Is this the emoji you're looking for?


Introducing emoji autocomplete – a feature that predicts the emoji you're searching when you type its name or shortcut into the editor. Activate the autocomplete menu by typing a ":" into the editor, and discover new emojis to personalize your pages, blog posts, and comments. It's that easy!

See Symbols, emojis and special characters for the latest updates.

Automate user management tasks with REST APIs


Enjoy greater flexibility in your work with new REST APIs to do the following user management tasks:

  • create a group

  • delete a group

  • add a user to a group

  • remove a user from a group

  • enable a user

  • disable a user

  • delete a user

This feature will be useful to admins looking to automate staff onboarding or off-boarding and to do security group synchronization activities.

See the REST API documentation for the new methods to use.
