New updates and improvements to Linear.

Front integration and universal links

Front integration

We're excited to add Front integration to Linear. Similar to our Zendesk and Intercom integrations, this lets you create or link existing Linear issues from Front conversations. If you've set up Triage for your team, then issues created in Front will show up there for your team to review and prioritize. From Front you can view more information about linked issues such as the assignee, status, and priority. We also re-open archived conversations when linked issues have been marked as completed or canceled.

The integration is build using Front's new Links API which adds Linear links directly into Front's conversation interface. Link one or multiple issues directly from the Linear integration in the Front app sidebar or from a Linear issue by adding the conversation URL. Enable the feature in workspace settings.

Universal links

We're rolling out a new change that will allow you to choose to have links open in the desktop app automatically instead of opening them in your default browser. Keep an eye out for the in-app prompt to remember this setting! The preference call also be toggled under account preferences.
