[Modules] Selecting and Moving Multiple Items in Modules

I am working on a new semester in Canvas. I have moved over my old content from Blackboard. I am now trying to organize items a bit better into modules. It would be wonderful if there was a way to select multiple items in the modules sections and move them all at once to a new or different module. Thanks!

Agreed! I should be able to select and reassign multiple items to new locations, modules, or assignment categories.

I'm about to move over 150 items one by one. We need this.

Problem statement:

Please allow us to click on multiple items in a module to move to another module all at one time, when we click on the three dots to move items.

Proposed solution:

It is extremely time consuming to choose 1 item at a time when several items needs to be shifted to another module. Why is this not a thing yet? Please!

Problem statement:

I would like to suggest that within the Canvas modules you either create a "global edit" Tab at the top of the module that when selected will create select/tick boxes on the left side of each item in the modules which would allow us to select multiple items to copy, move, delete, indent, undo, etc. OR, you could just place the boxes permanently next to all items in the modules to accomplish the same.

Proposed solution:

It is very time-consuming to edit, remove, or copy items one by one when it could be done simply by selecting/ ticking the appropriate box (es) and executing one edit. This could also be very useful when copying items from one course module to a different course module. Thanks!
