Introduce a feature inside channels, to pin a post to the top
At present, it's very easy to miss seeing an important post in a sea of posts, on a channel that sees a lot of traction. There should ideally be an option to pin important posts to the top of the channel, so that it's not inconspicuous.

looks like this is getting some attention now via this thread: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16911532-ability-to-pin-message-files-articles-shared-withi
For our team it would be useful for keeping instructions to update a spreadsheet at the top of the post list.

Please, I need that! Too many posts get lost so easy

This would be a HUGE improvement for our team. For example, we maintain a "Clarifications/Updates" thread. The information posted there needs to be seen by ever member as soon as it is posted. having that thread get lost in the channel is often the cause of errors in our projects - once the thread is collapsed they don't see the entire thread of important clarifications and it is buried by other posts.

This would be cool to see. Our team members shift at a fairly high rate, and having important posts pinned to the top of the channel would be a big help for them to get caught up on the biggest issues the team is working on.

it could also be used as more detailed information about channel - e.g. rules how to post

The Polly bot is a good example of why this would help. Being able to pin it to the top of the channel means it won't get lost in the conversation.
