In general, Range makes as many operations accessible to any user in the workspace. High-performance teams work best in high-trust environments, and autonomy and agency remove organizational friction.
Even so, some controls are necessary in order to secure sensitive information or prevent inconvenience for other users. In order to do that Range utilizes a combination of role-based access controls (RBAC) and attribute based access controls (ABAC).
Admins and Owners may:
Workspace level integrations — e.g. Slack and GitHub — may be restricted to admins on request.
Owners act as the Data Controller for the workspace and may:
By default, Check-ins and other information shared in Range may be viewed by any user. Currently, Range does not allow for teams, check-ins, objectives, or entire meetings to be private. Private meeting agenda items are available.
Any user has the ability to ‘lock’ team membership. Once a team is locked, new members must be added to the team by an existing team member or a workspace admin.
Locked teams allow you to control a team’s memberships but do not affect the default visibility of actions taken by those users.
To share private Check-ins, each user will opt to publish privately. The privacy setting is sticky, such that once a user opts for a private Check-in, they will continue to share private Check-ins until they change the setting.
Private Check-ins are not shared to Slack.
When a Private Check-in is published, only current team members will have permission to see the check-in.
Team membership changes trigger notifications that can be received by email, Slack, or as desktop notifications so you can be confident in who will see your private Check-ins.
Locked teams adds an additional layer of control which pairs well with private check-ins.
The Range Meeting tool allows for private notes to be associated with an agenda item. These notes are restricted to attendees, and only attendees may modify a meeting. Attendees added to a meeting in the future are not permitted to see past private notes, however open action items will be visible since they are always carried over to the next meeting.
