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!
Thank you for your feedback! We are updating this as “Partialy Done” as our first step to solving for pinned posts has been released! Pinned posts allows users from a team to pin a message for everyone in the channel to be able to easily reference. While any message can be pinnable, we expect our users to use this feature to pin information like channel guidelines or important announcements. We know this doesn’t solve all pinning scenarios, and that there is still a need to make this easier for users to find, especially within the message list. We will share another update as soon as it is available.

Very much agreed, especially when there is a leadership group and members who participate at varying degrees, it is helpful to keep your goals and objectives at top.
Yes, the ability to pin messages within a channel would be very helpful

I would see this being similar to the Yammer ability to "broadcast" messages. High visibility and great for announcements
Please add this functionality
Yeah, just make access for saved messages faster - below files icon for example or something.
Sergey Kostrukov commented
Also make please them optionally editable by everyone! so it could be an important announcement, or ongoing status which could be updated my anyone on the channel.
Imaging for example "Production outage" message with some wiki content, links, and anyone can contribute into this as status changes.
Please add pinning as a feature!!
Matthew Pope commented
Yes please!!! Slack can do it.... ;)
Patric Sachse commented
This - besides the missing native linux client - is one of the reasons we currently would rather like to stick to slack. This feature would be really appreciated!
Cyndi Major commented
It would also be great to have the ability to set an expiration date/time on the pinned item.
Martin DUggan commented
This would be a really good feature!
Jack C Buel commented
If not this, then then a view that shows all important messages.
Agreed. Sure, with Teams one can 'save' posts for later reference, but a 'public/channel pin' feature allows one post of info to be passively broadcast to all team members, and easily referenced in the future.
Christopher Westphal commented
It would help being able to pin critical outages or Broadcasts to the first thing a user sees when they load up that channel.
Paul Swartout commented
Agreed - this is a well used feature of slack and we would need this to move away
Expanding on this: as Rob said, pinning message threads in Channels would be great, especially if something big/important is said and we want to make sure everyone sees it, it'd be important.
Ability to pin web links is necessary too!
Robert Zhao commented
I want to further add that having the ability to pin a message in a thread is very important because it allows for quick Q/A style reading.
