Collaborate Ultra : pin chat messages

    It would be great if chat messages could be pinned (with possibility to allow all participants to pin, or only presenter or only moderator.

    2 main cases I can think of :


    There can be a lot going on in a chat during the session, and a professor without a moderator can have a hard time following without interrupting the course.

    Pinning messages enable him to mark questions he wants to come back to later to answer them.

    For students/participants they often answer each others questions, so pinning could be a way to bring to the professor's attention those which didn't find answers yet.

    Also the chat contains both social interactions and questions, pins would be a good way to cut through the noise to flag questions among the flow of social conversations.


    Besides, now that the chat is available in the recording, it could be used as a handy way to index some parts of the session. Like the professor could write in capital letters section titles and pin them (for example  LESSON then EXERCISE then Q&A ) . then those pins could be seen at the top of the recording's chat to facilitate navigation.
