Create Linear issues from Slack messages and set up notifications
The Slack integration makes it easy to create, update, and view Linear issues and their data directly from Slack. Notifications keep colleagues in the loop on projects and issues.
How it works
Create Linear issues from Slack by using the More Actions menu on a Slack message. The issue modal will prepopulate with a template if a default template has been set for the selected team.
Links from Linear sent in Slack will expand to show a preview with key properties such as description, status, and assignee for issue links and description, status, and target dates for project links. Expanded links will include actions when available so that members can update issues directly from Slack.
The app offers several types of notifications for Slack. Enable personal notifications so that Inbox notifications also go to Slack. Team and project notifications can be directed to dedicated Slack channels to keep everyone in the company updated regardless of whether they have Linear accounts.
Initial configuration of the integration can be completed in Settings by a user who is both a Slack and Linear admin. This step enables creating issues from Slack, message actions, and expandable links for every member of the workspace.
