Collaborate

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.


Project Updates

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.

It's also been helpful that members of our team outside of engineering feel comfortable in Linear. We can share issues without friction and they can use the tool without much onboarding.

Link issues to their related customer conversations

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.

Take action

Review Triage issues and then accept, merge, cancel or snooze them.

Support integrations

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.
