  • JesseWienholts Jesse Wienholts (@JesseWienholts) reported

    @vavroom @SlackHQ So much this. Always nice to see people adding alt text as a reply to the original message, but come on @SlackHQ please fix it #a11y

  • theRSSfeeds RSS (@theRSSfeeds) reported

    @SlackHQ the newest version of the iOS app has so many issues with threads. I’m told I have unread threads, but when I go to check it there’s nothing new loaded. I have to retry multiple times, sometimes fully restarting the app.

  • tdnvl Thomas Deneuville (@tdnvl) reported

    Custom @SlackHQ emoji are broken this morning and I don't know how I'm going to do my job TBH.

  • browninfosecguy Sonny 🦌 (@browninfosecguy) reported

    @FrankMcG @SlackHQ I had same issue with new work laptop

  • FrankMcG Frank McGovern (@FrankMcG) reported

    Am I the only one that has the constant problem of @SlackHQ not launcing at startup after some updates or it not listing in my task tray and is hidden by the arrow and I have to keep moving it back. Every so often an update causes one of these issues. Extremely annoying.

  • ehrw Jonas (@ehrw) reported

    @SlackHQ Problem solved. The in app clear cache that's located under Advanced worked. Not the one in Android. Odd but it's solved. Thanks 💜

  • JoeGarlick Joe Garlick (@JoeGarlick) reported

    @SlackHQ Yes, I think it was set to that, but it wasn't working. Or maybe the checkbox was unchecked (even though I had it checked previously). Obviously not an issue for me anymore but could be a bug for the devs. :)

  • mboisso Maxime Boissonneault (@mboisso) reported

    @jennita @SlackHQ @Twitter This change has completely broken the app for me. Slack used to be great in an IT crowd, now it is terrible.

  • jazzychad Chad Etzel (@jazzychad) reported

    @ltm @kressaty Both of these problems drive me crazy @SlackHQ

  • drinu276 Andrea (@drinu276) reported

    @SlackHQ First off, thanks for the help!! Second, I followed your instructions, and restarted Slack. The only difference is that now my notifs have the workspace name on top. I got two new dropdowns to select which monitor and which corner to show the notif on, but no way to disable yet

  • iancrew Ian Crew (@iancrew) reported

    4) Conversations that might need to be referenced several years down the road. Once things are a day or two old in @SlackHQ, they might as well be gone forever. (Yes, I know there's a search capability. It's useless. And even if you find something, there's no way to resend it.)

  • ivanfetch Ivan Fetch (@ivanfetch) reported

    @SlackHQ Thank you - I cleared my cache this morning and I can edit again. I guess I should clear my cache, even if it seems like it wouldn't relate to an issue I'm having. :)

  • markhealey Mark 👨‍💻 (@markhealey) reported

    @SlackHQ “tap to expand” image in iOS not working

  • mboisso Maxime Boissonneault (@mboisso) reported

    @SlackHQ @JshReynolds It is their new wysiwyg that broke down everything that worked before. They appear to still be sticking with this broken editor unfortunately. Time to look for Slack alternatives for my future needs...

  • tekelve matty (@tekelve) reported

    @welles @SlackHQ Same bug here (for some time now) on multiple up-to-date iOS devices. Also everyone i know (even on other workspaces) have the same problem.

  • _petegoldsmith Peter Goldsmith (@_petegoldsmith) reported from Melbourne, State of Victoria

    @SlackHQ It just seems redundant. If you forget it, you don’t get the ability to reset, you get a one time login link (which is great)

  • Blu3Gh0st Jake B (@Blu3Gh0st) reported

    @welles @SlackHQ Mines doing the same thing, but so is O365 so I thought it was a phone issue.. but your on iOS and I'm not.

  • stas_kulesh Stas Kulesh 🥝 (@stas_kulesh) reported

    @SlackHQ It’s about losing control over what you’re doing on YOUR machine. For example on iOS, one can turn the auto-correction off and I’m sure you remember how many people were complaining when Apple rolled out the feature that was not working 100% and was changing what people typed 😖

  • ajavestro Alyssa Avestro, PhD (@ajavestro) reported

    @psobolewskiPhD @SlackHQ I told my grp I'd like us to give it a genuine try this term & then we'd decide together in the new year if we want to continue. I set up all member access to channels for general, random (non work), grp social chat & various #help-technique (NMR, UV, EChem, X-ray, etc);... 1/n

  • nickgartmann Sometimes Business (@nickgartmann) reported

    @Superhuman @Polymail I'm willing to pay for a good email experience and if @Superhuman uses the money to double-down on building a great product, then I'm along for the ride. But there is going to be a lot of pressure for them to get worse and worse UX a la @polymail and @SlackHQ

  • BradyDale Brady Dale (@BradyDale) reported

    @SlackHQ If live calls highlighted the channel the same way an unread message does, that would help a lot. The channel my call comes in never has unreads at the time of the call so I often have to search for it.

