Slack Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • HeadcaseGames Headcase Games (@HeadcaseGames) reported

    @sterlingcrispin @SlackHQ & let the company using it have to deal with whatever HR issues there are w/out involving the software. The harrassee can take a screen shot & show it to their superiors or whatever. Not ideal but it prevents the app creator for having any blame in productivity hiccups (cont'd)

  • ashtron Ash Gibson (@ashtron) reported from Hackney, England

    @TheRealRealRish @SlackHQ I’m just trying to make a helpful public service announcement, ya hear, for the good of open place office workers worldwide.

  • SamatJain uıɐɾ ʞ ʇɐɯɐs (@SamatJain) reported

    Everytime I use @SlackHQ's search it's a huge disappointment — too much clicking to find and filter down what I'm looking for.

  • Suw Suw (@Suw) reported

    @SlackHQ Ah, thanks! I didn’t get round to fixing the other issue, so did the clear cache and that did the trick. So whether the other problem is what I think it is… I have no idea. But at least Slack works now!

  • JRDPA Robin Davidson (@JRDPA) reported

    @SlackHQ No problem. Not bad, just not the one you meant since it worked. :-p

  • ramsey Ben Ramsey (@ramsey) reported from Nashville, Tennessee

    @amandabee @MaybeEdward @mendel @SlackHQ I just realized we could probably do some really cool CSRF attacks with Slack, since they do a GET request for URLs pasted (won’t work if they proxy through their service, though, since they won’t send along your browser cookies).

  • Suw Suw (@Suw) reported

    @SlackHQ Oops, looks like it might be a framebuffering issue with my mac! Been having issues for ages, but this actually finally diagnosed it.

  • PhilHagen Phil Hagen (@PhilHagen) reported

    @SlackHQ message sent. this is not only me - every single other slack user I work with has the same comment. Trust us - it's a known issue on our side of the keyboard, too. Now make it a formerly-known issue!

  • pwnsdx Sabri (@pwnsdx) reported

    @mendel @SlackHQ I know a company where I flagged this issue at early stage of development long time ago, and in order to fix it we did unless label == link, show a popup saying you are about to open link

  • colemanranahan Coleman Patrick Ranahan (@colemanranahan) reported

    @SlackHQ I figured it out eventually by deleting Slack entirely and re-downloading - the work space entirely removed itself but that seems like a wack - work-around. When I clicked on removing the work space it told me “There was a glitch”.

  • jamonholmgren Jamon Holmgren (@jamonholmgren) reported

    @raymahl @SlackHQ I agree. Slack’s team not being remote is a problem though. They don’t understand the problem space.

  • Blincs Dan R Blincoe II (@Blincs) reported

    @SlackHQ you keep teasing us with folders to help organize the side bar but alas we still are folderless! Please give us folders!!! My project managers implore you!

  • mountain_ghosts thread::spawn(relocate || {}) (@mountain_ghosts) reported

    @SlackHQ I'd like option-{up,down} and option-shift-{up,down} to work like they do for channels; it's really confusing to see "more unreads" and be unable to navigate to it because it's actually referring to the "threads" tab, which I can't see as it's off-screen

  • MyRainbowNinja RainbowNinjaDictator (@MyRainbowNinja) reported

    @joeynoname @SlackHQ Try uninstalling it and reinstalling it if you have already set the language preference to English and it doesn't work. That being said, the admin can set the language for everyone. So that could also be an issue even though you should be able to swap languages.

  • mwichary Marcin Wichary (@mwichary) reported

    @MySweetHubert @heyitsgarrett @meaganrgamache @SlackHQ @jenny_wen Best icon ever! This whole thing started because I remembered the broom icon from somewhere and others had to help me figure out where it lived.

  • DaveDri David Ryan (@DaveDri) reported

    @maguay @SlackHQ @merci That playbook was how we got Corilla over some growth hurdles. Obsessive support of those bringing us in, and a tipping point of “you’ve got X teams on this, we can help you go all in, or help leave”. Oddly helping some leave brought them back later when internal efforts failed.

  • johannes_totz Johannes Totz (@johannes_totz) reported

    @SlackHQ Version from 14th feb. Says play store. This problem has been going on for a while, many weeks.

  • allanwhite Allan White (@allanwhite) reported

    @jamonholmgren @SlackHQ Full-screen on Mac has always been and remains broken. I use an app called Moom to make it work like I want.

