Collaborate without constraints
A new center of gravity for productivity and collaboration. Linear keeps everyone in your organization aligned and working without friction. Engineers, designers, product managers and peers — all collaborating in one tool.
Keep everyone in the loop
Project Updates are short status reports that keep everyone informed about the progress and health of your projects.
Is the project still on track?
Project Updates consist of two simple elements: A health indicator and a rich text description. The health indicator provides a high-level signal of the current project state. The rich text description allows to provide more in-depth information on the progress of the project.
To get into the habit of posting updates regularly, you can set up automatic reminders that show up in your Inbox at a specified interval.
Read and subscribe
Project Updates appear directly on the Roadmap, giving you a clear and structured progress overview of all your team's projects at a single glance.
Subscribe to the projects that are most important to you and receive notifications whenever a new Project Update has been posted.
Share on Slack
Automatically share updates to Slack for enhanced visibility.
A simple workflow for requests and bug reports
Triage is your special inbox for managing issues created with integrations or by members outside of your Linear team. A simple yet powerful workflow to prioritize and assign tickets quickly.
A special inbox for your team
Anytime an issue is created from an integration or by a workspace member outside your specific Linear team, it will show up in Triage. This gives team members a chance to review, update, and prioritize issues before they are added to the team's workflow.
Review Triage issues and then accept, merge, cancel or snooze them.
Get more out of Triage by connecting it to our integrations with Intercom, Front, or Zendesk. This allows your customer support team to create new Linear issues and link to existing ones directly from their customer support tool.
Collaborate without losing context
We believe that productivity and collaboration shouldn’t be separated. Discuss details, share information, exchange feedback, or add context. Right where it matters.
Discuss issues seamlessly without losing context. Comments in Linear support full Markdown and can be augmented with code blocks, images, videos, and other files.
React to previous comments with 👍, 😕, 💖, or any other emoji.
Comment on issues directly from Slack.
Slack and Linear. Quite the pair.
Bring the magic of Linear to your favorite communication platform. The result is a powerful productivity partnership that keeps everyone in sync.
Create issues from Slack
Type the /linear command into any channel or direct message to create an issue directly from Slack. Add Slack-specific templates to pre-fill certain fields and make the issue creation process even faster and more consistent.
Sync threads between Slack and Linear
Bi-directionally sync comments between Slack and Linear, so that any message or file posted in the Slack thread will automatically cross-post to a comment thread in the Linear issue and vice versa. Linear also posts updates to the synced thread when the issue is completed, closed, or opened. This keeps everyone following along in Slack updated.
Enable personal notifications to receive Inbox notifications in Slack. Team and project notifications can be directed to dedicated Slack channels to keep everyone in the company updated.
Not on Slack?
With Linear's Discord integration you can also create issues directly from your Discord server.
Streamline work across design and engineering
Connect Linear with Figma to enable a realtime, bi-directional connection that keeps design work aligned across teams and tools.
Navigate design tasks in their spatial context
Get an overview of all Linear issues that have been linked to the Figma page you are currently viewing and instantly navigate to the corresponding element on the Figma canvas.
Frictionless design handoffs
Create new issues or link to existing ones directly from the Figma canvas. Issues can be connected to frames, sections, and pages of your design. When you update an issue from either Linear or Figma, the changes immediately get synced across both applications.
Keep a tight feedback loop with your customers
Seamlessly embed Linear into your existing customer support workflows. Connect your Front, Intercom or Zendesk accounts to facilitate keeping track of bugs and feature requests for you and your team.
Create new issues straight from your Zendesk widget. Use templates to follow your existing workflows and file high quality bug reports and feature requests.
Create and link Linear issues from Intercom conversations. Add templates to pre-fill available fields such as title, description, status, and label as well as create sub-issues when applicable.
Create Linear issues directly from Front conversations. Closed issues automatically re-open the Front conversation so you can get back to users with an update.
