Pinned Post Best Practices
- We recommend pinning business-critical posts such as important alerts, business updates, event reminders, etc. so that all staff will be aware
- Pinning posts are also effective for announcing good news and positive stories
- As a best practice, we recommend pinning no more than 2-3 posts at a time and for no longer than 3-5 days each
- As there may be a number of Admins & Editors, it's important that you coordinate on the pinning of posts
