This is a feature for Canvas Admins. For those of us who are admin and over the organization of sub-accounts, it can be extremely time-consuming to reorganize them.
A time when reorganizing occurs:
- A department is merged with a different department. Example: If there are a management and marketing department, and a hospitality management department and the 2 are merged into one.
- A program is moved under a new department.
- How subaccounts were initially created needs to be reordered because of a new internal process.
Any of these situations would call for reordering of subaccounts. However, re-ordering sub-accounts is a completely manual process. To do this, you have to create a new subaccount, where the courses are supposed to be moved, and then go into each course, go to settings, change the sub-account, save, and then do the next course. If there are hundreds of courses, this can and will take several hours.
However, if you can either identify a cluster courses and move them all at once or simply move an entire sub-account at once this would make the admin management of Canvas much easier.
In this image, you can see that the one sub-account could be moved into another.
