Adding Reactions to Workspace Content (Web) ๐Ÿ”ฅ

You can add reactions to content in the workspace, allowing for easy and fun participation and feedback. Reactions are similar to emojis, and provide simple symbols to express your response to a workspace asset. :fire: :+1:

Note: You can not add reactions to the following workspace assets:

  • Textboxes
  • Canvases
  • Browsers

To add a reaction:

  1. Click the desired workspace asset. A blue boundary box surrounds it, and a toolbar of options displays.
  2. Click the Screen Shot 2022-01-14 at 4.39.40 PM (Reactions) icon in the toolbar.

  1. A menu of available reactions displays. Click to select one.

  1. The reaction/emoji you select displays on the highlighted asset. In the below example, the heart icon was selected.

Your reactions will display with a blue background (pictured above), while the reactions of others are displayed with a black background. Multiple reactions can be displayed on a single asset.

To remove a reaction, click the emoji on the asset, or click the Screen Shot 2022-01-14 at 4.39.40 PM(Reactions) icon in the asset toolbar again.

Hiding Reactions

You can disable reactions in a workspace, which hides them from view. This is useful as a temporary measure when giving a presentation, for example.

Note: Reactions are disabled at the user level. This means they will be hidden for you, but not other collaborators in the workspace.

To hide reactions:

  1. Click the Screen Shot 2022-01-14 at 4.50.06 PM (more options) icon at the top left of the workspace.
  2. A context menu opens. Hover over the View settings option.
  3. Another context menu opens. Click the Show reactions option to move the toggle to the grey โ€œoffโ€ position.


Reactions are now disabled in the workspace for you. This means that existing reactions are hidden.
Note: you can still add new reactions, but they will not be visible until the Show reactions setting is enabled again.
