Write your Check-in from Slack

Learn how to post a Check-in from Slack

Writing a Check-in from Slack is the best way to let your team know what you’re working on without having to open a different application.

Setting up Slack and Range

To get started, make sure Range is connected to Slack and that your identity on Slack is linked to your identity in Range. You’ll want to be sure your team channel is subscribed to Range as well.

How to write your Check-in

To start writing your check-in, type the slash command /checkin from any channel or direct message in Slack. You can also get started by clicking the "Check-in from Slack" button in your team or DM reminders.

Then, start adding items to the Plan and What happened sections of your Check-in. Use the * to bullet each item and add a new line for each additional activity.

How to add attachments to your Check-in

Just like in the Range web app, you can add attachments to your Check-ins in Slack. To add attachments, select them from the dropdown menu. To share additional context on the attachment, you can reference it in your Plan or What happened sections using the bracketed number [1].

How to use Slack Check-ins for team-building

The next step is to take a moment to connect with your team on a personal level. You can answer a team question and share how you’re feeling with a color, emoji, and (optional) description. Checking in on a personal level helps your team feel more connected and build psychological safety over time.

How to publish your Check-in in Slack

Click Publish, and your Check-in will appear in the Range app for Slack and in Range.
