Auto-assign and update status

Auto-assign issues to yourself and move them to a started status when you copy the git branch name.

PR review status

See the reviewers and review states of your pull and merge requests directly in Linear.

Put a label on it.

Structure and organize your issues with multi-select labels or single-select label groups.

Organize and standardize work across your company


Create labels to help organize issues on your team. You can filter by label when creating views and sifting through search results to help you find the issues you need. Labels can be created on the workspace level, or they can be team-specific, so they can be customized to your team's needs.

Label Groups

For even greater control, you can create groups of single-select labels. This allows you to add attributes such as Issue Type, Version, Component, or Platform to your issues.

Powerful search

Quickly find what you’re looking for

Look for issues across your entire workspace, including archived and deleted issues. Linear’s search incorporates issue titles, descriptions, and comments.
