Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • CahlDee Carl DiClementi (@CahlDee) reported

    @SlackHQ This seems true in theory, but in practice it doesn't work out. Everything of value in the channels is mixed in with irrelevant chatter and impossible to find. Fix this issue, Slack, and you'll beat out Microsoft.

  • abdsofika sofia abdurakhmanova (@abdsofika) reported

    @SlackHQ hi! I've got some troubles while sharing my screen, so the person I talk to can see slack window only, not other windows like chrome tabs etc. Can't figure out what's the problem. It's Mac, paid version. thanks

  • Zambotron David Gabriel (@Zambotron) reported

    Yes, @SlackHQ forces you to be always online and it’s terrible for concentration. Orgs should have clear policies on when to use it and what to expect about it.

  • GaelForget Gael Forget (@GaelForget) reported

    I never could deal with it ... @SlackHQ and @github help for me

  • maxbridgland ‌‌‌‌ً (@maxbridgland) reported

    @Mighel88 @SlackHQ No problem, just pushed the update with this :)

  • fffabs ⤷ fabio ⤶ (@fffabs) reported

    @SlackHQ Definitely connection issues, messages are not delivered or are delayed and delivered in the wrong order.

  • fffabs ⤷ fabio ⤶ (@fffabs) reported

    For a $200 a month service, @SlackHQ downtimes are pretty unacceptable.

  • koblas david koblas (@koblas) reported

    @SlackHQ Here's a workflow: 1) A developer writes a quick message (read it, need to respond) 2) Support escalates an issue, read it start investigating 3) CEO Drops a note, need to respond 4) Another developer drops a note (unread) ...continued

  • Cholectu Chol Bunnag (@Cholectu) reported from Ban Bang Khan, Changwat Pathum Thani

    @SlackHQ I use iOsS and have no problem. But almost all of my team who use android phone, Slack did not notify them at all even when they were mentioned. I don’t know what is going on but it is so problematic and start to cause problems at work now.

  • DoomChild2 Doom-Child (@DoomChild2) reported

    @SlackHQ I just want to turn the damn thing off. God help me if I enter the netherworld of auto-formatted editing, because getting out of it basically requires deleting the entire message and starting over.

  • MikeOghia Michael J. Oghia (@MikeOghia) reported

    @SlackHQ Thanks for replying! I don't have access to a third-party gif service on desktop (only mobile). But was thinking of something like Tenor integration. RE: link copying/quoting, I find that a bit clunky (no offense). I often just copy/paste a message, add quotes, and reply.b

  • DomNicastro Dom Nicastro (@DomNicastro) reported

    @bamartin92 @SlackHQ @Facebook I'm telling ya, it gets intense. My eyes keep turning away from the laptop. Can't help it.

  • snootgirl chee (@snootgirl) reported

    @SlackHQ hey, i need to delete a private channel that's stolen a name i need for a public channel. please help, i know several admins personally

  • liorus Lior Neudorfer (@liorus) reported

    Hey @SlackHQ , the newest Windows client is slightly broken - in some cases when I scroll up in a channel and hover above some messages, they're erased from the screen.

  • MisterGlass Mr. Glass (@MisterGlass) reported

    @SlackHQ No problem! Glad to hear it's being fixed.

  • DinisCruz Dinis Cruz (@DinisCruz) reported

    Request: If you know Devs or Product owners at @SlackHQ please show them the video below This missing feature is REALLY a massive problem when using Slack for ChatOps and as CLI

  • craiganssle Craig Ganssle (@craiganssle) reported from Sinop, Mato Grosso

    Twitter is so popular as a social media network today that people will cram content into multiple tweets to convey their message thus making the most broken form of communication. Reminds me of @SlackHQ versus @basecamp at work...

  • nod Jeremy (@nod) reported

    Dear @SlackHQ - your recent changes to moving away from RTM connections for new style integrations is a colossal mistake from an enterprise standpoint. Requiring the event api is bad. Enterprise users face huge hurdles on getting a service exposed (continued)

  • Andy_Tattersall Andy Tattersall (@Andy_Tattersall) reported

    @Ju_B81 There are plenty out there - certainly look at @SlackHQ @trello @huddle obviously consider all of the information governance issues when working across sites

  • _mjpitz_ Mya Pitzeruse (@_mjpitz_) reported

    @dbsmasher @SlackHQ I've had similar issues with text replaced emoji

  • voxkev kevin collins 🎹 (@voxkev) reported

    @SlackHQ Still broken after a new update.

