Ability to pin message/files/articles shared within a channel.
Guys, please add pinned items for channels. We often pin important articles/messages/files so that the whole team can see it. Very important!
Due to prioritization of other work-items this has been moved to the backlog. We will update when it is being actively worked on again.
Hopefully this is actually released this month! Much needed feature
Is there still no update for this?
Wow how is this not a thing!!!
Looks like its in development with release for next month!

I found a workaround. But it currently only works in channels, not in 1-to-1, meeting or group chats.
Get the link to the message thread (this is the part that is only possible in channels). Add a *Wiki* tab and paste the link there. Clicking the link will take you to the thread. To make it more intuitive, name the tab Pinned or 📌.
this is really important for teachers- once a few students reply, the original instructions disappear and children/teenagers don't think to scroll up so you're constantly reposting the original information. Yes there are assignments etc. but a simple pin function would be very welcome.
this should be hit 1000 comment and critic for them to work maybe... or should i posting every day?? or every 1 hour??
once again we needed.. please add the pin message in the channel..

Basic free chat software has this function, it really cannot be that difficult to implement the code..have an intern do it in an afternoon
We have needed this feature heavily this year, please bump it up again!
Please observe that there are multiple user voice pages and tech community forums requesting this feature.
Educators need this feature. We needed it four months ago. Please remove it from the backlog immediately!
Please remove this from the backlog and prioritize. We need to be able to pin multiple items in conversations. thank you! Plainly visible channel descriptions would also be useful.

We need this! (along with plainly visible channel descriptions)
And yes, it should allow multiple items to be pinned.
Whyyy is thisss takinggg sooo looonnnggg???
I agree this is critical. Scrolling through thousands of lines of text to find the link someone sent me to a file we are working on is tedious and time consuming.
To those who, like me, want a quick, semi-serviceable workraround, I've found that saving the message (hover over, three dots, "save") results in a handy bookmark that can be retrieved by clicking your profile picture.
I imagine this is a pretty limited solution, though. it applies to you, not the whole conversation, first of all. Secondly, it takes a few clicks to get back to it. While it isn't miles and miles of scrolling, it's still more than a single click to the pinned note. Luckily it seems to be capable of storing more than one.
This is something we have in Slack. It's a bit odd that at 6861 votes this is not something MS think we want?

...oh to be a fly on the wall around the dev team. Seriously? This is as basic as it should get feature wise.
Warren, any chance of an update mate?
Backlog now.... incredible. This is so important to keep track on the most important topics!

If anyone is using Teams, at scale, across hundreds of ee's, not having this is a killer!

Definitely need this feature for hosting online conferences... people need to know where to go when they land on a channel for the first time.
