Terms you should know
Before we dive in any further, let's define a few terms.
An Outage refers to an issue that affects people connecting to Slack.
An Incident refers to a problem with a specific feature that’s not working properly (e.g., notifications not working, or slow file uploads).
A Notice means there's an issue with a third-party service or Slack partner that may affect your experience (e.g., a major internet service provider is having an outage).
Maintenance refers to scheduled downtime for Slack in which customers are given advance notice. This happens very rarely.
After we’ve resolved an issue, we’ll publish a technical summary to the Slack Status site within 24 hours. The technical summary includes specific details about the issue, such as an overview of what happened, how customers were impacted, and how our internal systems were affected.
