A participant with the Instructor, Guest Instructor, or Assistant role may pin another participant to a pane on the stage by clicking the pin icon that appears when hovering over that participant.
Clicking the pin icon will toggle between Unpinned and Pinned:
Pinning a participant to a pane will keep them in that pane on the stage until either:
The user is unpinned, which makes them eligible to be removed if someone else speaks
The stage configuration is changed (e.g. by moving to the next activity in the timeline)
Another participant is dragged into the pane currently occupied by the pinned participant
The pinned participant is dragged to a new pane
When a participant is pinned:
They cannot use the 'Remove' button to take themselves off stage.
They will be kept on stage if the instructor uses the 'Shuffle' button
Sometimes participants are automatically pinned, such as when featuring a breakout group.
