    Please change each the "Manage (create / edit / delete) course sections" from a single setting to three separate settings.



    Manage (create / edit / delete) course sections



    Should become:

    • Create course sections
    • Edit course sections
    • Delete course sections


    One reason for this request:

    This would allow you to set a Sub-Account Manager or Course Designer (or other roles) to having only the permissions needed for that role instead of none of them or all of them. For example, the ability to create course sections but not to edit or delete them.


    Note: There is this one as well, In Permissions, Separate Manage (add/edit/delete) courses into 3 permissions  (this is for the same thing but with courses and not sections)
