Pin messages

You can pin important messages to any conversation for easy reference. Pinned items are visible in the  Details section and are accessible to all members of a channel or direct message.  

How pinning works

  • Pin messages to add them to a conversation's Pinned section.
  • Pin files by pinning the original message the file was shared in.
  • Click the  pin icon to view all pinned items in a channel or direct message.
