I've just replaced the transmission oil pan and filter on my 2007 Range Rover Sport s/c. Bit of a challenge but got there in the end, and no leaks ( so far that is! ). Could someone please tell me the correct procedure for ensuring the fluid level is correct.
Thanks.

You have to remove the drain plug and to know the correct amount of fluid it has to drip out of there one drip per second more or less, it’s the only way to know

Forgot to mention but the transmission has to be warmed up to normal running temperature

Thanks. When checking for the slow drip out of the fill hole, with the engine running, should it be in 'park' or 'drive' ?

It would park or neutral after at operating temp and running through the gears while stationary, parking brake active in both cases. It would never be in drive no matter how much you trust the person with their foot on the brake.

Thanks RRToadHall. I'll definitely feel safer under there with park selected!
