On Monday, Oct. 5, many remote and in-office workers had their work day interrupted by an unexpected blip in what has become one of the most widely-used work communication tools: Slack. Forget productivity, because these tweets about Slack being down on Oct. 5 celebrate what’s basically the adult equivalent of a snow day. In response to an Elite Daily email inquiring about the outage, a Slack spokesperson said, "Our teams are aware and are investigating the issue. We know how important it is for people to stay connected and we are working hard to get everyone running as normal. For the latest updates please keep an eye on @slackstatus and status.slack.com."
Starting at 9:05 a.m. CST, Slack began posting about the issues on its status page, saying "Some users may be experiencing slowness with Slack in the desktop, browser and mobile at this time. The issue is impacting sending messages and troubles with API calls. Our team is looking into it and we will follow up with more updates in 30 minutes."
As of noon CST, the tech company revealed that they were still working on resolving the performance issues, which include problems with the search functionality, placing API calls, lost messages, and slow connectivity.
