Slack: Massive disruption fixed after hours


The massive disruption to the Slack office communications service has largely been resolved. More than four hours after the first problems occurred, the US company announced that it had largely been restored. At first there were still problems with the integration of calendars and other apps. The causes remained unclear at first.

Slack had been paralyzed for hours by the disruption on Monday, the first working day of the new year. Among other things, users had problems logging in and sending messages. The failure had started on Monday afternoon European time – when the working day began in many places in the USA.

For Slack, the problems were also inconvenient because the company is currently in sales talks. The enterprise software giant Salesforce wants the acquisition announced in December to cost around 28 billion dollars.
