MC317764: Pin a chat message

When this will happen

We will begin rolling this out in mid-February and expect to complete rollout late April (previously late February).

How this will affect your organization

Any member of a chat will be able to pin/unpin any specific chat message to the top of the chat header, for all members to see. Users can click on the pinned message to go to the original message in the chat thread. Currently, only a single message can be pinned at a time.
