New updates and improvements to Linear.


A screenshot of the Linear app with different SLAs notifications (high risk, low risk, moderate risk, breached, achieved)

Service-level agreements (SLAs)

Use SLAs to set guidance on when time-sensitive issues should be completed. This gives your team more controls to ensure important issues stay top of mind.

SLAs can be applied to issues manually, or automatically via a set of admin-configurable rules. Linear's default rules apply SLAs for high priority and urgent issues, but you can also substitute or add criteria to rules such as team, project, or label.

When SLAs are at risk of being breached or become breached, subscribers receive a notification immediately. To receive similar notifications for issues you are not subscribed to, you can enable additional SLA notifications options in your notifications settings.

SLAs are available to all workspaces on the Linear Plus and Linear Enterprise plans.
