  • _almidas almidas (@_almidas) reported

    @SlackHQ Thanks for the reply! It looks like I'm having issues with it then. The website says the TZ I set manually, as well as the Android app. The setting to automatically update the TZ is off... But the app is still showing times for my current TZ Any troubleshooting tips?

  • jonrandy Jon Randy (@jonrandy) reported

    @SlackHQ Maybe you should call it "format text using partially non-functional markdown"? There are also very annoying issues entering formatting using markdown when the option is turned off - hence why I did so. The whole editor needs fixing

  • Living_Deadline (@Living_Deadline) reported

    @SlackHQ @msodrew it's been 3+ years. Any plans to fix this?

  • maslowbeer Sean Stoner (@maslowbeer) reported from Santa Monica, California

    @SlackHQ bug (feature?) - putting (at) everyone in DM "error processing message" in the mobile app. Expected response would be a warning dialog that everyone will not receive the message but you can submit anyway.

  • lyndseyrathburn lyndsey (@lyndseyrathburn) reported

    The additional step of having to press the down arrow is taking years off my life.... @SlackHQ need u to fix plz help

  • archslide Chris ABOLISH ICE Doyle (@archslide) reported

    @SlackHQ cmd-t no longer autoselects a channel to jump to, so I have to down-arrow every single time? Is that an intentional change? 😢😢😢

  • lyndseyrathburn lyndsey (@lyndseyrathburn) reported

    The cmd-K shortcut doesn’t work anymore and I’m losing my mind @SlackHQ help

  • jonrandy Jon Randy (@jonrandy) reported

    @SlackHQ Principally - lists. Although your help page weirdly states that it is not possible. So how come entering it in markdown whilst the 'markdown only' switch is off... Works!!?? This makes zero sense

  • jayroh "Joel" - One syllable. (@jayroh) reported

    @SlackHQ I think y'all broke "Command + T" in service of, I presume, better usability. That behavior's gonna be pretty tough to un-learn. Just some feedback.

  • darrellwhitelaw dw (@darrellwhitelaw) reported from Los Angeles, California

    Context for @SlackHQ - we use shared channels with customers. The first time this happened we actually thought the customer had up and walked away from our service. When we reached out they were confused why we were asking about the status of the partnership.

  • elisadoucette Elisa Doucette (@elisadoucette) reported

    @laura_serino @SlackHQ I've been on it all morning, though I've only gotten/sent a few messages - so I only know there isn't a sustained outage.

  • _auraz Alex Kryklia (@_auraz) reported

    Hey @SlackHQ I never used drafts, but got "You got maximum drafts allowed". Go into drafts - 102 drafts. How delete them? This is a strange feature: if I type nothing but just an open channel, it creates a draft. Please fix.

  • icelabaratory Ivan Starkov (@icelabaratory) reported

    @SlackHQ on android is disaster, I had issues been on native android (ghost unread counts and notification exists but message not visible), changed phone and have same issues on it. Its the only messenger I have issues on my phone.

  • ColtonIdle Colton Idle (@ColtonIdle) reported

    @SlackHQ @slacksupport cmd + k is broken? it doesn't auto select a conversation anymore.

  • AbstractCode Colin but in lockdown (@AbstractCode) reported

    Today's incredibly petty problem to have: @SlackHQ has trained me to think anything in bold on the left hand side of the screen is something I need to respond to and then made the organisation name bold. STOP IT.

  • bluespore Sean undefined 👾 (@bluespore) reported

    @SlackHQ An option to collapse larger msgs may help improve productivity with Slack, by removing focus on the content that continues to compete for attention when you're scanning the channel. Hope that makes sense. Let me know if you need further elaboration.

  • victorbrca Victor Mendonça 🇨🇦 (@victorbrca) reported

    Having issues signing in to @SlackHQ on @waveboxio 10? Just change the sign-in method to use credentials instead of getting an email with the sign-in code.

  • andrewrynhard Andrew Rynhard (@andrewrynhard) reported

    @_ParticleDecay @SlackHQ I thought Slack was broken when I ran into this. Hate it.

  • petermessana Peter Messana (@petermessana) reported

    @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.

  • _glnarayanan Lakshmi Narayanan (@_glnarayanan) reported

    @_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.

  • _glnarayanan Lakshmi Narayanan (@_glnarayanan) reported

    @_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.

  • vpcvishnu Vishnu Prabhakaran (@vpcvishnu) reported

    @SlackHQ @SlackHQ Yes I am on latest version. This issue is persist on all devices across my team.

  • _muralidharan_ Muralidharan Venkatasubramanian (@_muralidharan_) reported

    @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!

  • tequilamknbrd Tequila Mockingbird (@tequilamknbrd) reported

    @SlackHQ Yea and then managers wonder why you’re not working from home...does nothing tbh

  • petermessana Peter Messana (@petermessana) reported

    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.

  • AKGrenier Adam Grenier (@AKGrenier) reported

    @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

  • earlboyk sam f (@earlboyk) reported

    @SlackHQ did you change command + k behavior so it doesn't automatically highlight unread channels (instead you have to down arrow)? if so...why??

  • migueldeicaza Miguel de Icaza (@migueldeicaza) reported

    @pedantcoder @SlackHQ Come to think of it - that really is a terrible name for that attribute.

  • vpcvishnu Vishnu Prabhakaran (@vpcvishnu) reported

    @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.

  • fraser_lab James Fraser (A$AP J) (@fraser_lab) reported

    @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
