Conferences - Invite by Section

    When you create a conference, you have can either invite all the members in the course or select each one by name.  Our instructors want to be able to have a conference with just the students in a particular section.  To do that, they have to pick each student one at a time, every time they have a conference.  In other parts of Canvas you can assign by section.  I would like my instructors to have the option of inviting people to a conference by section.  They use this feature for discussions, assignments and quizzes and need it for conferences as well.  I spoke with the team at Big Blue Button and was told it is a Canvas issue not a Big Blue Button issue.
