Favorite views you frequently use.

Favorites are personal shortcuts which appear in your sidebar.

O then F to open favorites

If a view can be favorited, you'll see the outline of a star in the top bar next to the view name. You can favorite the following views in Linear:

  • Issues
  • Projects
  • Specific Cycles
  • Custom Views
  • Label views (click on the label on an issue to go to this view)
  • Default views: all issues, active issues, backlog, board, active cycles, upcoming cycles.

The following views cannot be favorited. Instead, you can create a custom view filtered to show issues in these views:

  • User profile (filter for issues assigned by the user and relevant statuses)

To favorite, select the ⭐ icon in the page header. You can also select the issue and search for the favorite command. Favorites do not always show up on contextual menus.

To create a folder for favorites, hover over favorites and click the icon to the right to create a new folder, or create from the ⭐ icon menu. You can give it a name of your choosing and easily drag any existing favorites in or out of the folder.

Once you favorite an issue, you'll see a Favorites section appear in your sidebar above Your Teams. You can access favorites by clicking on them from the sidebar or searching for them in the command menu. The shortcut O then F will open a menu from which you can open a favorite, too.

Hover over the favorite in the sidebar and click on the X to remove it. This is not reversible but you can easily add the favorite again by going to the issue or view and selecting the star.