  • purple_prawn Callum Burns (@purple_prawn) reported

    @telegram @im_nuruddin What a half baked reason... Over the two or so years of telegram usage I have seen no issue with the reponsiveness of typing at all! @SlackHQ manages to do the exact same thing without issue... #emojiGate #totalJoke

  • jamonholmgren Jamon Holmgren (@jamonholmgren) reported

    I wish @slackhq had a local time clock in the app when I'm full-screen on my Mac. The top menu bar goes away in full-screen mode, so the only way to see the current time is to move the mouse to the top of the screen to have it pop down. Slack adding a clock would fix this.

  • hannahfeldman_ hannah 4 bernie (@hannahfeldman_) reported

    @SlackHQ I keep getting an error message every time I try to load my threads - help!

  • indextwo Lawrie with a Wubbleyou (@indextwo) reported

    @thebirdiehansen I don’t think I’ve noticed that *exact* issue, but: @SlackHQ support are really, really good at responding.

  • johannes_totz Johannes Totz (@johannes_totz) reported

    @SlackHQ your android app is kinda broken (to the point that it's near useless): it doesn't show certain messages. It'll have the notification dot but not the message itself. Have to check on desktop to see the text.

  • metapredict Jamie Timmons (@metapredict) reported

    @lpachter @biorxivpreprint @Google @SlackHQ @rxivist @Twitter Many Nature et al genomic articles provide ‘data summaries’ as PDFs for NO good reason. It obscures easy checking & comparisons (text and table disconnects frequent). EXCEL files are very practical & the date issue is trivial to solve in comparison.

  • DomKent Dominic Kent 💻📱 📝 (@DomKent) reported from Saint Columb Major, England

    @MeredithSchulz @imlazar @SlackHQ @SlackAPI @slack To-dos for other people in Slack is a great idea. But I can’t help feel it could be easily abused. *Sends Meredith a ton of to-dos to prove point*

  • lpachter Lior Pachter (@lpachter) reported

    @biorxivpreprint @Google @SlackHQ @rxivist @Twitter With a prior at hand l may delve into the preprint. The point of the prior is that it guides me when I'm stuck. If my prior is high I doubt myself and try again. If my prior is low, I wonder whether the problem is with the preprint, not me. This reduces imposter syndrome. 22/

  • lpachter Lior Pachter (@lpachter) reported

    @biorxivpreprint @Google @SlackHQ @rxivist @Twitter I find a common problem nowadays is people performing multiple-testing correction for their p-values with one multiple testing correction per test. Then the authors report dozens of p-values from different experiments and argue that one of them is significant. 🤔18/

  • stenpittet Sten 👨🏾‍💻🤷🏾‍♂️ (@stenpittet) reported

    @jroper @SlackHQ We went back on our integration with Slack to send less information exactly because of that issue.

  • MissReyTheJedi Rey Palpatine Skywalker saw TROS (@MissReyTheJedi) reported

    @SlackHQ I tried both but the problem still persists

  • GinaLipere Gina Lipere (@GinaLipere) reported

    I'm having this super tiny, but annoying problem with @SlackHQ where all of the screenshots I send through come in darker and it's weird and makes zero sense to me.

  • DecFromBitpanda Dec. (@DecFromBitpanda) reported

    @SlackHQ For me, it happens sporadically and I haven't recorded exactly what was happening beforehand unfortunately so I can't help there

  • PetrusTheron Petrus Theron (@PetrusTheron) reported

    WTF @SlackHQ Markdown is broken in Slack for code. Please don't try to do WYSIWYG in the text input!

  • EdgarttMelton Edgartt "Ed" Melton (@EdgarttMelton) reported

    @SlackHQ Good morning. I changed phones, and my 2FA for the authentication is out of sync and no longer working. Help, please.

  • AVGrump Harry Meade (@AVGrump) reported

    @BradOrme @rodeostore @SlackHQ @Microsoft I had massive problems with Teams at my last job. The integration with Sharepoint made the files virtually unusable for the engineering dept. And it was way easier to do messages and video on Skype. I only used it when I had to. #avintheam

  • jderusse Jérémy DERUSSÉ (@jderusse) reported

    @SlackHQ thanks for reply :-) Issue is also, that I have to switch from one tab to another... For instance, would be great to list all the channels/private conv from all my accounts.

  • rodeostore DPT (@rodeostore) reported

    @BradOrme @SlackHQ @Microsoft #AVintheAM with 25 years of experience being let down by @Microsoft I would never bank on one of their products.

  • jderusse Jérémy DERUSSÉ (@jderusse) reported

    @beberlei issue is the not the tool itself. The issue is @SlackHQ requires a new account for each "group" and requires to switch context to check notification/channel,... Having a single account, and unified Interface would solve most of the issues.

  • morisson morisson (@morisson) reported

    @DinisCruz @SlackHQ I’ve been asking that same question for years. It’s terrible UX. Why can’t we just have one account and join multiple slacks it’s beyond comprehension.

