What To Do With Slack Emoji When It Is Live
A well-placed emoji can spice up your conversation and make you react to activities. Some are almost memorable. Distribute them to answers in conversations and add them in response to a message in one of your channels.
Search for a custom emoji
After you've created the emoji, you can search for the name again. You do not have to add the colons to search for your emoji. You can also scroll through the creations of others to be inspired.
Delete your slack emoji.
Do not worry. If you screwed up, it will not be there forever. Just click on the "X" to remove your Slackmoji. However, you can not get rid of anyone. If there's a particularly inappropriate emoji, Slack says you can contact an administrator to get it removed.