  • brendon9x brendon9x (@brendon9x) reported

    Seems only fair after moaning about the ongoing fallout of @slackhq wysiwyg editor, that I praise their support. Received a link to beta version with fixed issue within hours. Impressive

  • andrewlinfoot Andrew Linfoot (@andrewlinfoot) reported

    @finbarr @eladgil @NotionHQ @clubhouse @SlackHQ @zoom_us @InVisionApp @intercom @FrontApp Agreed. Having the same problem with our Notion but don’t know a better alternative

  • arcreativenet Adam Robertson (@arcreativenet) reported

    @SlackHQ please please please pleeeease change this default iOS behavior of “sticky badges” off like it used to be. It’s absolutely inane to continue to have a badge for something you know I read and responded to. 20+ times a day this is a problem for me.

  • vzaliva Vadim Zaliva (@vzaliva) reported

    @SlackHQ does not care about people with poor vision. Max zoom size in their Linux client is arbitrarily limited to 150%. If you have poor vision and suffer from this limitation contact me. Maybe we need ADA action to convince them to fix it.

  • mybizdoc DidNaziPutinTrumpinJail (@mybizdoc) reported

    @SlackHQ @sondy Guys, you need to fix this. There are people abandoning your platform.

  • Manjit_Barnala Manjit Singh (@Manjit_Barnala) reported

    @SlackHQ Is there anyway to delete slackbot automated messages. I have set those up but i dont need those messages now. Can you help me with this. FYI - I am not an admin of the workspace.

  • JenChere Benevolent Troublemaker (@JenChere) reported

    @datahowler @SlackHQ It also seems to have broken something in the Android Slack app. I don't see the editor and only some of the markdown works some of the time. No > indents. 😪

  • yuribrigadir Yuri Brigadir (@yuribrigadir) reported

    @thoughtbar_ @SlackHQ There's Microsoft Teams, which is pretty much watered-down Slack for enterprises

  • mnot Mark Nottingham (@mnot) reported

    @SlackHQ I understand, but the problem is the expectation it forms in *their* mind -- that I shouldn't be bothering them because I "should have known."

  • joytrek Susan Farrell (@joytrek) reported

    @SlackHQ Confusing: "Browse Channels" then "All channels" at the top, then in tiny gray font about 50 channels down "Channels you belong to". It would be great if "Channels you belong to / Channels you can join" were filters in the "Show" menu. (Or make those headings big, bold, visible.)

  • CodyBonnar Cody Bonnar (@CodyBonnar) reported

    @sboots @SlackHQ Sentence case. Hands down.

  • swrobel Stefan Wrobel 🏄🏼 (@swrobel) reported

    @SlackHQ @thechrisifixion Yet another vote for fixing this above all other issues. This is so annoying. The number of times I launch the phone app daily just to clear that stupid badge...

  • ashishnagar Ashish Nagar (@ashishnagar) reported

    @SlackHQ 2/2 At @TheLevelAI we just don't communicate on it, but: 1. Give product feedback 2. Answer on-boarding questions 3. Discuss team issues All this is valuable historical content for the organization which we would never give up for a new platform even it was free.

  • nadworks Nadja von Massow 🕷️ 🇪🇺 #FBPE (@nadworks) reported

    @svenslab @SlackHQ I see your point. However, imo that's a problem which needs to be addressed between people, teams, etc. not by technology. It's a cultural issue.

  • miskahamilton Mike Hamilton (@miskahamilton) reported

    Gotta miss the early days of a startup, where your only problem is that your @SlackHQ post in #engineering wasn’t related to engineering.

  • ryanfraase Ryan Fraase (@ryanfraase) reported

    @SlackHQ tomorrow will be six weeks with still no fix for this issue...

  • JiFish Joseph Fowler (@JiFish) reported

    @SlackHQ Six months later... still no option to switch this feature off or a fix for the horrible UX of having your channels move position. I've just got used to never, ever leaving a draft in.

  • Storakatten Alexandra de Wit 🏴🏳️‍⚧️ (@Storakatten) reported

    @pitopos @SlackHQ Because that's an HR problem 😠🤮😠🙄😠🤮🤮🦉🦉🦉🦉

  • madsewins Maddy Ewins (@madsewins) reported

    TIL @slack is not @slackHQ. Sorry @slack 😅 congrats on holding down that handle.

  • orenjacob Oren Jacob (@orenjacob) reported from Santa Clara, California

    @far33d @davidu @SlackHQ @Superhuman I know a good way to fix this problem...

