    Currently the Announcement 'Post To' menu for a course in which only 1 section is enrolled provides menu options of "All Sections" or "name of course".   The name of course usually contains only the instructor, All sections contains all students enrolled in that one section.   For usability sake we propose that the section identity (e.g., Section 0101) be displayed as the option rather than "All Sections".

    The request comes after an instructor who has separate Canvas course spaces for each section of a course she teaches made the unfortunately assumption that if she selected "All Sections" some how student membership in all section spaces of the course would have the announcement pushed out to them.
