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.

Really disappointed to know that this was pushed back to the backlog.
Darn. Was hoping for an update. I've been working with faculty and they would love to see this.
I too upvote this request. Would be immensely useful.
Could we get, at least an estimate, of when this will reach WIP level?
:( I am disappointed that this was pushed back to the backlog.
Just adding my voice to this request. My entire team is working remotely right now and this would be such a benefit to us.
Somebody said that Slack can do this, but not really. Pinned messages just roll off with the rest. Yes, they are highlighted, but after a couple of new posts they are no longer visible and we found with the Plus plan, we have no way to override any channel member from unpinning the message. Kind of useless. The message really needs to remain at the top of the scroll view, with new messages scrolling underneath it. Something akin to a Twitter pin. And yes, this is overdue. With people relying on virtual room collaboration with products like Slack and Teams more than ever, it's become more important.
Hi, this is an interesting feature as demanded by End Users. Hope to see it soon.

Please add this feature. We have moved to a remote first working model and plan to stay this way even after COVID-19 has passed.
This means we're making more and more use of asynchronous, written communication as opposed to synchronous meetings, because we've found that too many video calls leaves many of the team feeling drained.
As a result of this find ourselves creating channels for specific purposes, particularly around conversations or processes where regular updates are required. Within these channels we often want to pin a message at the top of the pane with links to related documentation (designs, shaping outputs, customer feedback, Sharepoint folder links, etc.).
This means that everyone can easily find information they need without having to search, manage bookmarks themselves, etc.
You haven't posted any update on this since September last year so can you please let us know what's going on?
With so many now working remotely I'd suggest this needs to jump quite a long way up the priority list.
Please please please make this possible. It's so annoying that even Announcements get lost in a channel with no way to see only them.
That's weird, I thought I saw this feature in a demo recently, as if it was coming soon? I can't remember where that was though. Useful, I know...
Back to IRC it is, then.
any update here
Yes, would be soooo useful!!
Slack can do it
So important for teams needing a terms of reference, mission/vision, contents list, etc. No brainer for me.
In addition... Pinning should exempt from any data retention policy
This should be a priority...
