With emoji actions, Troopr lets people in your Slack workspace use multiple emojis to create or update Jira issues from Slack.
Workspace administrators can now create custom emoji actions. When users add the emoji to a Slack message, it would trigger a Troopr action.
To get started, go to Troopr Webapp -> Home-> Emoji Actions. Click on "New Emoji Action '' button.
Select any emoji and state its purpose to give clarity to your team members. Also choose the emoji action type (issue create/ issue update).
With issue creation action, users can convert any Slack message into a Jira issue. Administrators can choose to create the emoji action using channel defaults or select a specific project and issuetype. Administrators can also set custom field values for each emoji action. Issue creation emoji action works on project and support channels in Slack.
