    You’ve got your work all-in-one-place but now you want more ways to organize it.

    Did you know there’s a way to organize your groups in Coast? If you access a certain group more than others and want to access it faster, you can “Pin” the group to the top of your chat list. Below your pinned groups, will be all the other groups you are a part of and they will continue to be sorted by the latest activity. You can always “Un-pin” the group by following the same steps! Groups are pinned per device, so you can customize your desktop and mobile experiences exactly how you want it. Here is a quick tutorial on how to pin a group:
    1. Tap on the group that you want to pin
    2. Go to the “Options” menu for the group by tapping on the name
    3. Here you will see an option to “Pin chat to the top of the list”
    4. Toggle this option on
    5. When you return to the chat list you will see a new section called ‘Pinned’ with any pinned chats just below it!