  • mboisso Maxime Boissonneault (@mboisso) reported

    Yet another week with @SlackHQ's formatting of code not working... so frustrating...

  • togakangaroo George Mauer (@togakangaroo) reported

    More issues with the new @SlackHQ I want to post the same code in a couple different slacks to ask for help - the formatting in one doesn't apply in the other when you copy paste. This is a pretty major use case.

  • rbgarga Renato Botelho (@rbgarga) reported

    @SlackHQ @sebawebber I'm still seeing this problem

  • Poppa_Shell S̀͆̚h͂ͬ͆̇̋̍̒e͐ͬͤ͑͂ͯ̌lͦdo̓̄̆n̄̋ͦ̍ͦ̏ (@Poppa_Shell) reported

    @PhillipWylie @SlackHQ Phil, this just happened to me on iOS the other day. It randomly removed 3 workspaces. First and only time it has happened so far. Glad to hear it’s a known issue.

  • bmw2002tnt Todd Keltner (@bmw2002tnt) reported

    @JohnBWellsCTM @SlackHQ John ---fat dan aka false prophet dan was saying rather interesting/nasty things about you this weekend time to shut that whole field McConnell and the entire crew down

  • schollii2 Oliver Schoenborn (@schollii2) reported

    @SlackHQ @sibs2bad786 This fixed problem for me, thx!

  • jslate Jonathan Slate (@jslate) reported

    @SlackHQ @leecheneler @mboisso Let me add one more vote, I was so disappointing to see a WYSIWYG editor appear in Slack. It seems like a bad omen for what's to come down the road. The little glitches you've fixed so far won't be the last. At a _minimum_ please allow us to turn it off.

  • bmw2002tnt Todd Keltner (@bmw2002tnt) reported

    @JohnBWellsCTM @SlackHQ wow John so I get shut down on your Yt channel for calling out fake field fat dan felony kirk and the others sad wow who is your moderator that is a little BS as you your self would say

  • bcconover Ben Conover (@bcconover) reported

    @MoDemParty @SlackHQ @JonErikHansen @stl7thward @JonErikHansen has let me know you can't add hyphens. I'll fix it later. 🤣

  • PatrikTheDev patrikSvoboda(actSmart:)  (@PatrikTheDev) reported

    @Wizages @nitoTV @SlackHQ Oh you mean this, yeah that’s not working.

  • nerdfacerory Rory (@nerdfacerory) reported

    @SlackHQ Don’t be afraid/ashamed to ask for help.

  • alexandrpaliy Александр Палий (@alexandrpaliy) reported

    Hey @SlackHQ , Ubuntu 18.04 here. When I change keyboard layout (alt+shift if it matters), slack often loses focus from typing area. Happens to me and my co-worker (same OS). No other apps have this issue.

  • ehrw Jonas (@ehrw) reported

    @SlackHQ @sibs2bad786 I still have this issue. Cleared the cache and it doesn't work. I don't want to reset the whole app when it happens 😴

  • larsberg_ Lars Bergstrom (@larsberg_) reported

    @kearwoodgilbert @SlackHQ I actually have no problem with essays, since I can read them async/later! It's when things that should be non-urgent turn into an hour of back-and-forth in slack while 50% of the participants are in other simultaneous meetings/slack threads at any given point.

  • CHERdotdev Cher (@CHERdotdev) reported

    @boundless_maddy @SlackHQ Yes, the app is up-to-date. I might need to figure out if there's more to reproducing the issue. I simply just discover the whitespace at the end of the message, removed it (cuz linting error brain) and that let me send it. I'll see what else I did that caused it.

  • CHERdotdev Cher (@CHERdotdev) reported

    Hey @SlackHQ - not sure if this is intentional, but if you have a trailing space on your message, the send button is grayed out, and there's no error to indicate there's white space preventing the message from being sendable. Thanks 🙌

  • henrikmo Henrik (@henrikmo) reported

    @SlackHQ Yes, we tried the toolbar button, but sadly the issue my colleagues and I have with the change, is the deep formatting changes that disrupt our flow. That change is sadly not affected by the Aa button. Let me know if we can convince you somehow to make this opt-in 😟.

  • tdshap Tess Shapiro (@tdshap) reported

    @SlackHQ @Ronef Just ran into this issue.. if user's expected privacy is a concern for this, you could add opt in messaging when the channel goes to public that allows each user to make their messages visible to new comers.

