New updates and improvements to Linear.

Guest accounts

Previously, the only way to limit visibility within your Linear organization was to create private teams. We've now added another option to limit team visibility: guest accounts.

This team role is ideal for contractors or other workspace members who should only have access to a subset of Linear teams. Guests have full access to team information for all teams which they have joined, including viewing and creating projects as well as creating, editing, and commenting on any issues. They will not be able to see or discover any other teams in the workspace or have access to those issues. Guests can be part of one or multiple teams.

Read more about inviting guests here. Guests are paid seats and are available on any of our paid plans.
