We designed Range to help you effortlessly use best practices in your meetings. It’s easier than ever to get started with meeting templates and a dashboard for all your meetings and action items.
Meetings in Range connect to your daily workflow, ensuring the insights you gain within a meeting live beyond the meeting. As additional work and tasks are discussed during a meeting, you can create and assign action items that will appear in a convenient list on your meetings dashboard. You're also able to easily add your assigned action items to your Range Check-in.
As your team checks in with Range, their mood and status will appear within the meeting as well. Any flags from Range Check-ins can be automatically filtered and reviewed within a meeting, so your meetings become even richer as team members use Range asynchronously.
Notes are even automatically sent to all meeting attendees through email or Slack, whichever you prefer. If someone can’t make a meeting, they’ll be able to see all the notes and action items afterward, keeping everyone in the loop. Worried about sensitive information in the notes? No worries — mark that topic as “private” and we’ll leave it out.
Tip: If your team uses Zoom, you’re in luck! Our new Zoom app allows you to use some of the best features of Range from within the Zoom app itself!
Meetings in Range encourage engagement from everyone in attendance. Anyone can take notes, assign action items, or add topics to the agenda. It’s easy to see where others in the meeting focus their attention by watching them engage through real-time collaboration.
Our icebreakers are a great way to include everyone in the meeting. The icebreakers tool includes a spinner to randomly go around the “room”. Try holding an “opening round” with icebreakers to allow everyone to say hello and answer an interesting question. This supports the theory that if attendees speak early in a meeting, they’re more likely to speak up later in the meeting as well.
You may also notice the spinner includes the moods and statuses of your team members. Calibrating yourself to the well-being of your team helps you know who to focus on, who to include, and how to navigate the team's emotions that day.
If someone can’t make it to the meeting, is interrupted by kids, or isn’t focusing well that day, all the notes will still be available to review later. No one needs to feel left out or excluded because they can catch up with the topics, action items, and notes that are automatically sent out when the meeting ends. They won’t even need to go hunting for the meeting notes — we’ll send it right to them.
You and your team deserve better meetings. Your meetings can be more inclusive, effective, and efficient by running them with Range. Using our meeting tools can empower your whole team to begin running more effective meetings.
