What is Range?

Range helps hybrid and remote teams find the right balance between async and real-time collaboration. Check-in asynchronously, pull in information from other tools, and connect with your teammates. Have fewer meetings — and still know what’s happening.

"Great tool for team interactions & accountability"

What do you like best?
It is very easy to use and interact with my team mates. The questions added each day for the stand-up help to provide some insights on my team and have some interaction in times where remote is causing a lot of isolation. The UI is clean and it is useful as a todo list app. I am able to add items and mark them as done throughout the day

What do you dislike?
Some of the questions are a bit repetitive. I can't add my own questions for the team which could be lots of fun. Sometimes the github integration does not work and some issues/prs are not added for me to insert them on my list.

Recommendations to others considering the product:
It is a great tool to manage your team and keep some interaction going. I would highly suggest it for distributed teams specially if you are having a hard time of keeping track of everyone's current work.

"The perfect distributed (and local) team productivity suite"

What do you like best?
Range integrations makes it a hub of information about your team health in terms of progress but also in the personal and cultural side with the daily check-ins and questions of the day. The meetings and objectives modules are really useful for teams that run metric oriented goals and reassess it frequently.

What do you dislike?
The daily check-ins are kind of unstructured and things are not task oriented. Even though you can create a checklist of things, it is unclear how to report progress other than what was completed and not. Some integrations (like calendar) also creates a lot of noise in the app suggesting calendar events from weeks behind, however, it is optional to use.

What problems are you solving with the product?
I currently run 5 different teams. I don't think I could have the context of everything that is going with goals, objectives, metrics, progress, and how my teams are feeling.

"Range is awesome for remote teams"

What do you like best?
I have used a few stand-up helpers for Slack for our remote team. Range by far gave the most flexibility where the team can check-in at their convenience.

What do you dislike?
We don't use many other features like objectives and such.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We are a distributed team with various time zones. The range does a great job not just asking for daily stand-up, they have amazing curated questions to bring more life to the meeting and to get to know other staff.

"Range is the tool we never knew we needed"

What do you like best?
In a remote environment, the best part about range is feeling connected. Being able to see our teammates plugging away, it gives me the sense that we are together and not apart. I like the feature about our mood, and the ability to comment on eachother's success -these are such tiny little things that help us align and row together in a way that was never possible before. I like that my team can all develop habits and flows that work for us, that we know at a certain time each one of us generally checks-in and it makes us really feel like we are connected, even though we are apart.

What do you dislike?
The only downsides is there are not enough integrations ! I wish range could capture everything I do! For example, the work I did on Figma was only capture when I worked in the browser, not on the desktop app.

What problems are you solving with the product?
The problem of connectedness in a remote world.

"I bring range to every team I manage (Big co and startup)"

What do you like best?
I've used Range as a manager of a 25 person team at Twitter and with a 6 person team at a 25 person company. In both situations it worked really well. At both places it's been helpful for keeping teammates aware of each others work and mental state (straightforward async standup) and encouraging consistent growth and improvement of teams around how they work (team development).

What do you dislike?
The objectives and meetings features are a little too vague. I've set them up, but they're tricky to blend into d. I respect the intent, daily use. I do want them to work better, but also it's not something that impacts our use of Range.

What problems are you solving with the product?
The problem it solves immediately is a nice way to do async standups. The problems it solves that you don't realize at the time, is having a diary of sorts to reflect back on around how a quart went or how you've been feeling.

Review Title: Range is the easiest way to stay in sync with your remote team

Pros: It was dead simple to set up and the Slack integration made it an immediate natural extension of our team's daily workflow!

Cons: The UX of Objectives is difficult to navigate and we are still finding new easter eggs hidden as we explore it more. I'm really interested in using Objectives as a lightweight replacement for tools like TeamGantt but it's not _quite_ there yet.

Switched From: 15Five

Reasons for Switching to Range: I haven't used 15five for years but some at our company still do. Range was so lightweight compared to 15five that it fit our team's needs immediately. Simple, beautiful, and awesome Slack integration.

Review Title: Business productivity

Pros: Am not the most organized person so am always on the lookout for in integrated tool that my team may also use and collaborate on. Range is the first solution that meets my needs after nearly 30 years of working.

Cons: Online tutorials based on functions would be of great help to newbies

Switched From: Microsoft Excel

Reasons for Switching to Range: Intuitive UX. Better collaboration

Comments (Benefits): Provided me with better management visibility over my achievements, task list, and plans; allowed for heightened collaboration on our work lists and projects

Review Title: Range is the tool we were missing!

Pros: The product is incredibly easy to use, and my team members have really jumped right in. It's a really clean, useful, fun way to collaborate with each other. Range provides an intelligent way to perform our daily stand-ups. The Range team has been awesome to engage with, and was open to hear my feedback and ideas. It's hard to say what I like most, as it is such a huge improvement over the other tools we tried to use before. All in all, the best aspects are the development of team culture and progress of cohesion and collaboration which Range encourages.

Cons: One thing is that we work across time zones as well as weekends. My team members who work on Saturday receive the Monday check-in question "How was your weekend?".

Switched From: Standuply

Comments (Benefits): Overall, it's been really incredible. We've gone from boring, under-utilized, lacking stand-ups in Slack to using a tool multiple times a day. It's been fantastic!

Review Title: A happy user of Range

Pros: It solves all the problems of daily stand-up. It's easy to track the history, interact with colleagues, and give me reminders for future tasks.

Cons: I use Range as my first step in my daily work and I write down my daily check-in with it. The only thing I would like to complain is I have to click the "daily check-in" in the menu rather than the screen pops up in my view at the first stage.

Switched From: Pivotal Tracker

Comments (Benefits): Very happy to have Range in my working process.
