Smart Account Limits

Since January 2021 ( release note), you can launch workflows without thinking about the limitations since we automatically and natively apply limits depending on your account.

Head over the Integrations Tab and click on LinkedIn👇Click on edit limits 👇

We automatically detect the type of account you're using: Classic or Sales Navigator.

If you are using a Sales Navigator account and want to visit people profiles, you will be limited to 500 visits a day ( for the limit above).

Captain Data will automatically apply the limits and visit 250 profiles every hours to reach the 500 visits limit.

If you already reached the limit for the current day, it will continue again the day after until you have visited all the profiles from your search.

💡 As written in red, we highly recommend to not change the values except if you now exactly what you are doing.

Accounts Usage

Since July 2021 you can even check accounts usage over last day, the current day and the next 7 days!
