Distinguish between title, body text and link in LinkedIn group discussions

Currently you can only upload a message to the title or the header of a discussion in LinkedIn groups, which is limited to 200 characters.
It should be possible to add discussions in LinkedIn groups with specifically a title, body text and even link separated in the 'create new message' field.!

    Hello!

    We’ve recently made some updates to how LinkedIn Groups are posted to from HootSuite.

    Currently, the maximum character count allowed to LinkedIn from HootSuite is 685 characters. When posting to a LinkedIn Group from HootSuite, the first 200 characters will be taken and used in the title field, with the remaining characters used in the body field of the post.

    To split the title and body content of the post prior to the 200 character title limit, please use the following characters: ‘||’ (two vertical bars in a row).

    Thank you,
    Travis | Customer Support – Technical Lead | @HootSuite_Help
