recently revamped its website with added features like university finder, improved messaging service and overall look and feel of the website.

Here is the complete guide to access your saved contacts in desktop website:

  • On top of your LinkedIn navigation bar go to “My Network” and select “Connections” option. Here you can scroll down to your Contacts list and click on the “Filter by” dropdown on the left.
  • Here you can select the “Tag” option where you will find a list of tags if you created previously.
