Projects

Projects are meant for larger initiatives and features you have on your roadmap.

Projects view in Linear

Projects define larger pieces of work that have a clear outcome or completion date, such as launching a new feature. They can be shared across multiple teams and come with their own unique features, graph, and notification options.

Shift P to add issue to project

O then P to open project

G then P to go to your team projects view

Cmd/Ctrl I to open or close the project details sidebar

G then R to view all projects on the company roadmap

Projects are a default issue property.

Each team has a projects view that displays a list or timeline of all the team's projects. It has similar functionality to the Roadmap but is limited to only your team's projects.

Click into a project to see all the issues associated with it. Find the total estimated effort or total issue count in the top bar (hover over the estimate to see an issue count). Use View options to customize the sorting, ordering, and grouping or apply filters with the shortcut F.

Create projects from the Roadmap or your team's project view. Press the Create project button, which will prompt you to add specific fields. You're only required to include a project name but we recommend setting a project lead and milestone as well as updating the icon. You can always right-click on a project in the roadmap to edit these properties.

Move existing issues to the project by selecting the issues and then adding them to the project with Shift P. To create new issues, use C from the project view which will automatically associate the issue with the project.

How we work: The project lead is in charge of writing the spec and general execution. Other team members collaborate on the brief, split up areas of work, and then write their own issues.

Press the sidebar icon or use Cmd/Ctrl I to toggle the project details sidebar on or off. You'll be able to update any properties from here as well as add resources such as external files, create project documents, and view the project graph.

Projects can be shared across multiple teams. Add more teams when creating a project or from the project details page by clicking on the team name, then marking off more teams in the dropdown. You can also select the + button in the topbar of any project view to add more teams. Once you add more than one team, the project view will create tabs so you can toggle between seeing all issues or issues on specific teams.
