Like it or not, Emojis have established a stronghold in the workplace lexicon. Tiny little images that convey humor, sarcasm, and help lighten up a difficult moment when more than words are needed. If a photo is worth a thousand words, an Emoji is worth at least a hundred.

Now you can use them inside Intervals when updating tasks, posting project notes, and more. Today’s most popular operating systems already support Emojis, so we’ve simply updated the advanced text editor to enable them in every Intervals account. Whether your team is remote or sitting in the same room, this small, but useful, update can help improve communication.

How to use Emojis in Intervals:

  1. As you are typing your text, type a colon (:) and the Emojis contextual menu will appear
    See animation below. 
  2. Click on the smiley faced Emoji icon in the editor toolbar.
    See animation below.
  3. Use OS commands.
    Windows: Windows key + period (.)
    macOS: Control + Command + space
