Using Emojis

If you're using a phone or a tablet, you can insert Emojis anywhere that uses text, just like when writing a message to friends.

However, not everyone knows that you can also bring up an Emoji keyboard on your laptop or computer.

Here's how:

Mac keyboard

You can bring up the emoji keyboard on a Mac by pressing CTRL + CMD + Space simultaneously.

Windows keyboard

You can bring up the Emoji keyboard in Windows by either
Holding Windows + ; (semi-colon)
or Windows + . (full stop)

Here's an example of how you can add an Emoji to the name of a class:

And here's how that would look on the booking page:

Emojis are a great way to differentiate classes or items on your schedule, especially if you offer the voucher workaround, items or pre-recorded video content

You can use them anywhere you type text, such as:

  • Event name

  • Event description

  • Booking confirmation message

  • Ticket name

  • Ticket description

  • Page title

  • Page description
    etc.