  • mattchewone Matt Chaffe (@mattchewone) reported

    Damn why does @SlackHQ crash everytime I try to correct my terrible spelling!!

  • alliegracehall Allie Grace Hall (@alliegracehall) reported

    Hey @SlackHQ my Threads channel is stuck like I have an unread message. I have tried restarting Slack but nothing makes it go away and it's super distracting. Help!

  • outrorenan Renan (@outrorenan) reported

    @SlackHQ @pcasaretto This is still happening. Changing the timezone to Buenos Aires doesn't seem to fix it for me. I'm using the latest version of the MacOS app.

  • ShahidWorking Shahid (@ShahidWorking) reported

    @SlackHQ Inexplicably, the issue is no longer happening (there is no HSTS error and page redirects to the desired DM screen in slack. So case closed as of now.

  • MyTakeOnIt Jeremy Angoff (@MyTakeOnIt) reported

    @SlackHQ @verizonfios I’m having some odd connectivity problems at home this AM. Internet seems fine & Slack seems fine EXCEPT when I try to connect to Slack over FiOS. When I am on FiOS, Slack appears “down” (web and app). Using cellular Slack works. All other sites seem fine

  • lipmanb Brandon Lipman (@lipmanb) reported

    @SlackHQ Hi Slack Team - Consistent bug discovered. When I right-click on a composed draft message on desktop macOS the app shuts down.

  • jdale88 Jamie Dale (@jdale88) reported

    @SlackHQ Your latest Android update seems to have broken some markdown. So far I've noticed code blocks (with ```) and block quotes (with >) no longer work.

  • jmickela Jason Mickela (@jmickela) reported

    @SlackHQ It's just wordplay. Slack-off....get it, you're both not working (thus slacking off), and turning off slack notifications.

  • qwrrty Tim Pierce (@qwrrty) reported

    Historically, @SlackHQ has rejected the idea of a block button, on the grounds that their mission is to help people connect with each other, and not to keep them apart. And I can respect that. But I don’t think it’s quite right.

  • CalebLJenkins Caleb L. Jenkins, EA, CQP (@CalebLJenkins) reported

    @SlackHQ @Ronef I understand your privacy concerns about the risk of making private stuff public. So, what about allowing an Admin to request the private channel to convert to a public channel and everyone who had messages there "approve" the request. That would alleviate the privacy issue.

  • ehrlicp Peter Ehrlich (@ehrlicp) reported

    @SlackHQ Hi I think certain channels might be down for my org's slack. I get "cannot send message" persistently on desktop, mobile, and web. Also trouble joining and notifications for my own messages on DMs when switching clients.

  • laurentdelrey 𝔏aurent 𝔇el ℜey (@laurentdelrey) reported

    @SlackHQ Just checked. The app is up-to-date but it doesn't work yet. Let me know if I can help!

  • matthewmccull Matthew J McCullough (@matthewmccull) reported

    @SlackHQ Bug report: The @channel keyword seems to be broken in private channels on mobile (via @nathos ). Works via the desktop client.

  • ShahidWorking Shahid (@ShahidWorking) reported

    @SlackHQ Of course, I did replace the [...] with the actual workspace name (and username with my actual username). The resulting URL is valid and ssl handshake is initiated correctly. That's where the HSTS error pops in because the site certificate CM does not contain <my-workspace-name>.

  • bjornwang Bjørn Wang (@bjornwang) reported

    @SlackHQ @bshacklett Same issue here. Office365 and Outlook. Email appears instantly but following the link will tell me it’s already used. Thinking maybe the anti virus protection will follow the link before showing the email in my inbox.

  • heymosef Mohammed Asaduallah (@heymosef) reported

    @SlackHQ Yes, I understand I have to do it manually one by one. That’s the issue I’m raising. A global do not disturb mode would be super helpful. Even with my mac’s DND turned on, I still hear Slacks notification sounds.

  • avideitcher Avi Deitcher (@avideitcher) reported

    @SlackHQ Oops. Obstructing, regular pop-up that is not cannot be disabled is not great UX. Please do get a fix in.

  • briceleroy Brice Leroy (@briceleroy) reported

    @SlackHQ Please make the WYSIWYG optional, the input text field is completely broken when it comes to Markdown. It's just got worse this morning and I can't modify my text to format it 🤬

  • valera_zakharov Valera Zakharov (@valera_zakharov) reported

    @SheepMachine @SlackHQ One of them said - "trivial E2E test changes require additional reviewers, which slows things down". We have, since removed that requirement. The other one did not elaborate.
