Add a emoji

/ Add and edit Items to a board / Add a emoji

Emojis can be used for emphasis, to express emotions, or simply to make the board more visually appealing.

To use the described feature on an iPadOS or macOS device, first extend the shelf on the left side of the screen. On an iPhone, the shelf extends from the bottom instead. Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Accessing the Emoji Item: Tap on the emoji item located in the shelf. This will cause the item to animate and move to the center of the canvas.
  2. Editing the Emoji: Once the emoji is in the center, a keyboard is presented to select the emoji.  If desired, users may double tap the emoji to bring the keyboard back up to change.
  3. Position the Emoji: Emojis are sticky, and will stay in position once placed atop another item. 

Emoji Tips

  • Creating Similar Items: To quickly create an item similar to one you've just made, use the keyboard shortcut ⇧⌘N.
  • Connecting Items: To connect items, long-press on an item until it glows. Then, drag a string/connector to another item. Alternatively, select two items and connect them using the pin button in the navigation bar. There's also a setting in the board's settings to choose the type of connections.
  • Automation:  Use shortcuts to automate adding emojis to boards.
