Sequences in Reply may include setting up LinkedIn automation steps to send connection requests. All such requests can be accepted or rejected, but very often, they remain pending without any action from the responder.

Your account’s ability to connect may be limited by LinkedIn policy, according to which the maximum number of connection requests per account is 30,000. When you send a lot of requests as part of your outreach campaigns, LinkedIn may suspend your activity, which could affect the reputation of your account.

Revoking sent connection requests is a good practice to postpone reaching the limit, send more requests, and save the reputation of your LinkedIn account. Because of this feature, all pending LinkedIn requests that your contacts did not accept within the time limit will be automatically canceled and revoked, so you can use them again for other contacts.
