Filters for Roadmap & Projects

We recently overhauled filters for issues and now we've also added filters to the Roadmap and Projects pages. These filters will help you get a better view of what's going on in your projects and refine views to just the projects you want to see. You can filter the Roadmap or team Projects pages by project name, status, teams, project lead, members and start, target, updated, and completion dates. Just like when filtering issues, you can combine and modify filters.

Placeholders for templates

We've upgraded issue templates to include the option to add a "placeholder" which can be easily filled out by teammates later when they use the template. To add a placeholder simply select some text when editing a template and click the aA icon in the toolbar to convert it. When a teammate uses the template, they simply need to start typing in the placeholder text area to replace it with text and relevant issue details.

Split Inbox

A couple weeks ago we released Split Inbox as a preview feature and we've now enabled it for everyone using Linear. The new interface for the Inbox allows you to view your list of notifications side by side with the issue related to the notification, making it easier and faster to go through your notifications and take actions with more context.
