Connect Range and Linear with Zapier

Automatically send your Linear activity to Range for more complete Check-ins

Using Zaps to connect Range to various tools and apps allows you to automatically send work from an app to Range. In Range, these actions, such as creating a new issue, updating the status of a task, or commenting on an item, then show up as suggestions in Range for you to include in your daily Check-ins.

Getting started

Create your Zapier account

Before beginning, a Zapier account is necessary to use Zaps and connect Range with other apps. If you do not already have an account, visit the Range profile page on the Zapier website.

Create your Range account

You will need to have a Range account. Click here to create your account if you don’t already have one.

Completing the Zap template

Range-created Zap templates are available for the following Linear events:

  • New comments
  • New issues
  • Updated issues

You may notice that there are other supported triggers and actions that can be connected. While we have not created templates for these Zaps, follow the steps below to create the connection.
