Users are unable to post to the #general channel
On August 23, 2023 from 4:30 PM PDT to August 31, 2023 11:26 PM PDT, some users experienced an issue posting messages in the designated #general channel of their workspace.
Our team identified that recent changes in our code broke some conditional logic and deprecated the preference that allows users to post in the #general channel.
We pushed out a fix and asked affected users to reload their Slack apps. This combination of steps resolved the issue.

Some users may be missing sidebar sections in Slack
On August 24, 2023 between 10:41 AM PDT to 4:10 PM PDT, channel sections were missing from some users' sidebars.
We determined that a recent update in code failed to process an older format of data objects coming from our cache.
While we reverted this change and saw the majority of the issue resolved, this action caused an issue localized to the new data format and some users were still affected.
Once we pushed a fix to normalize and handle all objects in the cache, channel sections were restored for all impacted users.
2:31 PM PST
Missing channel sections should now be restored for all affected users. You may need to reload Slack (Command/Control + R) for the fix to take effect. Thank you your continued patience while we worked to resolve this issue, and we apologize again for the disruption.

We've determined this issue isn't fully resolved, though some users may be seeing signs of improvement. We'll continue to provide updates as they become available.
Thank you for your patience while we sort out this issue.
