    With the new role change feature now available in Canvas, an existing user's role still cannot be changed to that of an "Observer".  Additionally, existing "Observers" cannot have their roles change to any other role type. The only option is to delete from the course and then re-invite, which we are trying to get away from.  Is there a reason the "Observer" role is not an option for a role change in either direction? It makes sense that the Observer role also be available as an option for a role change.
