Can my teammates use Emoji Shortcuts?

They cannot use your exact shortcuts, they will need to configure Allma Emoji Shortcuts for themselves.

First, they will need to install Allma, and then follow the rest of the configuration guide here: https://allma.io/docs/emoji-shortcut-configuration-guide

Will my teammates see what I'm doing? Does Allma post publicly?

Here's a list of what your teammates can see:

  • The emojis you react to messages with
  • Any action that results in a public message
    • Eject
  • Any button associated with an action that posts publicly
    • Gather context
    • Share with context
    • Summarize thread

Here's what your teammates cannot see:

  • Allma's private responses to you, confirming an action is complete
  • The emojis you configured, and the actions they trigger

Do Emoji Shortcuts work everywhere?

No, Emoji Shortcuts only work in channels that Allma is a member of. Allma will join public channels when you try to use your Emoji Shortcuts. Allma will ask you for permission to join any private channels where you try to use your Emoji Shortcuts. Allma cannot join any DMs or Group Chats.

How do I set up Jira?

Jira is still in Beta, you can follow the Jira configuration guide here: https://allma.io/docs/jira-cloud

Please note we do not fully support Jira at this time and will be shipping updates to this integration soon.

I used an emoji shortcut - can I undo it?

After an emoji shortcut is used, it can't be undone. You might be able to delete the result (message, ticket, etc), but it depends on the action you performed.
