Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • RachelGZink Rachel Zink (@RachelGZink) reported

    @SlackHQ I was able to download from the app store with no issue. Definitely odd though!

  • onibirdo Simply the Bert (@onibirdo) reported

    @SlackHQ It's been resolved - seems it was an issue on my side. Thanks for the support!

  • ManLikeDel Young Coach. (@ManLikeDel) reported

    @fascinated @SlackHQ @JustJoshying yo. Would help a bunch, let's add it.

  • zalmanlew Zalman ''Beto'' Lew (@zalmanlew) reported

    @SlackHQ @serenawilliams Also, did I mention that she's a terrible sport.

  • myspivey Spivey 👨‍💻 (@myspivey) reported

    @SlackHQ lack of a dark theme is a classic case of a company focused on a lot of problems they think people have, and ignoring the really simple one right in front of them everyone wants fixed.

  • DebrodeD Broderick Klemetson (@DebrodeD) reported

    @SlackHQ That fixed it, I clicked on the hamburger menu in the upper left of the window -> help -> restart to update and that fixed the issue. However, I wasn't made aware that I had an update pending anywhere, weird. Regardless, thanks for the quick help!

  • DebrodeD Broderick Klemetson (@DebrodeD) reported

    @SlackHQ I'm seeing that same error again today in my system tray.

  • dlsniper Florin Pățan (@dlsniper) reported

    @SlackHQ It's good to know it's a known problem but a solution would be nice, even if it involves a server polling one, or dare I say it, using HTTP/2 or gRPC instead.

  • alexjvasquez Part-time Hooligan (@alexjvasquez) reported

    Seemed to happen whenever I opened @SlackHQ - Anyway, glad I don't have to deal with it anymore. @apple please fix your shit and stop doing weird animoji garbage things.

  • thebowseat Matt Antos-Lewis (@thebowseat) reported

    @RoryCrewACA @zoom_us @MicrosoftTeams Hi Rory, the best solution to your problem is to uninstall the software, then install @SlackHQ. You should find that your experience is smooth from then on. Thanks, customer success.

  • oohshestealin Jess S. (@oohshestealin) reported

    @AppleSupport I’m having this same issue, and I need to download @SlackHQ to stay on call for work!

  • jaquionabines gnes dela cruz (@jaquionabines) reported

    @SlackHQ Just want to ask why I am having problems installing Slack on my computer. Getting error "the procedure entry point SetDefaultDllDirectories could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll" I'm using Windows 7. Please advise what I need to do to fix this.

  • vemilson Victor (@vemilson) reported

    @SlackHQ My organization is stuck on Skype. If you could help me out convincing 100+ people to switch and see the benefits easily with Slack in a one pager it would be awesome. I don’t have time to do so cause I’m stuck with trying to communicate via Skype with my colleagues.

  • chrisheuer Chris Heuer (@chrisheuer) reported

    @dhinchcliffe @kyleconnaughton @ST_Farms @guyraz @SlackHQ Cuts down on email but drastically increases the number of DMs and slack channels an employee needs to stay current. I use it, but still needs a better context filter (and a slackbox for all my different orgs using it)

  • jrmarandola Julianna Marandola (@jrmarandola) reported

    @kegallagher18 @SlackHQ Personally, I found @SlackHQ to be more of annoyance than a help when I was on a team that used it, but I agree that the benefits for transparency/accountability are huge- difficult to hide when your work trail updates are consistently sent out for the group to see #IS6621

  • dhinchcliffe Dion Hinchcliffe #SlackFrontiers (@dhinchcliffe) reported

    With over 1,000 #cloud apps helping run the average org, @SlackHQ wants to help connect together these silos of apps, files, data, and teams says Chief Product Officer Tamar Yehoshu. More than that, "search across these is absolutely key." #slackfrontiers #digitalworkplace

  • rowanlupton rowan (@rowanlupton) reported

    @SlackHQ i was able to get around this in my self-dm by reacting and then using `+:point_up::skin-tone-6:`, but when i clicked anything on reactji it collapsed, so i assume that it was probably just a caching error or s/t of the sort

  • maryam_sabbagh Maryam Sabbagh (@maryam_sabbagh) reported

    @SabrinElan @serenawilliams @SlackHQ If you end up going to the anticipating incidents one, let me know how it goes, that was always #1 issue ppl brought up when I introduced slack

  • swaevior your own personal swaevior (@swaevior) reported

    .@SlackHQ release notes: “There was a bug that would sometimes cause a thing. We turned it off, then turned it back on again. Now it works as expected. Technology!” “Anything behaving badly has been shown the error of its ways.”

  • chelounger Billiam (@chelounger) reported

    @SlackHQ So FYI I am having to clear my cache multiple times per day in order to view images in the app. It's a pain. Would be great if you fixed this commonly reported issue

  • SeedTechHelp SeedTech (@SeedTechHelp) reported

    @ygini @SlackHQ I have to argue that this claim is a little odd… With the Slack platform being web based and native based for macOS, Windows, iOS and android you should have no problem using the tools you need within Slack. 3 yr customer here with growth, you just seem heated.