  • idprism ❤ 🇺🇸 ✠ (@idprism) reported

    @SlackHQ @MorlockP You know, it only took them eight years to make a dark mode. I'm sure they will fix everything quickly.

  • cassytrussell Cassy Trussell (@cassytrussell) reported

    @mkobach @ChipotleTweets I’ve always loved @SlackHQ attention to design and copy (especially the bug fix notes) and @Pinterest commitment to their users and to fighting disinformation

  • jmpspn Nik Johnson (@jmpspn) reported

    Come on @SlackHQ, get it together. We solved the million follower fanout problem years ago.

  • toeknee123 Tony Chan (@toeknee123) reported

    @SlackHQ @QuinnyPig I am just a mere peasant in @QuinnyPig kingdom. Please send help in the form of folders and groupings. Us peons has suffered enough under the rule of King Corey.

  • jmitch Justin Mitchell (@jmitch) reported

    @mobile_patterns @reallygoodemail @newtonmailapp @SoapBoxHQ @nounproject @What_Font @Jumpshare @paste_app @CodePen @SlackHQ @Hubstaff @webflow @YacChat @zapier *Update* @newtonmailapp is shutting down April, 30 Replacing newton with @missiveapp

  • iamharold Rih Corduroy Jackson-jackson (@iamharold) reported

    @SlackHQ Lookit that customer service

  • febbraro Frank Febbraro (@febbraro) reported

    @SlackHQ Can confirm that the short URL doesn't have the same problem. Thanks for the quick response.

  • robkallday Rob K (@robkallday) reported

    @jmitch @YacChat @mobile_patterns @reallygoodemail @newtonmailapp @SoapBoxHQ @nounproject @What_Font @Jumpshare @paste_app @CodePen @SlackHQ @Hubstaff @webflow @zapier Too bad @newtonmailapp shuts down end of April

  • TreysonMarks Treyson Marks (@TreysonMarks) reported

    @dataMack @benjnmoss @SlackHQ @andre347_ @alteryx @amazon Alexa wakes me up in the middle of the night. I go down make some coffee, get to work. Send the report out in the morning.

  • Face_Almighty44 Dux Bellorum (@Face_Almighty44) reported

    @MorlockP @SlackHQ I must not be using it enough/hard enough. Haven't noticed issues

  • MorlockP Dogs Don't Have Thumbs (@MorlockP) reported

    well @SlackHQ has [ further ] broken their UI an update that rolled live a few minutes ago means that I can no longer use the TAB key to move from text entry to the "submit" button the UI bugs have really been piling up the last month or two, especially on mobile

  • ammonite Alex Fleetwood (@ammonite) reported

    Someone posted a mega thread of like 150 custom emojis of all the animal crossing characters in @SlackHQ and it’s completely broken slack 💩can’t load any other channels or get off the page

  • TaylorSicard 👨🏻‍💻taylor (@TaylorSicard) reported

    @mattscottnelson @SlackHQ 100% this would solve so many problems and allow teams to use more than the 12 most frequently used emojis.

  • AaronGilbert5 Aaron Gilbert (@AaronGilbert5) reported

    @SlackHQ pls fix spotify embeds D:

  • KevMain Kevin Main (@KevMain) reported

    Never had this issue with @SlackHQ :)

  • rustincavel Rustin Cavel 🔜 @PAX East (@rustincavel) reported

    @captainyarb @SlackHQ I.e. Rustin is cluttering my Slack - please send help.

  • peterghorner Peter Horner (@peterghorner) reported

    @alicekeeler Using @SlackHQ in my IT Services department. We have channels for various projects we're working on. Also linked to other systems via web hooks so we get notified when there is a problem. I'm about to start introducing our staff to @GoogleForEdu #HangoutsChat.

  • fplanque Francois Planque (@fplanque) reported

    @SlackHQ @leftdevel Same issue here. "more actions > edit" doesn't work either. This is restricted to the Mac app. In a browser, it works.

  • Pamela_Drouin pam drouin (@Pamela_Drouin) reported

    so i created a @SlackHQ platform for just myself & i'm trying to add a few integrations. it's staggering how many broken links there are once you click though slack's app pages to each app's website. every listed app i've wanted to add is no longer available. it's sad :(

  • ianpatrickhines Ian Patrick Hines (@ianpatrickhines) reported

    @danmall @NotionHQ @SlackHQ Shared Channels do help reduce login fragmentation across devices. Also, then you own a copy of the chat record even after you leave the “org.”

  • danmall Dan Mall (@danmall) reported

    @ianpatrickhines @NotionHQ @SlackHQ That doesn't really change the volume of noise… just redistributes it. Feels like an equivalent problem to me.
