Slack Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • ParallelThreads Amit (@ParallelThreads) reported

    @SlackHQ latest update on Mac mojave breaks finding people using @ from within a direct message. @ gives me the entire list but as soon as I type the next 2 letters the list is gone and it never comes up. Lil annoying, appreciate a fix!

  • richtwood Richard Wood (@richtwood) reported from Manchester, England

    @michmybellle @SlackHQ Of all the SaaS company rebrands in the last few years... theirs hands down got the worst reception... it was brutal there for a couple of days!

  • AdrianwithaW Adrian with a W (@AdrianwithaW) reported

    @rafaelmagu @SlackHQ I've been losing notifications left, right and centre. Even searching to:@ adrian doesn't return a chat that I'm clearly mentioned in. Broken AF.

  • rafaelmagu Rafael Fonseca (@rafaelmagu) reported

    Again lost track of a conversation I spotted in @SlackHQ because of the broken back-track shortcuts. Per-workspace back-tracking worked perfectly. This new cross-workspace system is terribad.

  • SpaceDucK77 Marko Petrovic (@SpaceDucK77) reported

    @SlackHQ Thank you, I was able to achieve the intended outcome. In general your interfaces are frustratingly unintuitive. Including, but not limited to, the lack of a general master login for an email address

  • mmaunder Mark Maunder. (@mmaunder) reported

    @SlackHQ Tried it. Didn't fix it. Thanks for the suggestion though.

  • mmaunder Mark Maunder. (@mmaunder) reported

    @SlackHQ We don't have that situation and I'm seeing this on every username no matter who it is. It's slowing down workflow because I have to take my hands off the keyboard and move the mouse to click on the username. Confirmed I'm on latest version and have restarted Slack.

  • johnsmclay M. Clay Johns (@johnsmclay) reported

    @FilkAmy @SlackHQ It's not hard. Slack just doesn't care. They don't see/have the problem in their workplace, so they assume it doesn't happen in any other workplace. They operate like @Apple in that they assume "you're using it wrong" and that it's not a real problem.

  • eloquent_vogon eloquent_vogon (@eloquent_vogon) reported

    @SlackHQ is broken, I have no one to talk to .... hellloooooooooooo

  • JvdMeulen JvdMeulen (@JvdMeulen) reported

    @SlackHQ no problem, i just wished it was already on the todo list ;-)

  • davesmits Dave Smits (@davesmits) reported

    @SlackHQ just before sending the logs i did reproduce the problem as it's a 100% hit. shouldn't be too hard to find something

  • connolly_s Stephen Connolly 🚳 (@connolly_s) reported

    @SlackHQ It means I can just read down to get (mostly) chronologically... an active thread on an old message will still accumulate unread messages. Thinking more, it would pull in messages that I have seen but now have unread threads

  • ShanJeniah Shan Jeniah Burton (@ShanJeniah) reported

    @SlackHQ What would be hugely useful would be adding an autosave and/or Undo feature, so that this kind of error could be easily corrected. It's getting to the point where I'm a bit afraid to put my checklist on Slack, and that isn't helpful.

  • ShanJeniah Shan Jeniah Burton (@ShanJeniah) reported

    @SlackHQ PLEASE fix the glitch that erases entire posts before the point at which one hits backspace! Our team is of writers and freelancers is getting frustrated at watching our personal work history for a day get deleted this way. We work hard on our checklists. #Help!

  • benlikestocode Ben Oberkfell (@benlikestocode) reported

    Somehow @slackhq being down altogether is less annoying than when Slack must be having some distributed systems fart and refusing to let you DM or mention certain randomly selected people in your workspace

  • tbjork Thomas Björklund (@tbjork) reported

    @SlackHQ Looks like a google issue. All good

  • guyrleech Guy Leech (@guyrleech) reported

    @rickd4real @RemkoWeijnen @SlackHQ There was/is a known issue with multiple monitors I was told when I reported frequent crashes and/or high CPU on resume from hibernate but not had to kill it for a while now & I hibernate/resume laptop daily

  • monsieurBoutte Victor Boutté (@monsieurBoutte) reported

    hey @SlackHQ can you fix your cmd + [ shortcut 😅 I don't want to cycle between work spaces

  • joseeephb Broseph (@joseeephb) reported

    @SlackHQ I’ve got a message that failed to send from my iPhone in a Slack chat and when I hold down and press delete it doesn’t do anything to the message - help!