  • w0ts0n w0ts0n (@w0ts0n) reported

    @SlackHQ Seems to be pasting links and just generally typing. cc @KamilJozwiak @chirayunix who have also been experiencing problems.

  • cescoferraro CESCO (@cescoferraro) reported

    @SlackHQ there is no daylight saving time in Brazil anymore. The clock is driving us insane on the OS X app. Help

  • r2vq Keane Quibilan (@r2vq) reported

    @SlackHQ Thanks for the reply @SlackHQ, but the toolbar isn't an issue. What I would like is to write my message in markdown, see the control characters (like asterisks), and be able to copy-paste whole messages with markdown characters.

  • szeleitamas Tamás Szelei (@szeleitamas) reported

    @SlackHQ @fractallambda I'd also like to add two more issues (I reported them via /feedback but they were closed). %

  • fractallambda Brice Fernandes (@fractallambda) reported

    @SlackHQ Well, similar usability issues with blockquotes and the `>` character. It's overall a bad experience using message formatting now. 🙁

  • davidcryix David Price Ⓜ️🍑🍃 (@davidcryix) reported

    @SlackHQ Tried most of that. Even uninstalled. They can post fine via their iPad but not the iPhone. Implies client side issue but not sure how such a bug could persist through uninstalling the app.

  • SaucerStudio Flying Saucer Studio (@SaucerStudio) reported

    @SlackHQ Don't be afraid to debate ideas with colleagues, but you should also know when to back down. Sometimes arguing isn't worth it.

  • mtabini Marco Tabini (@mtabini) reported

    To whomever is responsible for autocompletion @SlackHQ: Please fix your search. PLEASE.

  • justinph Justin Heideman (@justinph) reported

    @SlackHQ This is a regression from the previous behavior and now how markdown works. You should fix this.

  • ppilaniwala Pankaj Pilaniwala (@ppilaniwala) reported

    @vladsavov I think @SlackHQ and @Uber will eventually become profitable. The issue with Uber is they have had bad business practices and exposed their finds way too early and spread their funds way too thin for hyper-growth. They need to slowdown and circumvent their expenses

  • abustamante antonio 🍊 (@abustamante) reported

    @SlackHQ When there are issues and a team isn't performing, don't change process just for the sake of changing process. If the problem is motivation or attitude, that's something you need to fix, and no kanbans or product pipelines will work.

  • MatthewHarrold Matthew Harrold (@MatthewHarrold) reported from Harrow Weald, England

    @SlackHQ It's the functionality that's the problem

  • mathewrrusso Mat Russo (@mathewrrusso) reported

    @SlackHQ Always have an open mind and there may be multiple ways to fix a problem or create a solution.

  • coco_chasnel Coco Chasnel (@coco_chasnel) reported

    @SlackHQ Don’t try to make friends or network at work. Focus on solutions to the most pressing problems, and the friendships will come naturally.

  • ddddddddesy desy (@ddddddddesy) reported

    @SlackHQ Being a perfectionist who has this urge to dominate things and ended up being a solo fighter is REALLY tiring. Trying my best hand over the roles that are not necessarily on my plate to the new hires and chill out Bc when I got sick, someone needs to take over and help me out.

  • BobMorate Bob Morate (@BobMorate) reported

    @SlackHQ If you're working in a creative team, just because it's "your idea", does not mean it's the right idea. Your team shooting down your idea does not mean they hate you. They just want to make the best possible product. Like you.

  • PremiumFrye Seasonal Frye (@PremiumFrye) reported

    @SlackHQ's kitchen sink formatting is broken. Typing in backticks doesn't always result in code format. If the spellcheck picks up a word as incorrect, it will flash the red line underneath after you correct the misspelling. Markdown is/was simple - this UX is strictly worse.

  • andreascreten Andreas Creten (@andreascreten) reported

    @SlackHQ @developerjack I am facing the same issue!

  • hanspagel hans 👀 (@hanspagel) reported

    @figmadesign @code @SlackHQ @NotionHQ We submitted the app to @BetaList ✅ Still waiting for the Electron/Catalina issue to be fixed or find a workaround.

  • ruari ruaríø (@ruari) reported

    @SlackHQ @nilicule I have actually contacted the wrong people because of this issue on several occasions. That could potentially go wildly wrong for someone. Consider for example a HR employee or Team Lead wanting discussing a private matter with the wrong employee

  • johann2357 Johann Nuñez (@johann2357) reported

    @SlackHQ @gvleobas Same here! I am in Brazil. Please @SlackHQ make a quick fix for this 🙏
