Teams lets me react to people's messages with the usual expected set of emojis, but I just can't imagine an appropriate use of ♥️ in a business context.

Ok it seems a lot of people use it freely where I'd stick with a thumbs up to mean the same thing. That's cool!

I'm going to stick to bring restrained about it though, because as a middle-aged dude with the word "senior" in his job title, it's easy for the intention behind my actions and the perception of those actions by others to be wildly different. No biggie.

👍 you all!

@mike I've seen people use other colours than red for the hearts to avoid the whole romance implication

@wobin @mike Teams is pretty limited, different colours are not an option.

@mike I have been mildly amused that some of our senior men will use it - but strictly for “that is very good”, not on anything that could be, umm, misconstrued ;)
