Linear app

Linear app

The Linear integration allows you to connect Team O'clock with your Linear workspace issues. Enabling the integration you will be able to
  1. Get Linear issues in a planning poker session for estimations
  2. Update Linear issue estimate based on planning poker team voting
  3. Convert a retrospective action item to an issue in Linear
Let's see how the integration works

Integration setup

To setup the integration you will need to be logged in to both services in your browser. You can head to your Integrations page in Team O'clock, click the Linear card to open the integration modal, and then navigate to the Connect to Linear. Now you can click the "Authorize Linear" button and click "Authorize Team O'clock" on the next screen, allowing the integration between the two services.

Now you are in the Team O'clock integrations page and can see an "Active" badge in the Linear integration card, signifying that the integration is ready for use.

Planning poker integration

While in a planning poker meeting you can access all your Linear issues by simply typing a word in the task addition input field of the page. Team O'clock will automatically search in your Linear workspace for issues containing that word in their title.

Clicking the plus button on one of the suggested issues it is added for estimation.

Additionally, you have the option to review the issue in your Linear workspace, by clicking on the Linear badge on the top left corner. Clicking the badge will navigate to your Linear workspace on a new browser tab.

Retrospective integration

Using the integration with your Team O'clock retrospective, you can generate Linear issues from action items and follow their progress through your Linear workspace.

Creation of issues from action items is available to facilitator when the retrospective meeting is finished. Facilitators enter a specific view with all the action items. You can check the selected action items from the list and click the "Add to Linear" button located on the top of the action items list.

When you click the Add to Linear button, you will see a popup where you define the Linear team that the selected issue will apply on.

Action items created as Linear issues, support automatic syncing between the two services. So, if someone completes the Linear issue, Team O'clock will automatically resolve the action item as well.

Disconnecting and reseting the integration

If you have syncing issues with the integration, you have the option to reconnect the two services from your company's account Integrations page. Locate and expand the Linear integration, then navigate to the Disconnect section and click Disconnect now. Then proceed to Connecting again.

To disconnect the two services, visit your company's account Integration page in Team O'clock, expand the Linear integration, navigate to Disconnect and click the Disconnect now button, as seen above.
