Slack Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • dvpita Gabriel Pita (@dvpita) reported from Kuta, Provinsi Bali

    @levelsio @NomadList @SlackHQ help?

  • SeanathanVT Sean Halpin (@SeanathanVT) reported

    @SlackHQ I'm not sure how long this has been an issue, but we just transitioned to Slack at work and when using Gboard in the Slack app on Android, I am unable to insert a GIF or Sticker. I receive a message stating "Slack doesn't support image insertion here".

  • wildbill Bill Childers (@wildbill) reported

    @amye @IanColdwater @SlackHQ Yeah, for sure. The problem is that Slack makes it SO damn easy to oversubscribe.

  • CahnEmily Emily C. Singer (@CahnEmily) reported

    Hey @SlackHQ, it's cool that we can link stories in slack, but why on earth do they unfurl. If I'm linking to it in text, I don't want it to unfurl. Please fix this annoyance!!!

  • capajj Capajj (@capajj) reported

    My slack 4.7.0 on Ubuntu 20.04 won't start when I run it. Is there a way to fix it @slackHQ? Tried reinstalling, did not help.

  • emflores3 Michael Flores (@emflores3) reported

    @SlackHQ my beautiful Slack bot is broken :( It appears that most (but not all) of our userIDs changed from underneath us a few days ago. Was this announced somewhere? Should we account for userIDs being non-static moving forward?

  • pelavarre Pat LaVarre (@pelavarre) reported

    @SlackHQ and if i didn't send the emoji, there is no fix? like here we react with the alias -shaka- 🤙, from Hawaii but Slack misrepresents our reactji as -call-me-hand- & it doesn't tell new people searching for -call-me-hand that it's a way to say -shaka- here bugs to me, you see?

  • gabrielp237 Gabriel 🤖 (@gabrielp237) reported

    @leonexis @SlackHQ `error: cannot revert "slack": no revision to revert to`

  • leonexis Leo Scott (@leonexis) reported

    @SlackHQ @gabrielp237 A simple 'sudo snap revert slack' should re-enable the older installed version of slack until a new fix is released. Worked for me in Ubuntu 18.04.

  • CoreyDMcCarty The Bearded Programmer (@CoreyDMcCarty) reported

    @SlackHQ Maybe you could just allow "also send to #channel" to be added in edit of a thread message. That would be awesome, and I wouldn't have to delete my messages to fix the mistake of not checking the little box every time.

  • iamInsaf Insaf Dott (@iamInsaf) reported

    @SlackHQ Am I the only one having issues with new slack in #Android? I get the notification when I open the app messages are not there the have to force close the app and open it.

  • kvirta Kalle Varisvirta (@kvirta) reported

    @istenrot @SlackHQ Well, my JPEG files seem to be immune to those problems... and it's not all PNGs, just particular ones that won't preview on Slack. Not even on the iOS client. Especially problematic are the ones I export from Lucidchart.

  • diolor Dionysis Lorentzos! (@diolor) reported

    Seriously. Is there any way or plugin in @SlackHQ to only allow messages from 2-3 colleagues to get messages from and just ignore everything else until YOU want to check those messages? Prioritizing messages on the same level of importance, is just broken.

  • Diggie - (@Diggie) reported

    @SlackHQ Your Android app is being buggy. It keeps indicating people have DM'd me (correct) but doesn't pull down/render their last message. I have to view it in the web client. After doing that the Android client may finally show it. It's happened to me a few times recently.

  • PashaGur 𝙿𝚊𝚟𝚎𝚕 𝙶𝚞𝚛𝚟𝚒𝚌𝚑 (@PashaGur) reported

    @SlackHQ I did. Twice. A fix was promised and a refund was issues. However, the problem is still there and *very* annoying!

  • colpclark Colin (@colpclark) reported

    @SlackHQ Here’s what you could have said, “have you tried clearing cache on startup?” And that would have fixed it, no privacy issues, and efficient use of time. Now, since it keeps freezing, like many people are experiencing if you know how to use google, maybe you all could fix that..

  • Jaetoh Alex (@Jaetoh) reported

    @SlackHQ Yep, okay got it! I am using the web version now, I will wait for the fix 👍

  • Meroine Meredith H-W (she/her) (@Meroine) reported

    @SlackHQ 👋🏼 first time, long time. I’m not getting the red message notifications anymore on desktop or my iPhone apps. I have notifications on, so I’m not sure what’s up? Help? 🥺

  • buckeyelisa Lisa Peterson (@buckeyelisa) reported

    @SlackHQ can you fix things so the full picture is shown in the channel message, and not a cropped one. It's annoying. Love you guys otherwise.

  • KyleLoranger Kyle Loranger (@KyleLoranger) reported

    Anyone else having issue with bullets in posts in #slack ? Type one bullet, hit shift+return and the previous bullet disappears? @SlackHQ

  • seanmalseed Sean (@seanmalseed) reported

    @jvolkman @ani_meshuval @SlackHQ Oh weird, I wonder if it's a problem with --classic apps. I don't have any others installed though.

  • satheeshwaran satheeshwaran (@satheeshwaran) reported

    @MicrosoftTeams is a bad collaboration tool. There is no way it can replace @SlackHQ . For starters, the app is very very slow to respond on a i9 MacBook pro, no way to reply to a particular message but the Android app can do it though. So many other bugs, Fix it ASAP.

  • TisRyno Ryan McEvoy (@TisRyno) reported

    @SlackHQ Same issue happens with direct download, had to find a direct download of 4.4.3 to be able to use slack again, seems to be an issue with Chrome UI according to syslog

  • TisRyno Ryan McEvoy (@TisRyno) reported

    @SlackHQ Got automatically updated to Slack Linux 4.7.0 via Snap and Slack immediately stopped working, a reinstall and reboot doesn't fix it. Can't find any guides on clearing all caches in Linux. Send help

  • MadPipeline Ovidiu-Florin Bogdan (@MadPipeline) reported

    @SlackHQ Drawing in calls does not work when the recipient of my drawing is on a mac and on a different virtual screen (full screen app) than slack (also full screen app). Is there a fix for this? besides exiting full screen?

  • vamprapp Vampr (@vamprapp) reported

    @SlackHQ we're having tremendous issues with Slack this evening. Many messages not sending and voice chat not working reliably. Is there an issue on your end or an issue with our account? Thanks

  • ErikPosthuma Erik Posthuma (@ErikPosthuma) reported

    6/ finding internal “@SlackHQ ambassadors” beyond senior management. (Top down doesn’t work)

  • santigs Santi Garcia (@santigs) reported

    @martinvars @discord @SlackHQ Much better service

  • BrianTimp Brian Timp (@BrianTimp) reported

    @guyrleech @WorldofEuc @SlackHQ Totally! And when you read errors make sure you understand them.

  • sharksNcaffeine Vik (@sharksNcaffeine) reported

    @SlackHQ Since your July 2nd 'back-end' update, we're not getting call notifications or sounds on our desktop installations. Changing settings We can't be the only people having this problem? It's hugely frustrating when everyone is missing calls. Help please.
