Set up team channels for Check-ins in Slack

Subscribing Slack channels to Check-ins and other updates from Range

The best way to build transparency and awareness of work through Range is to share information where people are already working—including Slack. Once you subscribe a shared team channel in Slack to Range, your team will see Check-Ins, goal updates, and meeting notes directly in Slack.

What you'll see in the channel

Once you've successfully subscribed a channel to a team in Range, you'll start to see several types of updates:

  • Check-ins: Each day Check-ins shared by team members will be sent to the Slack channel.
  • Meeting notes: Meeting notes from Meetings associated with the team will be sent to the Slack channel.
  • Goal updates: When someone updates the status of a goal owned by the team in Range, that update will be shared in Slack.

Slack Connect channels

Slack Connect channels are Slack channels connected to multiple workspaces. With Slack Connect channels, you can easily collaborate with external partners, even if they aren't members of your Slack workspace.

If your team wants updates from Range to appear in a Slack Connect channel, all you have to do is invite the Range bot to that channel, subscribe the channel to a Range tag or team, and customize your Range notification settings. Learn more about adding Range to a Slack connect channel.
