Inbox

The Inbox is your notification center in Linear and where you’ll find important updates on issues in your workspace.

Inbox view in Linear

You'll receive an Inbox notification for key events on your subscribed issues. You're automatically subscribed to issues when you create them, are assigned them, or are mentioned in an issue description or comment. Find a full list of notification types and how they work in this doc.

You cannot customize which notifications go to the Inbox (they all will) but you can customize which ones trigger other alerts in notification settings.

To unsubscribe from an issue via the Inbox view, you must click into it first and then unsubscribe use Shift S, the button in the top menu bar, or the unsubscribe option in the Activity feed.

To snooze issuess, type the shortcut H and then select an option or customize your own date and time. Hide or show Snoozed Inbox items in View Options and see all Snooze options in the docs.

Press Cmd/Ctrl F to bring up the quick search bar and then type to filter the list by title, issue ID, notification type, or assignee. It'll update the list to show only issues matching that search. For example, see only notifications where someone commented on an issue or issues that have been auto-closed by Linear. Esc will clear the search.

Press Space to activate Issue Peek, which will show you a preview of the issue description and details without requiring you to open the issue. Press Space again to turn off Issue Peek or press and hold to keep Issue Peek active only while Space is depressed.

Open view options to update what properties are displayed on your notifications. You can choose to hide or show snoozed notifications as well as properties including status, project, labels, cycles, due date, and issue ID.
