PinTo pin a section, select a section of a course(s) on your Calendar View and a red pin will appear on it. Pinning a section will save the section only on your calendar view. Once a section is pinned, as you select and drag days and times to block out, this will not move that section you have pinned. Only the other section(s) of course(s) on the Calendar View will be changed and will view the next available section(s) for the course(s) that you plan to schedule for.