  • mrloo 🍕Mark William Lewis (@mrloo) reported

    @ashwindeshmukh @SlackHQ @mondaydotcom I'll just monday you to talk more about this issue.

  • VsRyskaHacker Vänsterns Ryska Hacker (@VsRyskaHacker) reported

    @SlackHQ Sent, email subject: Error Embed button Links. Just replace all the script specific logic with a static network drive link pointing to an HTML file in json_dumpelino and try :) and also, please use your own bot credentials 🙊

  • drcongo Andy Beaumont 🚩🏴‍☠️ (@drcongo) reported

    So, @SlackHQ, you know that “Drafts” feature that everyone hates, if you use Alt+Down to switch to a new channel while composing a message, the fact the channel you were in moves means you can’t Alt+Up to go back to it.

  • idnorton Ian Norton (@idnorton) reported

    @cpan_pevans @SlackHQ It's the invisibility of them that's the biggest issue. I'll take @telegram replies over @SlackHQ threads any day.

  • nanotek911 Victor Csiky (@nanotek911) reported

    @skyzyx @1Password @SlackHQ Nah; I wouldn't ever think one should "leave anyone behind" ever. Instead, responsible minds should rethink this cloud-and-shit-as-a-service craze.

  • tukkajukka Jukka Tupamäki (@tukkajukka) reported

    @SlackHQ Thanks. I'll open a ticket if the problem does not go away soon.

  • cpan_pevans Paul Evans (@cpan_pevans) reported

    @idnorton @SlackHQ They are pretty terrible

  • venzann Dave Dustin (@venzann) reported

    @Firesphere @SlackHQ Oooooooohhhhh!!!! Now there's an idea. Throw things into a queue and the service posts them as required.

  • HiItsBrant Brant (@HiItsBrant) reported

    @SlackHQ I'm getting "Hmm, something went wrong." as an error when I try to save my settings for my JIRA Server integration. I just want to know what that something is so I know how to fix it :(

  • foxdan Dan Fox (@foxdan) reported

    @SlackHQ Example triggering a bot: $trigger do_something with these argd Turns out there's a typo there when the bot responds and I meant 'args'. Rather than a simple up and fix the msg now I've to copy/paste or retype.

  • mediumpauly Paul Seidler (@mediumpauly) reported

    Just spent the last 30 min cleaning out my inbox (no, not to zero.. settle down) and unsubscribing from time-wasting newsletters. All notifications turned off (even you, @Twitter, and especially you, @SlackHQ). 1 week vacation begins.... NOW!

  • ourSERVICEBRAND Alan Williams (@ourSERVICEBRAND) reported

    @SusanDavid_PhD @MagmaEffect @SlackHQ A company’s success is no more than the success of the employees representing it. #values driven service for sustained performance

  • clayanderson Clay Anderson (@clayanderson) reported

    @SlackHQ My biggest persistent complaint (for myself and many others) is the tendency for the Slack Windows app to crash when docking/undocking. This has been a problem for months, and we've been told repeatedly "we're working on it."

  • MeaghsNKeaghs Meaghs (@MeaghsNKeaghs) reported

    @SlackHQ I'm so beyond impressed with your customer service! My team and I wouldn't be able to function without you! I emailed a suggestion and 2hrs later I got a customized personal response back! No AI Robots! Thank you! #FridayThoughts

  • MVPJunkie MVPJ (@MVPJunkie) reported

    @SlackHQ @janjadud Slack user here. It came to our attention in the office that we can't upload multiple files at once consecutively while holding SHIFT, without making it into an album. Can you fix this, please, thanks!

  • LacaXhakaa Bharat (@LacaXhakaa) reported

    @Mr_Sanghvi @SlackHQ They keep losing money every year. Stock has been down since their IPO. Desperate times, desperate measures.

  • FlyanRoyd Ryan (@FlyanRoyd) reported

    @SlackHQ Only “issue” is that I’m on Do Not Disturb. I’m receiving DM notifications to my device like normal, but the Slack icon at the top-left does not show me that I have unread DMs like it used to.

