We use Figma at Linear and our integration makes it easy for you to collaborate on design.

Enable Figma

Connect to Figma under workspace settings. We recommend that you do this in a browser and not the macOS app. You only need to enable it once to apply the integration to the full workspace.

We recommend connecting to Figma via the web browser. If the integration doesn't work in the macOS app, disconnect the integration from the browser, open the macOS app and clear application data (go to menu bar > Linear (next to File) > clear application data), then reconnect via the browser. If you still have trouble, reach out.

Sharing Figma links

Simply copy a link to a specific artboard or file and paste it into a Linear issue description or comment.

We automatically convert the link into a design preview. Even if the file changes, the snapshot in Linear remains as it appeared when the comment or description was created. Click to preview the embedded file without having to leave Linear.

We currently support interactive in-app preview of publicly shared Figma files only. We're considering building support for private files in the future. We built this as a custom integration using Figma's API with their OAuth2 authentication instead of using their standard embed to create a faster experience.

It can still take some time to load the files and is one of the few places in the app where you might see a loading icon. You can save the issue or comment while it's loading and it will passively load in the background.
