The Android Share Menu is a system menu that is accessible in many of your Android apps, including Chrome, LinkedIn, Twitter, Mail, Calendar, and others.

You're probably familiar with using the Share Menu to forward links to email or text messages, or to post interesting articles on social networks.

We added support for Nimble on the Share Menu to let you use Nimble's social search to build new contact records on the fly and to also look up existing records.

Think of it as a mobile version of our Nimble Prospector App that you use in your desktop web browser.

Using Android Share on LinkedIn Mobile

As you can see in this example, the Share Menu is available on a LinkedIn profile record from the mobile app. By selecting the dots and then "Share profile via...", you can launch the Nimble app to build a Live Profile or load an existing Nimble profile.

How to Use the Share Menu in the Address Book

The Share Menu is also accessible in the native Addressbook on Android, allowing you to quickly add business contacts from your phone to Nimble.

  1. Open a Contacts on your mobile phone

  2. Select the contact you would like to add to Nimble

  3. Select "Share" when on their record then "Share File"

  4. Select Nimble, and we'll build a Live Profile or pull up a matching Nimble record

These are just two ways you can use the Share Via feature. Test it out yourself to see the full benefits.