  • fakecarlsagan 100% Star Stuff (@fakecarlsagan) reported

    @cpeterso @michielsikma @chordbug @SlackHQ I was being sarcastic. It’s a terrible idea.

  • donweigel Don Weigel (@donweigel) reported

    @SlackHQ No problem, slack rules.

  • daiyitastic daiyi! ✨ (chris) (@daiyitastic) reported

    hey @SlackHQ there's been a bug on web where I am shown "who is currently typing" notifications EVEN THOUGH I have that disabled in settings. I've cleared the cache/cookies to no avail. please help, the typing notifications give me anxiety, but I need to use slack for my job

  • dathanvp Dathan Pattishall (@dathanvp) reported

    I dislike only a few things @SlackHQ. The @ here feature is my number one gripe. It's so annoying getting message notifications, but to get them for messages you can't help with super annoying.

  • NoahBornstein Noah Bornstein (@NoahBornstein) reported

    @AKGreenberg @SlackHQ To clarify, that’s MacOSX DND, not Slack’s DND. I’ve had this issue for a few weeks now, where Slack still makes noise, even though the notifications don’t show.

  • AKGreenberg Amanda K. Greenberg (@AKGreenberg) reported

    Hey @SlackHQ - Have DND on and keep getting noise notifications from Slack. Been happening the last few days and now happening to other team members. Help, help, help!

  • JohnsonOnyero Onyero Johnson (@JohnsonOnyero) reported

    @SlackHQ .hello.please i am finding it difficult to log in and comment.please help

  • ericknopf Eric Knopf (@ericknopf) reported

    @SlackHQ Figured you would know. :) No problem. I will watch for an update, but you better have the same pithy / cheeky release notes or I am going to raise hell.

  • tpickelhaupt Trish Pickelhaupt (@tpickelhaupt) reported

    @sophiasipstea @SlackHQ hahahah . yes. # help #me

  • tgambee Tony Gambee (@tgambee) reported

    @SlackHQ For one, I would like to move up and down the left list pre/next convo and only stop on the unreads.

  • multikev Kevin Cannon (@multikev) reported

    @SlackHQ Having the "(edited)" thing is nice, but often I spot and fix a mistake within 10 seconds of sending a message, and the "edited" label just fills me with shame. Maybe if it's a small change with 10 seconds you might consider not showing it 🙏

  • sharoz Steve Haroz 📊👁️🧠 (@sharoz) reported

    Come on @SlackHQ. If a message fails to post because of internet issues, just post it as soon as the connection works again.

  • pellyg Greg P (@pellyg) reported

    @mari4ju @SlackHQ Now that I'm at a heavily regulated company with locked down slack settings, I understand the case for admin features in a way that I couldn't imagine when I was at @slackhq. (AMA)

  • sgmyid sgmyid (@sgmyid) reported

    @SlackHQ search seems to be having an issue.

  • OhNoItsFusl Fusl 🏳️‍🌈🦊 (@OhNoItsFusl) reported

    @SlackHQ Looks like there's an issue where clicking the paperclip icon and then selecting "Create new..." -> "Post" will log you out of Slack. This has been confirmed to be an issue all over our workspace and some people aren't able to log in afterwards without clearing cookies.

  • Virishii sam mazer (@Virishii) reported

    @SlackHQ Ended up being a mac issue, was just seeing it on Slack. Thanks for the reply!

  • aloukissas Alex Loukissas (@aloukissas) reported

    @HarryStebbings @SlackHQ @NotionHQ @airtable @zoom_us Productivity-first variant of Slack (not an ASAP-focused distraction machine). Hard problem. @derrickreimer tried to do this with Level.

  • MediaSnarking Media snark (@MediaSnarking) reported

    @SameerPatel @SlackHQ Heaven forbid they actually make product that much more useful w/ those billions in cash instead of focusing on hypergrowth. Better to slow things down just a bit & make your existing customers much happier. Slack got lucky — others, not so much in taking user base for granted.

  • sasope sonia peterson (@sasope) reported

    @HarryStebbings @SlackHQ @NotionHQ @airtable @zoom_us Remote working brings the problem of quicker burnout for many. No community, socialization.
