We use Slack in my workplace and while it is usually a beneficial communication tool, there are two little details that make using it quite laborious: 1. signing in/ out: there is no way to retain the slack site name or my user name, so that all I need to do is input my password and sign back in ... I prefer to logout every night but the process of logging back in every day is very time-consuming and frustrating. there are enough other apps/ sites where user names can be retained that I find it confusing that Slack does not provide this option; 2. statuses once logged in: it would be very nice if Slack (again, like a myriad of other IM Apps) would have the option to show that a user is "here," is logged in, but is simply "away" ... the fact that we are either "available" or not is very confusing - we cannot tell when someone is "away" if that means that they are not here at all, or just not available at the moment... more visibility via multi-tiered statuses such as those available via Jabber or Skype (online/available, here but away, offline/ logged off, etc.) would make it much easier to understand what another user's availability actually is. (On a related note, the customization allowed in "Do Not Disturb" mode is something I have been very grateful for since it's arrival - thank you for that!) Thank you for listening... one very positive thing I have noticed is that you all respond quickly and do appear to listen to user feedback, which is greatly appreciated. <p>Hello!</p> <p>We use Slack in my workplace and while it is usually a beneficial communication tool, there are two little details that make using it quite laborious:</p> <ol> <li> <p>signing in/ out: there is no way to retain the slack site name or my user name, so that all I need to do is input my password and sign back in &hellip; I prefer to logout every night but the process of logging back in every day is very time-consuming and frustrating. there are enough other apps/ sites where user names can be retained that I find it confusing that Slack does not provide this option;</p></li> <li> <p>statuses once logged in: it would be very nice if Slack (again, like a myriad of other IM Apps) would have the option to show that a user is &#34;here,&#34; is logged in, but is simply &#34;away&#34; &hellip; the fact that we are either &#34;available&#34; or not is very confusing - we cannot tell when someone is &#34;away&#34; if that means that they are not here at all, or just not available at the moment&hellip; more visibility via multi-tiered statuses such as those available via Jabber or Skype (online/available, here but away, offline/ logged off, etc.) would make it much easier to understand what another user&#39;s availability actually is.

Hello!

We use Slack in my workplace and while it is usually a beneficial communication tool, there are two little details that make using it quite laborious:

  1. signing in/ out: there is no way to retain the slack site name or my user name, so that all I need to do is input my password and sign back in … I prefer to logout every night but the process of logging back in every day is very time-consuming and frustrating. there are enough other apps/ sites where user names can be retained that I find it confusing that Slack does not provide this option;

  2. statuses once logged in: it would be very nice if Slack (again, like a myriad of other IM Apps) would have the option to show that a user is "here," is logged in, but is simply "away" … the fact that we are either "available" or not is very confusing - we cannot tell when someone is "away" if that means that they are not here at all, or just not available at the moment… more visibility via multi-tiered statuses such as those available via Jabber or Skype (online/available, here but away, offline/ logged off, etc.) would make it much easier to understand what another user's availability actually is. (On a related note, the customization allowed in "Do Not Disturb" mode is something I have been very grateful for since it's arrival - thank you for that!)

Thank you for listening… one very positive thing I have noticed is that you all respond quickly and do appear to listen to user feedback, which is greatly appreciated.
