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

    @equinusocio @SlackHQ @SlackStatus It looks like it was an issue on Slack since the entire office, phone and home was down. But I agree this also could have worked.

  • zachinflux Zach (@zachinflux) reported

    @SlackHQ Running version 4.26.1 on Mac OS 11.6.5, I use my threads in my sidebar, but unfortunately they don't automatically update on replies and bring latest message to top. I have to constantly cmd+click "Threads" to get it to refresh. Any fix?

  • equinusocio Mattia Astorino (@equinusocio) reported

    @BilalArarou @SlackHQ @SlackStatus Everything is working. If you check the error is a DNS issue with your provider. Try to change dns to google dns or cloudflare ones.

  • PJViaene Pieterjan (@PJViaene) reported

    @SlackHQ Can somebody help me out. What if your primary owner has got an emailadress that doesn't exist anymore?

  • jtf107 JT Falcioni (@jtf107) reported

    @SlackHQ I just wanted to say: Of every method I have ever used, to communicate in any way, with anyone, your interface is the most cancerous and terrible. I cannot fathom how your service could be anything other than the abandoned work of 2 drunk CS undergrads.

  • AlduinWF Alduin (@AlduinWF) reported

    Hello @SlackHQ Can I follow a thread I don’t participate in? If not, consider this a feature request. :) Also please fix the emote bug on iOS. When i try to enter :dra and I select the dragon face from the list, autocorrect kicks in when submitting and I don’t have the emote

  • ZKamvar Zhian N. Kamvar (@ZKamvar) reported

    I'm on Ubuntu 20.04 and for the last week, the apt version of @SlackHQ will launch, but will not show a GUI and the snap version is still all sorts of broken.

  • Drarok Mat Gadd (@Drarok) reported

    @SlackHQ Kill the app, exact same sequence will happen. Works only the first time I load my primary workspace, irrespective of which I load first. Other workspaces seem less- or un-affected, just the important first one is broken beyond use.

  • ploeh Mark Seemann (@ploeh) reported

    @tastapod @SlackHQ @MicrosoftTeams I wasn't being too serious, but I think that the problem with systems like Slack is ultimately not one of UX or technology, but one of human cognition. Does it matter that information arrives asynchronously, or that it's persisted, if there's too much of it?

  • GAnnCampbell G. Ann Campbell #BLM (@GAnnCampbell) reported

    After 7h, I finally got tired of hearing my laptop fan & shut down @SlackHQ 🙄

  • JTKAT16 🟠🦎 JTKAT.SOL {nyu} (@JTKAT16) reported

    Looks like we have a @discord security issue that shows it’s head daily across the NFT space. What’s the solution here? Move away from discord? @SlackHQ could be an alternative… surly missing tools. What a bummer to see so many fall victim to scammers.

  • pjmckee Pete McKee (@pjmckee) reported

    Who needs an expensive music subscription service when you can just chill alone in a @SlackHQ huddle

  • StellarPlanet Hannah Wakeford (@StellarPlanet) reported

    Re-setting up my desktop computer after some IT issues and it is very telling when @SlackHQ shows warnings multiple times that I can only open up 15 workspaces at once!

  • CahlDee 🇶 Carl D | cahldee.eth (@CahlDee) reported

    I'm convinced @SlackHQ doesn't have any employees in NYC. How can such a mature company have a mobile app that can't figure out what to do while service is in and out on the subway?

  • AllharlowsEve Harlow. 🌥🏚 (@AllharlowsEve) reported

    @SlackHQ Another voiceover bug, fully updated app/iPhone, the app doesn't show people's display names, only their username. I think it's been an issue for a few versions but I'm not sure.

  • truthtellerGB CustomerServiceTruth (@truthtellerGB) reported

    @SlackHQ I heard your app is compatible with @Grammarly but can’t seem to find the option to get it working with the MacOS app. Can you help?

  • OmniscienceD Omniscience.Digital (@OmniscienceD) reported

    @SlackHQ my @ “someone” does not work using slack on iPad mini in threads and initial posts, please help, it shows as normal text and does not pull through

  • anmolm_ Anmol (@anmolm_) reported

    @miten @WhatsApp @SlackHQ "it’s already all intermingled" this sounds terrible 😬

  • pelavarre Pat LaVarre (@pelavarre) reported

    @SlackHQ you know this problem? """ Slack does flood the floor of the main Slack Channel with a copy of every edit we make to Channel Topic or Channel Description - i am sorry that i lack the power to shove back and tell it to shut up """ could you coalesce these edits?

  • vnicolici Vladimir Nicolici (@vnicolici) reported

    @SlackHQ Found the problem, Slack is not compatible with NVIDIA G-SYNC, and I enabled G-SYNC for windowed apps yesterday. Then, when I restarted Slack today, the problem started. Now I disabled G-SYNC for windowed apps, restarted Slack, and the problem went away.

  • vnicolici Vladimir Nicolici (@vnicolici) reported

    @SlackHQ It started happening again today. I'm on Windows 10. Disabling hardware acceleration made the problem go away.

  • hubertlepicki Hubert Łępicki ❌🦶🐍 (@hubertlepicki) reported

    @SlackHQ yo can you fix the typing lag in the text field on your web app? Thanks.

  • phuctm97 Minh-Phuc Tran (@phuctm97) reported

    @quiet_hustler @SlackHQ @getnora I checked it works across browsers for me. Oh, email client can be an issue!

  • leifjerami 🌾 Leif Latiff (@leifjerami) reported

    @phuctm97 @SlackHQ @getnora Not as frequent as others, but I have encountered "error verifying invite code" before.

  • phuctm97 Minh-Phuc Tran (@phuctm97) reported

    I’m having an issue with @SlackHQ that the invite link works for me and some users but it doesn’t work for some other users. Using it to deliver @getnora to customers and this is causing serious trouble 😕 Do you have experience with this sort of issue with Slack?

  • jamesd3rd James d (@jamesd3rd) reported

    @SlackHQ is there some problem/bug or integration issue with the Slack add-in and Outlook 2019? Specifically with Outlook used in business domains as opposed to individual licenses? For some reason it never loads from the Outlook toolbar. It stays blank.

  • senior Robin Senior (@senior) reported

    Anyone else find that lately the @SlackHQ iOS app has a lot of trouble with displaying correct unread badges and clearing unread threads? It also shows that I have a draft message when I don’t. Makes it quite frustrating to use the app.

  • turtlemonvh Timothy Van Heest (@turtlemonvh) reported

    @SlackHQ @mway I'm seeing the same thing. It's been happening intermittently for a few weeks. The first few times a restart fixed it but it's currently stuck in the broken mode where only the first couple lines are captured in the code block.

  • imdsm Adam K Dean (@imdsm) reported

    Looks like @instagram employed the same person who did the @slackhq redesign a few years back (losing the # logo among other things). Terrible change in UX. Too much messing with things that work just fine!
