Wishlist/Enhancements to 9.1SP8 cross-listing/merge enrollments

I'm coming up with a list of enhancements we'd like to see for the current 9.1SP8 cross-listing/merge enrollments feature.  We're coming from the Bb Section Merge Tool (SMT), so some of it comes from features we've used there.

  • Allow instructors to create the merge 
  • Allow one-to-many feeds (e.g., one source site could be the child of multiple target sites) 
  • Document some migration path between the SMT and the new course merge 
  • Instructors > My Courses module should indent the child sites (and allow for expansion/collapse) or allow child sites to be hidden completely from view 

  • Tools that communicate with students (Announcements, Messages, Send Email) should be able to use Child Course membership to select audience 
  • Adaptive Release should be able to use Child Course membership 
  • Groups should be able to use Child Course membership when creating groups 
  • Grade Center / SmartViews - allow criteria Child Course ID condition "is blank" or "does not contain" (which is useful if you are merging enrollments into section 01 for instance, and want a smartview of section 01) 

Before I submit, I wanted to see if anyone else had things on their wish list...
