Slack Issues ReportsLatest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
@antonioberetini @SlackHQ They broke their quick launcher. You used to be able to hit cmd+k and enter to go to next unread and could do this over and over to get through all channels. Now you have to hit cmd+k then down arrow. Extra keystroke and hand movement.
@_muralidharan_ @SlackHQ I'm just not sure if that's an issue with Slack or iOS/Android notifications. Fortunately, I'm not having the same problem on my OnePlus running Android 10. The inconsistency is weird.
@_muralidharan_ @SlackHQ Same with iOS app too! Notification badge is not counting down at all. What's worse is that DMs and Channels are not getting marked as read and keeps showing up & count doesn't change. I don't often know if it's a new message or it's just the old one.
@SlackHQ @SlackHQ Yes I am on latest version. This issue is persist on all devices across my team.
@SlackHQ has a broken Android app for weeks now. Channels will show as unread and the unread notification will not go away until you restart the app. Happening to others on the team too. Initially I thought it's a bug they'll fix quickly but it has been so long!
@SlackHQ Yea and then managers wonder why you’re not working from home...does nothing tbh
Companies try to do their best. @SlackHQ decided to break key UX to address screen reader problems. Accessibility is important, but there is a reason there are stairs and ramps to buildings, you provide accessibility as an option, you don't break UX for 90% of your users.
@SlackHQ, am I missing something or is logging into the app on a new device super painful? Download > Sign In > Web Browser > Remember/Find company slack address > Sign In > hunt for the "open in app" button, hidden in the drop-down menu Repeat for other workspaces
@SlackHQ did you change command + k behavior so it doesn't automatically highlight unread channels (instead you have to down arrow)? if so...why??
@pedantcoder @SlackHQ Come to think of it - that really is a terrible name for that attribute.
@SlackHQ android app is having issues. Whenever there is a message, I can see the notification popup. However, when I enter into slack, the message is not there. So I need to kill the slack and open it again to load new message. Checked multiple devices and it's all the same.
@SlackHQ did you change the quick switcher (command-K)? It used to select an unread channel - but now you have to hit the down arrow (an extra keystroke)... minor annoyance, but happens many many times a day for me
@SlackHQ Did you guys seriously break the quick switcher? Ctrl+K no longer autohighlights the most recent notified channel? So I can't Ctrl+K+Enter to just lightning switch into whomever just messaged me? Whyyyyy? WHYYYYYYY? Fix it!
from Stratford, England
@SlackHQ @oldergod Hi I have RSI issues and my hands hurt far less when I don’t have to move them as much. Having to move them to the arrow keys or the mouse causes my hands to hurt more, and makes me able to work less. Accessibility has many angles.
@PowerLlama @SlackHQ @justonemorenick +1! 😭 This new workflow is SO much slower, I have to hit the down arrow for each unread channel. Please bring back the old way, enable a screen-reader setting, etc.
