Shrugging on Slack

How to add a shrug to a Slack message

Ever wanted to convey “I dunno lol” in a Slack message? You can by simply appending a shrug (¯\_(ツ)_/¯) onto the end of your message!

To do this type /shrug at the beginning of a message and it will append the emoji to the end.

It won’t work if you type /shrug anywhere but the start of the message.

This is part of our Slack mini series, where we quickly explain simple and more advanced Slack features. Excellent for beginners or if you just need a quick refresher.

If there is a feature you would like us to cover please drop us an email or tweet.
