How to add custom emojis to Slack
Welcome toÂ TNW Basics, a collection of tips, guides, and advice on how to easily get the most out of your gadgets, apps, and other stuff.
Using Slack can get a bit tedious when youâre in front of the screen the whole day. Thatâs why, at TNW, we add custom emojis to slack to make it more fun. Weâve added tons of new emojis including some of my colleagues, Mix, Mar, and Gigi.
Jealous? Now you want your own emoji in your teamâs slack too, right? Iâve got your back covered. Hereâs how to make your very own emoji:
- Open the Slack on your desktopÂ (app/website).
- Click on your teamâs workspace name, and then click on Customize Slack.
- On the next window, click on âAdd Customized Emojiâ.
- Upload the image you want to make into an emoji, and assign it a shortcut phrase to display it in Slack.
- Click Save.
I just added a Keanue emoji using this method, because it makes everything better.
