Pin to top in Posts tab of a Channel is not sticking

New Contributor

I love that MS Teams now has the functionality to pin posts. This is especially helpful as we are looking to put a "virtual bulletin board" in place at my company. I would like to "pin" the bulletin board rules and how-to posts so they don't get buried in other posts when we launch.

 

However, when I do pin the message, it does not pin it to the top (or bottom since new posts are listed at the bottom) of the feed. All it does is add a green bar to the left of the message window and a small green thumbtack icon on the top right.

 

How do we actually pin this message to the top (or bottom) of a feed to ensure everyone sees it?

 

I have pinned these, but they are not pinned to the top or the bottom of the feed.  I have tested this in other Teams channels as well and the pin functionality just seems to add a green bar and pushpin - but doesn't actually pin it. I have also found out that other members can pin/unpin my posts.

If there's not a solution here, that's okay.  I will just have to put together a small Wiki tab with the rules and how-to.  It would just be nice that it worked as I think users want it to work...
