Bug Fixes
• We got so excited about your emoji we kept requesting them, particularly at the moment you switched channels. This caused all manner of slowness. We've since bottled our enthusiasm, and now request emoji exactly one (1) time.

Good but could be great :)

Like this chat app a lot. Saves me a lot of time with its built-in features as well as the available integrations. Also a big fan of the styling, makes work chat less boring!

However, noticed with recent update that the "Slack Helper" processes are chugging CPU time, so much so that the fans on my top-spec Macbook Pro run on medium to high. Didn’t have this issue before so I’m sure this is an optimization they just need to make.

One thing I would LOVE to see is the ability to “sleep” a group, so that it didn’t have to be always running in the background. For someone like me, who uses Slack for 9 different groups, having each of those chats actively run leads to each spinning up a Slack Helper process that consumes a fair amount of CPU. Would love to be able to “sleep” less important chats e.g. disable background updates for those groups until I explicitly “un-sleep” it. This would primarily be used for chats of lower priority than others.

Interesting idea about "sleeping" a workspace! You've given us some great food for thought here— thanks for sharing this with us!

Very useful, but needs folders to organize channels

Eric R..

My team has been using Slack for about a year. We use Slack a lot and it has been incredibly helpful. However, the inability to organize channels into hierarchical folders, or even one level of folders, is a serious productivity killer. We have about 50 channels, so hunting for the right place to put information can be a hassle. We already use prefixes (e.g., dev_XXX or partner_YYY), but that isn’t a great solution, and it does little to reduce the visual and cognitive clutter. The team has been otherwise helpful with bugs we’ve encountered, but hasn’t been able to move the needle on folders. Hopefully, they will get to this important feature. Otherwise, Slack is great.

Thank you so much for the feedback on this. We will be sure to bring this forward for future consideration.

Great Business Communications App

Works great to create “Channels” which are ad-hoc groups that can be messaged at once. The channels can be changed or deleted when needed. The Mac app works well with notification center but a recent bug (Dec 2017) is REALLY annoying. Replies in the notification center now go nowhere. U P D A T E ! Bug squashed as of Jan 2018. Replies are acting as they should. Thanks!!! BTW Notification Center can be set to make Slack notifications persistent so you never miss a message. I can’t find a way to do that on colleagues running Windows 7. Also its nice to know that the developer listens to customers (paying or not) so if you expand to the paid tier you’ll get good service.

We're working on this bug at the moment, and we hope to have it fixed in an upcoming release. We're very sorry for the wait time on this!
