Responsive web application
Linear’s web application is now responsive and scales for both tablets and smartphone screens. While most developers use Linear on their desktop, it’s common to add new issues in a meeting or quickly reply to a comment on the go. We didn’t want to dumb down the experience for mobile users and instead decided to make the whole application adapt to all screen sizes. This is an ongoing process and we’ll improve the experience over time.
Invite external users
External Gmail users can now be invited to join Linear teams. This should help onboard contractors and partners in situations where they don’t have access to your GSuite. Right now external users get access to all your workspace data with the limitation of not being able to invite other users. We’ll expand access level control over time. If your team has more specific needs, please send us feedback
Pages are now available for each label, grouping issues tagged with the label. Clicking a label in the issue list or detail views opens the label page. You can add it to your sidebar for quick access through favorites. There’s also a new shortcut for quickly jumping into a label page (O then L).
