Range is a powerful tool that helps teams stay more focused, productive, and connected to their work. With so many companies and organizations using Microsoft Teams as their primary team communication platform, we’re excited to connect the value of Range to the very place where so much of your team’s collaboration and work happens.
To learn more about the value of connecting Range and Microsoft Teams, check out this blog post.
Before connecting the Range app to Microsoft Teams, we recommend creating a Range workspace for your team. If you already have one, continue reading this help article. If you do not, you can quickly create a workspace by clicking here and signing up using the Sign in with Microsoft button.
Step 1: Add the Range app to a team
The first step in connecting the Range app to Microsoft Teams is finding and adding Range. Go to Apps in the left side of Teams and search for ‘Range’ in your instance of Microsoft Teams to add it. Once there, click Add to a team.
You will be prompted to type the team or channel name you wish to add the Range app to. Type the name to search, make your selection, and click Set up a tab.

Step 2: Connect your team to your Range tab
After creating your new Range tab, you’ll return to your instance of Microsoft Teams. Here, you’ll be prompted to log in and assign a Range team to the tab you just set up. Select the appropriate team and click Save.

Step 3: Explore your new Range tab
Once you’ve set up your Range tab in Microsoft Teams, you’ll be able to review your team’s Check-ins from Range entirely within Microsoft Teams.
Like other apps you’ve connected to Microsoft Teams, the Range app will appear in a tab.
This tab is your team’s feed, and it’s similar to the home feed you’ll find in Range. Here, you’ll find all your team’s Check-ins — including their plans for the day, what happened yesterday, team question responses, and mood — and be able to react to the work being shared with you.
You’ll also be able to use Range during meetings in Microsoft Teams. Range can be added as a tab to meeting invites, allowing you and your teammates to (before meetings) review:
You can also add Range as a button in the meeting controls bar so that you can access all of the same information during meetings.
The great thing here is that you can add the Range tab to multiple teams within Microsoft Teams, and each instance of a tab will remain a part of a single team. You’ll be able to review Check-ins from the teammates joining you in your meeting, giving you quick access to all of the information you need to better prepare and focus for the session ahead of you, such as:
And this is just the beginning of what you can do when you connect the Range app to Microsoft Teams.
