Map your Linear workflow

When importing a Linear team as a data source, your workflow is automatically mapped to either Not started, In progress, or Done. This information is used when calculating the Timing metrics.

If the suggested mapping looks correct, you can accept it by clicking Looks good to me. To make changes, click Adjust mapping. The boxes become editable, and you can drag & drop items between them.

  • In progress = Work started but not completed

  • Done = Completed work
