Check-ins are a valuable way to keep teams connected. With the Range app in Slack, teammates can write, read, and react to Check-ins from the comfort of their Slack workspace.
The process for publishing Check-ins is simple. Each day, teammates share an update on what they did yesterday and what they’re planning to do today. They also share how they’re feeling using a color and an emoji and answer a team question. These culture-building moments help the team feel connected even when working remotely.
Here's how it works.
To get started running Range Check-ins with Slack, make sure your Range account is connected to Slack. From there, subscribe a team channel to Range and make sure each of your teammates also links their Slack identity to their Range identity.
Don’t forget to tell your team why you’re doing Check-ins — to help you stay in sync without extra meetings.
With Range, writing Check-ins takes just a few minutes. Range will send a notification to your team via Slack to remind everyone to share their check-ins. Teammates can write their Check-ins from within Slack or via the Range web app.
As the team shares their check-ins, Range will send each team member's Check-in to your team channel to ensure everyone can read and react to the updates. You can review them directly in Slack or your Check-ins feed in the Range web app.
Reading through Check-ins, you might notice that some teammates have flagged blockers or shared that they aren’t feeling well. Whether you're a manager or an individual contributor, this is an opportunity to offer help and make sure the team feels supported. Your teammates will be notified in Slack any time you comment on their updates.Connect Slack to Range
