It is a function where you can suggest changes to your study plan (e.g. if you have received an exemption). Changes always require an approval

The Free edit mode can be found in the study plan's selection assistant. The selection assistant wil appear when you click the different headers of your study plan. Free edit mode can be found at every hierarchy level of the study plan. ​

Some changes were made to the degree program's structure during last yearYou need to create a new study plan and select it as a primary plan. The degree program's structure changes were made due to technical reasons. 

If I have already graduted as a bachelor do I need to do the study plan for a bachelor's degree in Sisu?

You don't need to fill in the bachelor's part in your Sisu study plan if you have already graduated as a bachelor. You can do only the master's degree part of your study plan.

I can't see all my completed credits in my Sisu study plan or add them to it

All completed credits should be in Sisu at the latest in April 2021. 

Due to technical issues, some of the credits have been transfered to Sisu as individual studies and for that reason they do not appear on the left side "Add to the plan" tab nor as completed in study plan. 
These studies can added to the study plan by choosing the module and free edit. In the assistant window on the right you can find "Add a course you have already completed" title. See detailed instructions at Applying for approval and Free edit mode#Freeeditmode

Does my study plan need to be approved before I can register for courses?​

No, approval of the study plan is not required for course registration in Sisu.

You can add extra studies to the electives in the study plan or change the courses in the electives. If you add more courses to the electives than there should be, the status of the study plan might be "selections against the rules". However, this does not stop you from registering for the course.
