Split Inbox Preview

We've updated the Inbox layout to use two columns. The left-hand column shows the list of issues. You can scroll through notifications, take actions on issues, and delete notifications from this list just like you could previously. The right-hand column opens up the focused issue, so that you can review the notification and update the issue without losing context or having to move back and forth from the Inbox view. This should feel similar to how you experience most email application interfaces and we hope this lets you review notifications in a more productive way.

The new Inbox design is available as a Linear Preview feature. To enable it for your workspace, ask an admin to open the command menu with Cmd/Ctrl K and search for "Preview".

Issue templates for the Workspace

Issue templates can be used to guide creators to share information effectively and pre-fill certain fields for newly created issues.

We've revamped the management of issue templates. In addition to creating templates for teams, you can now also create templates for the workspace that will be accessible to all teams. We've also updated the UI around the creation of templates to make it easier to add and manage templates.

New Linear Guide

We’ve redesigned the Linear Guide to be more helpful to users. It also has new home at linear.app/docs.

The new design gives us more control over how we present and organize information, creates a more consistent user experience, and lays the groundwork for an expanded help center. You can browse through articles in the left-hand sidebar. All articles follow a consistent format and include a summary of keyboard, mouse, and command menu actions, configuration steps, and a clickable table of contents on the left-hand side. Search is coming soon.

Filters

A few weeks ago we released a new UI for adding filters as a preview feature. Now we have released the new filter experience to everyone. The interface for creating filters and views has been redesigned to be faster and more flexible.

With our new filters, you can now include or exclude part of a filter, control how label filters should match against issues in the view, and combine filters together to show views with all or any filters applied. To use different operators and refine queries, click on parts of the filter formula to modify it. We have also added date filters that let you match issues by when they were created, updated, completed, or when they're due.
