Easier invites
Inviting people into your workspace is a key component of access management and we’ve improved the flow that makes it easier to accept invites and mitigates some previous edge cases.
Accepting an invite email will now work even if you’re already signed into Linear and have an existing account, and works even if you’re not signed into the correct account that the invite is for. This makes the entire process clearer.
We’ve also added the ability to easily resend invites. You can find this feature in the Members section where the outstanding invitations are displayed at the end of the list.
Webhook improvements
We’ve recently made a few improvements to webhooks. You can now find webhooks in organization API settings, allowing you to create webhooks for all public teams in your organization. Existing webhooks will continue to work in the same way, and you can still create webhooks for individual teams.
OAuth applications now also have the ability to create webhooks. This is useful if you want notifications about relevant events pushed to your app rather than having to poll for updates. Whenever a new organization authorizes your application, a webhook will be created, sending the events of your choice to your provided URL. We recommend switching to webhooks rather than frequently polling, especially if you are polling a large data set. Check out the webhook documentation for more information.
Multi-team boards & manual ordering
This feature and some fixes below were included in a changelog earlier this week.
It’s now possible to use board layout for all* views in Linear. This includes the “All” tab under multi-team views as well as all custom views. Previously, only views containing issues from a single team could be manually ordered and viewed in board layout. Since teams can have their own states and each state is its own column on a board, some issues on multi-team boards will be moved to another team when they’re dragged to certain columns. When moving an issue to a state that only exists on another team, you will need to confirm that you meant to move the issue to that team. In addition to board layout, manual ordering in list layout is also available for multi-team views. To enable board view or manual ordering, go to view preferences in the top right corner of the view.
*My Issues, Archived issues, and completed cycles can not be viewed using board layout
