File hosting service Dropbox includes a custom emoji picker within its collaborative document-editing service Dropbox Paper.
Dropbox Paper’s custom emoji picker is accessed by entering a colon (:) into the body of a document.
This will prompt the emoji picker to appear, and users can then search emojis by entering text directly following the colon character (e.g. :heart).
Users are also able to add their own custom emoji characters to Dropbox Paper. At the bottom of the custom emoji picker, users can enter a custom shortcode that can be used to represent an uploaded image of their choosing. These shortcodes are then bookended by two colons (e.g. ::customemoji::).
As of July 2021 the platform comes with one default custom emoji character: the :cupcake:.
