Unicode Character Marker in AGOL?

Is it possible to use a Unicode character like U+1F32E ( taco emoji) as a character marker symbol in AGOL instead of using a custom image from a URL? An AGOL solution is preferred to ArcMap or ArcGIS Pro (suggested by How To: Use international characters as a marker symbol in ArcMap). The Unicode character worked in Map Note (text) but not ideal with many features.

Thanks, Cynthia Paloma

Hi Cynthia Paloma‌,

It is not currently possible to use the custom symbol without linking to a URL. I recommend up-voting this idea that is currently marked as In Product Plan: https://community.esri.com/ideas/6835 

Hope that helps,

Thanks for the suggestion, I upvoted the custom symbol galleries for AGOL suggestion (from 2013!)
