Accept emoji in text field (items)

I work with social media and use the Podio to manage workflow to create and approve content. Many times the posts for Facebook and other social medias have an emoji in the content but in the Podio item creation, the text fields dont accept this. When we save the item the emoji and all content after his are removed.

Before save item (I copy/paste text with emoji in text field):


After save/update item:

Hi Ednilson and Garret,

We upgraded the Emoji's in Podio today to allow you to use them in the Text Field.

Hope this helps!

Tsaki, please share a bit more information in a support ticket we'll be happy to assist. The emojis are based on unicode, so it is important your operating system support unicode for them to work!

May I ask why, when you 'upgraded' the emojis in Podio you changed them all to these ghastly Facebook-esque, kid-with-a-crayon style emojis?

My team are all young, creative types, and were all active users of emojis in the chat and comments fields of assets and projects (which was surprisingly pleasing), but since the 'upgrade' suddenly they're not used at all, across the board, because they look completely hideous.

I know this is nitpicking, but could we please have the non overtly kiddy emojis back? Just as they are still in the emoji selection pane and cheat sheet you provide, and just about every phone on Earth.

Thanks :)

If you are on more recent versions of Mac OS, you can access all of your emojis from the menu bar under "Edit > Emoji & Symbols".
