Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • JayB4 Jay (@JayB4) reported

    @SlackHQ The desktop app sets you away after 10 minutes of inactivity? Awful. Why is that not a user controlled setting? I have never had this issue before 2 weeks ago. What if I am on a call and not active on my laptop? I'm not away and would immediate answer. That needs to change ASAP

  • drbrain Eric Hodel (@drbrain) reported from Seattle, Washington

    @SlackHQ Yes, on MacOS: Version 4.12.2 4a54a6f-s@1611185173 (App Store) Clear Cache and Exit exists, but doesn’t help Try setting your window size to 450px tall, the minimum height also works

  • JeffCFHo Jeff C. Ho (@JeffCFHo) reported

    @jacknotjohn @SlackHQ You can highlight the text and just hit paste! Instead of overwriting the text it will turn it into a hyperlink! Although that does make it the opposite of everywhere else (and terrible for muscle memory)...

  • CaseyStanton Casey Stanton (@CaseyStanton) reported

    @SlackHQ #help Having an edge-case issue. I am an admin for a Slack org. I was invited to a channel on a diff Slack org. They require 2FA. I'm being asked for my pw but my pw isn't being accepted. No "reset" link. Pw works for my Slack. How can I accept their invite?

  • intlcarly Carly Ortiz-Lytle (@intlcarly) reported

    @SlackHQ looks like link previews are down.

  • mrbrownjeremy Jeremy Brown (@mrbrownjeremy) reported from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

    @SlackHQ Ah I see. I adjusted all workspaces and restarted—initially this didn’t work, but after some amount of time the badge disappeared! Thank you for your help!

  • ankurtulsian Ankur 🇮🇳🇦🇪 (@ankurtulsian) reported

    Ok, can @SlackHQ fix the text description for their smileys. Why do you have to keep a different set than normal?

  • realMauroPiazza Mauro Piazza (@realMauroPiazza) reported

    @SlackHQ Sorry to have bothered you, false alarm, was having general network issues at home

  • RajeevCinema Rajeev Gupta (@RajeevCinema) reported

    @SlackHQ But if I copy a workflow, why does the icon also not get copied? I have to update the icon of workflow every time. That is not nice. Please help @SlackHQ

  • EliottTeiss Eliott (@EliottTeiss) reported

    @SubsocialChain Main issue is that they have to write where their audience is. And for now it is mostly there. Pretty funny how we all use @GoogleWorkspace and @SlackHQ as well.

  • DebateLover Grishma Jena (@DebateLover) reported

    @SlackHQ Hi, I tried that (which is how I got my reminder to work a few months ago) but now I get this error: Slackbot I’m sorry! I can’t find that channel.

  • retornam Raymond Etornam (@retornam) reported

    .@SlackHQ looks like linking to Github snippets /code line numbers is broken in Version 4.12.0 1aa1f2a-s@1610736680 (Production).

  • rmward Robyn Ward (@rmward) reported

    @SlackHQ how do I reorder my channels. 10 and 11 appear before 1 instead of after 9. Help?!

  • matt____taylor Matthew Taylor (@matt____taylor) reported

    Be awesome if @SlackHQ could go one whole week without an outage

  • RajeevCinema Rajeev Gupta (@RajeevCinema) reported

    @SlackHQ What about workflow builder? Could that help?

  • davepermen davepermen (@davepermen) reported

    hey @SlackHQ when ever i change a laptop from docked to undocked, or have a pc locked while someone else works on it, your app freezes completely. have to kill it and open it again. noticed since quite a while. your electron host is broken, i guess.

  • gelito Ángel Luis Quesada (@gelito) reported

    I'm in love with @slackhq, I pay for this service, but I think is a so bad mkt strategy that both organizations have to have the premium account to share a channel... If you change for just one of them, then this client automatically converts to a referer.

  • shajra Sukant Hajra (@shajra) reported

    @Blaisorblade @SlackHQ I think you're right... until there are exceptions to what you just said. What you said is certainly true for copy/paste bindings. But beyond that, it's just a mess. Even with your suggestion. It will fix on thing, and then break another.

  • MisterSqueek Bill Woodland (@MisterSqueek) reported

    Dear @SlackHQ Your app is plain white with no border except for the title bar at the top. I have problems with contrast, and without borders, I can't tell where your app ends and some other window begins. If you really care about accessibility, please fix this.

  • HandlerWagner Alex H. Wagner (@HandlerWagner) reported

    A minor irritation of mine: To create a hyperlink (in OS X): • Google Docs: cmd + K • Microsoft Word: cmd + K • @Outlook: cmd + ctrl + K • @SlackHQ: cmd + shift + U WTF. Docs and Word can agree on this, but another major Microsoft product and a major IM service can't? 1/2

  • Ninafromthebook Nina (@Ninafromthebook) reported

    @SlackHQ Thanks team, it was not working on my laptop or my phone but was fixed in about an hour 👍🏻

  • johnsw John Williams (@johnsw) reported

    @SlackHQ Ok thanks. Will try. Couldn’t find mention of this in Slack help pages

  • HackerEarth HackerEarth (@HackerEarth) reported

    @hnshah @SlackHQ Started using the 'call' feature on Slack for short conversations. As a result, smaller issues that need a screen share / conversation move along much quicker.

  • anthonybassey_ Anthony (@anthonybassey_) reported

    Is Slack down? 😰 @SlackHQ

  • iRameswar Rameswar Prasad (@iRameswar) reported

    @SlackHQ I'm on the mac app actively discussing with someone and each message from the person sends a push notification to my iPhone. How to fix this?

  • Jess22932024 Jess (@Jess22932024) reported

    What’s the best team messaging service for smaller companies? @SlackHQ any better than using #WhatsApp etc? Conscious of trying to maintain better boundaries and well-being in the ‘workplace’ and want to tighten up on purpose and use of threads. Any recommendations or advice?

  • ColinBirbee Colin (@ColinBirbee) reported

    @IoanPopovici Well #MicrosoftTeams just Electron app, which is basically a web app, and in my experience it's terrible and really slow. Where as @SlackHQ is a properly written messenger, and much better than Teams.

  • Mallowigi Mallowigi (@Mallowigi) reported

    @SlackHQ Just restarted slack and the issue is gone. Maybe you rolled back to a previous version in some of the workspaces? It looked like an older version with pasting images opening a modal and such.

  • ExtropicCrusade Extropic Crusader (BLM. Period.) (@ExtropicCrusade) reported

    Hey @SlackHQ - I'd happily pay for slack if I could afford it, but for my personal proposes, I can't. I set it up to help my friends coordinate while phone banking, and it's grown a but since then, though not much. But at 15 people/month, it's way out of my budget. 😔

  • Marcos72633981 Marcos (@Marcos72633981) reported

    @Logitech @SlackHQ hey! @LogitechG i bought the g502 about may 1st of last year and the left click is already busted from normal use is there any way i can get a return? love the mouse and response to gameplay its really a great product but since the problem showed up its gotten harder to play
