How To Withdraw An Invitation on LinkedIn

There are different types of invitations you can withdraw on LinkedIn. It could be a connection request or an invitation to join a page or an event. If the recipient still hasn’t responded, you can easily withdraw it. 

Before we get started, it’s important to note that LinkedIn doesn’t have an option to withdraw invitations that you’ve sent out in bulk so you need to be wary of this before sending them out.

What Happens When You Withdraw An Invitation?

First and foremost, if you do decide to withdraw an invite then the recipient won’t be notified. This will stop the person from receiving any further reminders in their emails to accept, though. However, it’s important to note that you can’t resend an invitation to the same recipient for up to three weeks. 

If somebody accepts your invitation to connect before you have time to withdraw an invitation, you still have the chance to remove them from your connections. 

To view and withdraw your sent invitations on your browser: 

  1. Click on My Network at the top of your LinkedIn homepage. 
  2. Click on See All next to Invitations at the top of the page.
  3. Select the Sent tab underneath Manage Invitations. 
  4. Choose either People, Pages, or Events. 
  5. Confirm your decision via the pop-up message. 

To view and withdraw your sent invitations on your smartphone:

  1. Tap My Network. 
  2. Choose the Invitations button. 
  3. Tap the Sent slider at the top of the screen. 
  4. Withdraw an Invitation by tapping Withdraw next to an invitation.  
  5. Confirm this on the pop-up. 

Withdrawing an invitation on LinkedIn won’t bypass the weekly invitation limit, but it will help your profile not get into the dreaded LinkedIn jail. It keeps your connection invitations cleaner and you will have a good understanding of who is connecting or potential why your request has been ignored. If you want fewer ignored requests make sure you put in the time for the user to know you, your business and what you can offer.
