Linear User Onboarding: Magic Feeling

Linear User Onboarding: Magic Feeling

The Linear onboarding experience flows perfectly.
One input per step to help you set up your workspace and get started.

Linear helps to streamline your team’s software projects, sprints, and tasks.

As a marketer, I like to break down onboarding experiences from great B2B SaaS companies for inspiration.

Linear is no exception.

And I have to admit I *really* like this onboarding experience.
Enticing, educational, productive, with delightful UI details. For me, it was an instant Wow effect.
