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.
