New updates and improvements to Linear.


Linear app with the light theme, showing search results of issues that include the word design


We've spent the last couple of months rebuilding search from the ground up. The UI has been refined. We've improved how we display results as well as the accuracy, for instance for words split with / or _. You can now reliably use "phrase matching", -negative keywords AND boolean operators in your search queries.

Not only that, but results will show comments, documents, and projects as well as issues.

Emoji Icons

We've learned that some of our customers are heavy emoji users so we've added the ability to set emojis as icons for teams, projects, and custom views. You can even upload custom emoji, individually or by importing emoji from Slack (find this option in workspace settings) to give your Linear a more personal touch.

Feature pages

Still need to convince your team to finally make the switch over to Linear? We just added a brand-new set of Product Pages to our website with an extensive list of all of Linear's features and product specifications. Already convinced your team to make the switch? You might discover new features you haven't used yet (or just enjoy some of the little design details we sprinkled on top of the page ✨).
