New updates and improvements to Linear.

Personal Slack notifications

Personal Slack notifications

Over the past few weeks we made significant updates to Linear's Slack integration. The most notable change is that you can now receive personal notifications through Slack in addition to getting them via push notifications, email and viewing them in your Inbox. Once enabled, Linear will appear under Apps in your Slack workspace sidebar and Linear notifications will show up there. This makes it faster to reply to comments on the issues you have subscribed to and to know when your teammates send emoji reactions to your comments. Other notification types include new issues assigned to you and alerts on urgent priorities.

Enable personal Slack notifications in your notification settings.
