  • siracusa John Siracusa (@siracusa) reported

    @SlackHQ I'm using Google Authenticator. The broken barcode image in on the "Change Two-Factor Authentication App" web page at <myslack> It should show a QR code and not a broken image icon.

  • bdubbs311 Reba Walkah (@bdubbs311) reported

    @SlackHQ Hi! One of my private channels is bolded even though no one has said anything new and it's driving me nuts! Is there a way to fix that? It's the only channel that's bolded.

  • corexian Daniel Lawson (@corexian) reported

    @gilzow @SlackHQ @MicrosoftTeams Agreed. It has been an improvement over Skype for Business though. That was terrible.

  • DenysStroebel Denys Stroebel (@DenysStroebel) reported

    @SlackHQ How much begging do you require to fix it?

  • DavidAult David Ault (@DavidAult) reported

    @x86_64 @SlackHQ Yes, that turned out to be the problem. Firefox had already stored 2GB of data and had decided not to allow any more...

  • x86_64 🐿️🐿️🐿️🐿️🐿️🐿️🐿️🐿️🐿️ (@x86_64) reported

    @SlackHQ @DavidAult Hi, there. Try Private Window-- it worked on my Firefox on Windows. I suspect that the cookies were messed up in the update, so it could be Firefox's fault. If Private Window works for you, I suggest you remove your cookies for your Slack workspace. Note: Re-login required.

  • notmatt Matt SCREAMY (@notmatt) reported

    @rakyll Not working at the moment, but I can tell you that this sort of office hours would have had a number of fans (including me) at @SlackHQ while I was there, especially around better understanding the networking situation. :)

  • KitsuAMS Pavel Kitsu (@KitsuAMS) reported

    Hey devs @SlackHQ Is there any way to disable the profile pictures and getting back my lovely dots? I mean, it's distracting as hell, i can't see who's snoozed easilly (as it blends with a plenty of profile picture backgroungs) and in general, it looks terrible. #WeWantOptions

  • jeffbigham Rogue P. Bigham (@jeffbigham) reported

    @da_lind @discord @SlackHQ yes! can't use those broken alternatives.

  • TheCre8tiveDiva Anita C. (@TheCre8tiveDiva) reported

    @SlackHQ That's the issue. They do not have that in their preferences, but we do.

  • da_lind David Lindlbauer (@da_lind) reported

    @jeffbigham @discord @SlackHQ Although we might shut down the server after UIST. No threads is annoying for regular conversations. But we will write reports on that.

  • gyozafiend gyozafiend (@gyozafiend) reported

    @SlackHQ what in gods name did you guys do to your typeface??? Its so hard to read. Sweet jesus help us.

  • anticonsultant Thomas Richardson (@anticonsultant) reported

    @SlackHQ You can fix broken notifications in iOS badges. A number appears in the badge, there is no message because it has already been viewed. It's a huge known issue and is a major pain for loyal users.

  • ArtemR Artem Russakovskii (@ArtemR) reported

    @SlackHQ Suggestions to help minimize distractions and offtopic chatter: 1) Can admins get an ability to easily transplant multiple lines of an existing conversation to another channel? 2) Alternatively, fold such lines into a thread, after the fact. These would be 🤌 🤌 🤌.

  • mariodarnadi Mario Darnadi (@mariodarnadi) reported

    @SlackHQ @paulwrblanchard Yeah thats the problem. Paid

  • _brianclifton Brian Clifton (@_brianclifton) reported

    @SlackHQ is there a known issue where you can't edit messages? It's been like this for about a full day, definitely annoying. I'm on Windows - have tried re-installing Slack, rebooting, etc.

  • yuvilio yuvilio (@yuvilio) reported

    @alexch @SlackHQ That looks more like a tip to users to prefix their channels to help grouping/finding rather than claiming a new feature invention

  • IAmSixFootFour i am six foot four (@IAmSixFootFour) reported

    @SlackStatus @SlackHQ having issues expanding and collapsing in the sidebar. Also causing issues accessing messages since I can't expand or collapse. Happened the other day when yall were having issues

  • Jaydeep_W Jaydeep (@Jaydeep_W) reported

    @SlackHQ is probably the shittiest application I use everyday. It gets broken so many times, sometimes sign in just doesn't work. The world is skewed. **** products go great heights.

  • LynxMimic MimicLynx (@LynxMimic) reported

    @humanhacker @SlackHQ Still needs a link fix please

  • alterisian Ian // How Can I Help? (@alterisian) reported

    @SlackHQ It's been like it for years. I don't think you'll fix it. Would require a redesign of sign up experience to accommodate most people having multiple slacks. And slacks becoming useless at that point. Could have said it was a problem of being successful two years ago, but now???

  • rosavanwyk rosavanwyk (@rosavanwyk) reported

    Hey @SlackHQ our entire team account just completely disappeared – like it doesn't exist! 😱 #slack #help

  • tianhao_au Tianhao🏠😷 (@tianhao_au) reported

    @SlackHQ Thank you to bring back my favourite cmd + K to check unread channel message without clicking down arrow key.

  • michaelkkehoe Michael Kehoe (@michaelkkehoe) reported

    @SlackHQ Had this issue for months after a Slack UI change a few months back.

  • jynxzero jynxzero (@jynxzero) reported

    If you do a :fistbump: reaction in #Slack the hover-text you get when mousing over the icon is :facepunch: In other words, I was not nearly as friendly as I intended in my work support channel today. Hope that @SlackHQ are going to send someone to help me explain this to HR.

  • hootlex Alex Kyriakidis (@hootlex) reported

    @davorminchorov That seems to be the problem for most people. @SlackHQ is this something you're working on?

  • AshBerlin Ash Berlin-Taylor (@AshBerlin) reported

    @slackhq You appear to have broken guest (email+password) accounts when the main workspace has force SSO logins - it keeps telling me I have to log in via SSO. But the whole reason I'm a guest is I don't have an account in the SSO. This is possibly because I have a lapsed invite

  • alterisian Ian // How Can I Help? (@alterisian) reported

    @TOABerlin @iamcal @SlackHQ Should be interesting. Would love to ask the question over why they've never addressed the multi-slack ux issues...

  • biglovisa Lovisa (@biglovisa) reported

    @SlackHQ Hi! No error messages but as soon as I mark it unread (option + click on the message time) it immediately toggles to read again. I'm on mac desktop.

  • therealgonmun Gonmun (@therealgonmun) reported

    @SlackHQ Sorry for the delay. It was giving a white screen after logging in then kicking me back to the login screen after about 20 to 30 seconds. I was able to uninstall and reinstall and that seems to have corrected it but it now. Thank you for checking in.