  • robb Robert Balousek (@robb) reported

    @SlackHQ @katyaprigara I'm going to jump into this thread to agree. I don't want the recent searches. I want to be able to see I'm caught up because the quick switcher is empty (also being able to cyclically arrow up/down when it's not.)

  • K3ru (◕‿◕💻) Laravel slave p o t e i t o (@K3ru) reported

    @SlackHQ Thanks for replying, and sure! I'd be glad to update if that solves the problem. I'm not entirely sure this time, as I had to force restart the VM, but other times I had the same problem, has been mostly a RAM issue.

  • Vaughn_E_Miller Vaughn Miller (@Vaughn_E_Miller) reported

    @refrshingapathy @hunty1er @SlackHQ Really embarrassing for @SlackHQ that this is still a problem.

  • lillylindah Lilith Adam Sullivan (@lillylindah) reported

    @SlackHQ changing the login AGAIN makes my ticket count go up again. I wasn't ready for it, dudes

  • emile_hay ᴇᴍɪʟᴇ ʜᴀʏ (@emile_hay) reported

    Hey, @VlipsyApp! My friends and I love your service but would love it if the @SlackHQ app could play videos inline, having to click the link to view the videos in the browser is such a drag!

  • technerdteitzel Chris Teitzel (@technerdteitzel) reported

    @ryandonsullivan @tessak22 @SlackHQ After talking with the support rep they’ve got a sprint going about the badge issue as it’s widely reported. For the notifications it was a mixture of the delay setting and a reset of the notification tokens. Makes it much more reliable now

  • nevertoocurious Signe Dean (@nevertoocurious) reported

    @SlackHQ My colleague actually reported it, she's using Windows 8.1 and Chrome version 73.0.3683.103 - apparently the links would still open in the background last week! (I wouldn't know, I use the Desktop app.) I tried and have the same problem, Windows 7, same Chrome version.

  • PamelaBarroway Pamela Barroway (@PamelaBarroway) reported

    @s_narmadhaa @Kathrynclang @JBugs10210 @evernote @trello @SlackHQ Oh, that's the worst! Or, say, you leave your glasses on a counter that is the same color, forget where you put them and can't find them bc you're nearsighted and no one else is home to help you search! #SocialCafe

  • alexseigler Alex Seigler (@alexseigler) reported

    @timcappalli @SlackHQ It gets the job done. I feel you though, it makes no sense why slack uses so much memory for what it is. I've run random irc clients on machines with well under 1gb of memory in the whole machine and never had this sort of problem. People just accept it now and buy more hardware.

  • llake lillian lake (@llake) reported

    @SabrinaCadini @paper_li @LastPass @googledrive @SlackHQ @airtable @trello @Calendly @Mailchimp @RebrandlyBuzz Sometimes it feels like 100's! And many of them require changing every 6 mos or less & then I have some I change more often intentionally. It seems this would beat the "forgot password" option! 😂I've looked at various options but trust is an issue with me. #BizHeroes

  • chrisguitarguy Christopher Davis (@chrisguitarguy) reported

    @SlackHQ Just on the sidebar of the desktop app. Icon looks fine everywhere else. Tried a restart and refresh to fix it, but no dice.

  • Ruud_ Ruud Kamphuis (@Ruud_) reported

    @SlackHQ I know the bug. When you come from "All unreads" it doesn't show the option. But if you go to the channel and click the message it does. Annoying bug, please fix :)

  • ChimdiBAM Chimdi BAM Chimereze (@ChimdiBAM) reported

    @iam_dharmy @SlackHQ But then, thinking about it, the structure for a social network vs that of a productivity software are really not the same. But then, I know the process can still be better. I might even attempt to solve this problem when I have some free time.

  • scopela26 Shelby (@scopela26) reported

    @SlackHQ I'm trying to sign in and my authentication code isn't being sent for me to login and I can't remember my back up codes. I usually get a text

  • pietvanzoen Piet 🇳🇱 (@pietvanzoen) reported

    @SlackHQ Slack auto updating seems a bit broken for me. Keeps showing the “Last updated x minutes ago”. Clicking “load new messages” loads stuff successfully. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  • vietroadie 阮 添 福 (@vietroadie) reported

    If reviled Outlook, Gmail message can thread itself when users reply, and @SlackHQ cannot, then why would I use it in the first place unless it something being jammed down my throat as the latest fad.

  • sinamocha_ Mocha (@sinamocha_) reported

    @SlackHQ Ya still feels creepy knowing my boss knows who I text most even if its myself. Since I have your attention.. can you pls fix your photo upload. Upload takes forever. Also why isn't delete channel an option

  • scott_lowe Scott S. Lowe (@scott_lowe) reported

    I really wish @SlackHQ would fix the issue with their Linux client where it renders black text on a dark menu background, making the menus unreadable. The fix is already in Electron!

