Slack Is Back Up, After Breaking Workplace Conversations
(CTN News) – Each and every day, thousands of people like you communicate and coordinate with one another via Slack, regardless of where they are.
This is regardless of whether they work from home or have found themselves once again braving the office. Many of us now use Slack as an integral part of our workflow.
This is to the point of not knowing what to do when the platform is down. This is because it has become such an integral part of our workflow that we don’t even know what to do.
As a result of an error message that appeared earlier today, there was an issue with Slack.
The conversation threads did not load properly, resulting in a failure of the application to function.
This morning, Slack informed its users in an email that it had identified a problem with threads shortly after 11 a.m. Eastern Standard Time.
It has been working on it. We found that initially very few public details were shared about the service.
This meant that it would not be able to update its list of threads with the latest messages until the messages had been viewed by users.
This left them unaware that significant changes had been made to the service.
Having refreshed the pages for a few minutes, I noticed that there seemed to be some relief in the situation. In spite of this, Slack continued to report ongoing issues even after the issue had been resolved for hours after it had been reported.
Slack reports that as of 12:45pm Eastern Time, all should now be back to normal by the end of the day, according to their reports.
There is no explanation from the company as to what exactly happened wrong.
However, the company does mention that if any lingering bugs persist in the application, users should try a full refresh if the problems persist.
Why Slack vs WhatsApp?
Both apps are popular for a reason and contain many features that will help your team communicate better and be more productive.
It all boils down to what your team needs: Slack is better for internal communication. WhatsApp is great for informal communication within your team.
