In this article, lets see how to use Emoji’s to capture the data in Portal’s Forms.

It’s very simple to achieve. All you need to do is to set the Dynamics ‘Option Set’ field’s ‘Label’ with ‘Emoji’.

Below is the ‘HOW’ part.

Create an ‘Option Set’ field with ‘Emojis’:

  • In Dynamics, create a new ‘Option Set’ Field with 2 options
  • In the Option’s ‘Label’ paste the Emoji.

  • Place this ‘Option Set’ field on the Dynamics Form and View which are being referred in your portal’s ‘Entity Form’ and ‘Entity List’.

Make ‘Options’ to render side by side in Portal:

  • By default, ‘Option Set’ renders as ‘Drop down’ control in Portal.
  • To show the ‘Options’ as Side by Side, add a new ‘Metadata’ to ‘Entity Form’.
