UPDATE 31/10/2016: Fellow MVP Darrell Webster has posted a video that shows an easier way of performing this by using the “soft” keyboard built into Windows 10.
If you’re a Yammer user, you might notice that some people have emojis in their name or job title – usually to denote things like travelling or on holidays.
Unfortunately, there’s no real documented way on how to do it, so I thought I’d write up a quick post.
Step 1: use Chrome as it provides the best way to inspect web elements
Step 3: right-click the small version of the emoji on the page and select Inspect
Step 4: look for the <span class….> text that relates to what you’ve just clicked on (it should already be highlighted)
Step 5: right-click the highlighted text, select Copy and then Copy element
Step 6: navigate to the properties of your Yammer profile (https://www.yammer.com/YOUR-DOMAIN-NAME-HERE/#/account/profile_info)
Step 7: Paste what you’ve copied
Step 8: save your profile, and admire your work
If you want to get more descriptive you can put some more content in there around the emoji:
