Slack Issues ReportsLatest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
You can’t do a participatory livestream with Q&A in @SlackHQ. I never thought of this as an issue. Until we (at our client) started sharing frequent, unfancy livestreams about what teams were building via Workplace. And now it seems like a huge gap in their product portfolio.
@jruckman @SlackHQ The problem is that 80% of these are either irrelevant by now (ie someone just at-mentioned me with a Q they remember the answer for 5 min later) or are multiple msgs which could have been written as one msg. Low density, high volume. Social-design problem.
@SlackHQ The shuffle feature is gone. Maybe that will help understand what I mean. There used to be a shuffle feature that allowed you to search through the gifs and you could “send” what you wanted
@rsms @auchenberg @SlackHQ @basecamp is doing a lot of effort to promote their way of working. Consisting of long form write ups instead of quick questions and shout outs. The only time they set up a meeting or chat is when the havey some complex problem to solve.
@tahelg @SlackHQ The problem is not with the bad (I usually hide the badge because the number is usually high enough to be meaningless.) It’s about the fact that the software encourages frequent, low-density, high-volume communication.
@auchenberg @SlackHQ This is more of a social design problem to me. Better would be to change behavior: Instead of making at-mention and DM feel quick and cheap, make it feel like a big deal. I think you’d end up with much fewer messages but the ones that are sent might be denser and more efficient.
@pickassoreborn @SlackHQ Yeah this reminds me of that. Terrible rotten UX.
Memo to everyone who’s suddenly using @SlackHQ a lot more now that they’re working remotely: Slack has an “Edit” feature. You can use it to fix your typos! Please do so, instead of sending follow-up messages like it’s a text or IM.
@SlackHQ What's new button doesn't go away once I've clicked what's new in the help menu. Clicking the button makes it go away, but opens a completely different interaction. A first-year design student would be better at this. 2/2
@SlackHQ Just to add to the thread, this is the most terrible feature in terms of usability, even worse than the inconsistencies in UI across devices...
@SlackHQ Right now you’re storing duplicate sets of secrets for each user across multiple teams. You can quantify the savings in diskspace, memory space, CPU time and write them off against the minuscule development effort needed to fix this common complaint about your platform.
@SlackHQ I joined a new workspace on slack for iOS. I switched accounts to my old workspace and behold ALL my channels are gone. I asked bot and nothing came out it. Please help me. I have an ongoing task in one of the channels and I need to update my team on the progress
why @SlackHQ doesn't remember my design settings and always bright and weird when I login :-(
@stowball @SlackHQ I assumed you opted into it. I was surprised by it at first, but it appears to resolve a lot of issues like searching for people. I’m kinda digging it.
.@github mobile for iOS feature request, Share action that lets you log an issue while you are testing your deployed site or app. use case: take screenshot while you are in app/site, share via the action like positing a message in @SlackHQ
