Can LinkedIn "Create Share Update" mention a user or company?

In LinkedIn, when you create a post, you can use “@” mentioning for either users or companies.

Is this supported by Zapier’s "Create Share Update" LinkedIn action?

In LinkedIn, the potential target users or companies reveal themselves in a dropdown type input form, and of course there are many thousands of permutations…

If Zapier gave LinkedIn, say…

This post would mention @Bill Gates, the founder of @Microsoft, that big company

… how would it handle it?

I’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Hi @robertandrews ,

Thanks for reaching out! 

When pushing a mention via Zapier through LinkedIn, it doesn’t appear that the actual mention is translated, only the plain text. So in your example, @BillGates (plain text) would come across vs @BillGates (mention).

Hoping the above may be possible one day but please let us know if you have any additional questions!

Thanks for the answer. This would be a great upgrade, though it sounds complex.
