The popular workplace communication service Slack came to a halt Wednesday after suffering a connectivity issue.

Slack is an acronym for ‘Searchable Log of All Conversation and Knowledge’, which was created to bring people together to streamline work, automate tasks and bring connect employees of companies.

Started in 2014 in Vancouver, there are more than 8 million users of Slack currently online.

According to Slack’s Twitter account, the company is looking into the connectivity issue but did not provide a reason for the outage.

Workspaces around the world are complaining of the outage; however, Europe may be back up and running.