  • martin31821 martin31821 (@martin31821) reported

    @SlackHQ Sometimes >1minute, mostly like 20-30secs. I'm fairly often on the #kubernetes slack, the problem seems to be more present on workspaces with very large userbases.

  • RogierSlag Rogier Slag (@RogierSlag) reported

    @SlackHQ No problem, bugs happen! Hope it gets resolved soon :)

  • eibcb Brent Billings 🤨 (@eibcb) reported

    @SlackHQ Not only does the latest version on the Mac fail to fix the issue of the wrong workspace icon showing up for some workspaces (as the release notes claim is fixed), it is also forcing the discrete GPU to run on my laptop and slaughtering my battery. 🤬

  • beancentral Bean Central Coffee (@beancentral) reported

    @SlackHQ suddenly the last three years of posts/files are missing. Help!!! Please

  • ilmagodiloz Lorenzo Franchini (@ilmagodiloz) reported

    @SlackHQ The issue is definitely fixed on my side 🎉 I actually noticed it yesterday!

  • manish_rathi_ Manish Rathi (@manish_rathi_) reported

    @SlackHQ Dear team, first of all, thank you so much for such an amazing iOS app.💯 Problem I am facing is, microphone button during a slack call is so confusing. It's really hard to figure out that its Mute or UnMute....please check, looking forward for a positive response 🎉

  • thanland Than Tibbetts (@thanland) reported

    @justinph @SlackHQ Which, come to think of it, is probably part of the problem I have scanning for it.

  • the_CityLion Marie McGwier (@the_CityLion) reported

    @kalehummus @SlackHQ Agreed! Interesting design problem to need to solve for, we humans just really took slack and ran with creating way too many channels.

  • JJ_McC_BOSS1987 JOHNJOSEPH McCORMACK☝️🥊 (@JJ_McC_BOSS1987) reported

    Anyone else have a problem when they upload a video recording the video uploads but the screen is black but the sound is ok SMH so annoying #iPhone8 #iOS #Twitter @TwitterVideo @TwitterSupport @SlackHQ

  • jcjohnsonmo Jane Coe Johnson (@jcjohnsonmo) reported

    .@SlackHQ Not able to access Preferences using the Windows app, but can on mobile app and using browser. Tried 1) quitting app and restarting, 2) logging out, quitting, restarting, and 3) rebooting desktop. Co-workers don't have same issue.

  • brianlmoon Brian Moon (@brianlmoon) reported

    @ramsey @SlackHQ I think they install a background service or something. Never understood the reasons why apps do that. Adobe is terrible about it.

  • CarloMara1 Carlo Mara (@CarloMara1) reported

    @SlackHQ Yhea I know, is just that the error + slack complaining was fun

  • ryandavis Ryan Davis (@ryandavis) reported

    Dear @Yubico, while it might be a user experience issue, I get endless joy out of our channel Bots starting a roast whenever people drop a YubiKey Touch string into a @SlackHQ channel.

  • spdustin ➖Dustin Miller➖ (@spdustin) reported

    @slpng_giants @SlackHQ Cue the throngs of people who don't know the actual definitions of: • censorship • fascism • the First Amendment • terms of service agreements …but will still claim they were censored by fascists who stole their First Amendment rights even though they agreed to honor a ToS

  • ikeough Ian Keough (@ikeough) reported

    @jacobbolda @SlackHQ It may be. But the most noticeable problem is that having the slack desktop app open on a mac and trying to do anything with webGL in chrome is a wreck.

  • FoggyTheCamel Charlie (@FoggyTheCamel) reported

    @SlackHQ Switched to WhatsApp and Skype. Slack is way too lame on dealing with network bandwidth issues that disrupt message delivery sequences. Basic coding logic. I don't have this issue with WhatsApp, Skype, Wikr, Wire .... they can handle basic Comms

  • wickman brian wickman (@wickman) reported

    @skr @garru @Twitter @SlackHQ @onesnowclimber CAN'T FIX WHAT AIN'T BROKE

  • DashFire61_2 DashFire61 (@DashFire61_2) reported

    @SlackHQ @seija_chan Looking at @discordapp that isn’t marketed as a professional service but has more professional features than slack that has been around much longer. Great your stuff together slack.

  • m5 Jackbooted Tot (@m5) reported

    @SlackHQ I can do that. It is quite repeatable: clicking over to a group I haven't seen in a while just locks up the UI almost completely. I generally have no problems with my Firefox setup and I'm on the Internet for an embarrassing amount of time every day.

  • dgrandhay Dorian (@dgrandhay) reported

    @SlackHQ I reseted the cache again, it fixed it but it seems to be a temporary fix.. I'm facing the issue both in wifi and cellular, regardless of the network :/

  • dgrandhay Dorian (@dgrandhay) reported

    @SlackHQ Hey, I'm facing the issue, again 😔
