Pin messages and bookmark links

You can pin messages and bookmark links in any channel or direct message (DM) for easy reference. Pinned messages are a great way to highlight existing messages in a conversation, while bookmarks make it easy to keep track of links. All members of a conversation can access pinned messages and bookmarks in the conversation header.
