Linear changelog: Issue templates, copy team settings

Issue templates
If you have a certain structure of issues that you use frequently or have some information you’d always like to be filled out by people creating issues, you can now use templates to make your workflow a whole lot faster.
Templates can be created by anyone in the team and are scoped to that team. You can review the current templates, create new ones or edit existing ones in the new Templates section of Team settings.
In addition to prefilling your issue title or body, you can also set the labels and priority of issue templates.
Copy team settings
Teams in Linear can define their workflow, labels and other settings, including the schedule of any cycles they might have been using. Many times, new teams would just want to copy over the workflow and labels from an existing team rather than fill them out themselves.
We added a new option to the team creation view to let you copy over all settings from an existing team.

  • Optimized performance of board view
  • Added ability to filter by estimate points

  • You can now press and hold J/K to navigate the issue lists up and down
  • You can now rename templates via the action menu
  • Added a new preference to assign an issue to yourself if you copy its git branch name and the issue is unassigned
  • Keyboard shortcuts are now correctly capitalized throughout the application
  • Several fixes to board ordering and rendering
  • There’s a new action to mark all notifications as read
