Smarter Sorting Logic
We now implement a more user-friendly sorting logic. The first click on a column sorts the data ascending (A -> Z), while subsequent clicks reverse the order (Z -> A).
Additionally, some sorting now apply to synced profiles only, which avoids empty cells from being listed.
Tooltip for Connections Count Difference
You may have noticed the slight difference between the number of connections on LinkedIn and Poked. We want to be transparent with you about this difference, so we have implemented a tooltip. When you hover over the total connection count displayed in your profile, you will see an explanation for the connection count disparity between both platforms. Spoiler: the LinkedIn count is not quite right!
