Add custom emoji

Emoji are fun, and they're functional too. Use them to enhance your messages, add reactions, or copy messages with the Reacji channeler app. Whatever your needs might be, you can customize your workspace by creating your own custom emoji. 

Note: Some workspaces and orgs may choose to restrict custom emoji uploads to Workspace or Org Owners or Admins. If you’re unable to upload custom emoji, contact a Workspace or Org Owner for help.
