Microsoft Teams recently released an update that allows anyone in a Teams chat to pin a message they deem important at the top of the chat window. Given that many chats are full of not-so-important content, the pinning feature is excellent in highlighting the most important issues in a conversation.
The new pinning feature allows any chat member to pin and unpin a specific chat message to the top of the chat window for all members to see. You can highlight a Teams chat message that you and your colleagues often refer to or work on.
People on the chat can click on the pinned message to go to the original message in the chat thread. Earlier, you could only pin one message at a time. However, the mid-February 2022 update allows chat members to pin multiple messages.
Pinning a message on Microsoft Teams is very simple. Here is the step-by-step procedure to follow:
Your message will pin at the top of the Teams chat window. The pinned message will show the name of the person who wrote it, not the person who pinned it. You’ll also see the first few words of the message.
When you pin a Teams message, it’ll appear on the top of the chat window for everyone you’re communicating with, making it an excellent feature when you want people to focus on a specific massage. After addressing what a pinned was all about, you can readily unpin a Teams message.
Once a pinned message has served its purpose, you’ll want to take it down from the pinned list to create space for other important information. Unpinning a message on Microsoft Teams is pretty straightforward. Here are simple steps to follow:
Pinning a message makes it more noticeable to all members of a specific channel. The feature comes in handy when running a huge channel where important chats get lost in other less-essential messages.
Once you’ve pinned a message in Teams, chat members will have the option to see all the pinned messages at the top of the chat window. You can then unpin the message after it has served its purpose.
