Create new issue URLs

Link to a new issue creation page in Linear and prefill fields using query parameters.

Overview

The following links trigger the creation of a new Linear issue in any browser and you can add query parameters after any of them to pre-fill issue fields.

For example, you can assign new issues to a specific person, set an estimate, add labels, or combine multiple parameters with instructions in the description to create a template for a user to fill out.

Only available via the command menu
