New updates and improvements to Linear.

Multi-team boards & manual ordering

Multi-team boards & manual ordering

It's now possible to use board layout for all* views in Linear. This includes the "All" tab under multi-team views as well as all custom views. Previously, only views containing issues from a single team could be manually ordered and viewed in board layout. Since teams can have their own states and each state is its own column on a board, some issues on multi-team boards will be moved to another team when they’re dragged to certain columns. When moving an issue to a state that only exists on another team, you will need to confirm that you meant to move the issue to that team. In addition to board layout, manual ordering in list layout is also available for multi-team views. To enable board view or manual ordering, go to view preferences in the top right corner of the view.

* My Issues, Archived issues, and completed cycles can not be viewed using board layout
