February Slack Outage
In February, Slack users were hit with a major outage, the collaboration tools company confirmed on a status page on Slack’s website.
At 11:24 a.m. Pacific Time on the day, Slack – a Salesforce subsidiary – announced the issue resolved.
“We‘ve resolved the issue, and all impacted customers should now be able to access Slack,” according to a post on Slack’s status page. “You may need to reload Slack (Cmd/Ctrl + Shift + R) to see the fix on your end. If that doesn‘t work, try clearing cache (Help > Troubleshooting > Clear Cache and Restart from the app menu). Thanks for bearing with us and we apologize for the disruption to your work day!”
Slack’s first message on the issue came at 6:25 a.m. Pacific. ”We’re investigating the issue where Slack is not loading for some users,” according to the message. “We’re looking into the cause and will provide more information as soon as it‘s available.”
Almost 11,000 reports of a Slack outage were logged on Downdetector at 6:19 a.m. Tuesday.
