    • Highlight that text, then click the chain icon

    • Paste the url into the box provided

      • Text to display will show the text highlighted before clicking the chain icon

II. Emojis

Emojis are a great way to add a little personality to a message, or to react to someone else's message.

Emojis can be found in two places on discussions:

  1. Within the message box to add an emoji to a message

  2. Below another message to react to the message using an emoji

    1. Click on an emoji that's already there if you have the same sentiment, or click the emoji icon to add your own

    2. If you added an emoji by mistake, click the emoji again to remove it

Working with emojis:

  1. Click on the emoji icon to see the icon options; scroll through to see options; the more frequently used icons will appear at the bottom

  2. Search for an emoji - type any text into the emoji search box; select any option that fits your sentiment

  3. Search for additional icons that are already there - such as a heart - to have various options (note that my previous selection - party emoji - is now at the bottom as frequently used)

Have fun with it!
