allow any emoji as a reaction, not just thumbs up

Slack has this: get.slack.help/hc/en-us/articles/206870317-..

        I switched from Slack to Teams and this is the feature that makes me want Slack back

        This would be really helpful, we did this constantly in slack and it didnt disrupt the flow of conversation. Now, all of the emojis are done via reply and are HUGE and take up way too much space.

        Our organization uses this a lot with Slack currently. Supervisors are able to react with eyeballs, letting the analysts know their question was seen and is being reviewed. Analysts are able to react with check marks when completing requests from supervisors. Quick polls can be made by instructing people to react with red or green dot to vote. Simple things like this not only help our workflow, but add a bit of fun as well.

        I don't emails that you're not doing anything either. Honestly Microsoft Teams is the worst product with the worst support. :\

        It's not overly helpful to get email telling me there's no update. We aren't using Teams anymore but I don't want to "remove my support from this idea to stop receiving these emails" because it's still a good idea. How come I can't just unwatch this issue?

        Adding emjoi , Microsoft have resource constraint. I was thinking after so postive feedback you will highly prioritize it.

        Not only Slack, but FB have same feature - people can directly react on messages and not in new message

        It would be awesome to have something like in facebook where you can 'like' a post with 'love', 'angry', 'wow', 'sad' etc.
        It always feels awkward to like something where someone writes about things that don't work and/or are frustrating etc.

        Just do it already! :)
        For starters at least with some emojis like are on Skype. And please add it also into chat. Its frustrating be able to react in one part of the single application and not be able in another.

        my team makes a lot of use of slacks react and custom emote options, including multiple people "voting" on a reaction; if enough of slacks features are taken ill fully dump slack in favour of teams
