New updates and improvements to Linear.

Faster sub-issue creation

Faster sub-issue creation

Previously, when you created issues in Linear, it wasn't possible to add sub-issues unless you opened the issue in full screen editing mode. We've improved the issue creation flow so that you can quickly add sub-issues from the modal as well.

Press Cmd + Shift + O to add sub-issues and start breaking the parent issue down into smaller chunks of work.

This new fast sub-issue creation flow is also available in full-screen issue creation flow. Press V to open the full screen editing view, then use the shortcut to add sub-issues without needing to save the issue first.

Templates with sub-issues

We've added sub-issues to issue templates. Now, you can break down your issue template into smaller sub-issues. This works for both team and workspace level templates. To apply a template, use Ctrl Option Shift T from the modal or Option C from the full screen view.

Calendar preferences

If you prefer that your calendar starts on Mondays, now it can in Linear. We've added a personal preference for what you'd like the first day of the week to be in the date picker. Date pickers across the application will respect this choice. Visit your account preferences to customize this setting.

New website

After months of explorations (our design file became so big, it broke Figma), we finally shipped a new homepage:
