Slack was down. Did you get any S#!t done?

Just curious how much Slack being down impacted your day today. Feel free to fill out the poll above, and or reply with your anecdotes.

As for me, I was dreading having to change my Lync status message from "Please use Slack" to "Available". My team grudgingly went back to using email for important communications for a few hours.

Didn't make a lot of difference to me. I was spending my morning getting my head into react, so I wouldn't have been paying attention to slack in any case.

Not an issue, ever. Currently use Lync, and most people object to it.

Tried Skype For Business (formerly Lync). It was useless, so we gave it up.

*shrug* It works well on the two fronts needed - messaging and screen sharing.
