This isn't really an integration. It is a view only I-frame that allows users to see LinkedIn content within a window. A true integration shares content between the platforms, not simply embeds a subset of functionality within another platform. In fact, when you flag a Lead or Account in Sales Navigator, you are doing so within LinkedIn. No data is shared with the host service. Thus, you are failing to store information in your CRM, which should be your system of record.
