    Please change, nn Account Roles the  "Manage (add/edit/delete) courses" from a single setting to three separate settings.

     

    Current:

    Manage (add / edit / delete) courses

     

    Should become:

    • User can Add courses
    • User can Edit courses
    • User can Delete courses

     

    One reason for this request:

    This would allow you to set Sub-Account Managers (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 add a course but not to edit or delete a course.

     

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