Is Cross-Listing Courses Best for Conferencing?

Community Member

Canvas admin here trying to figure out the best way for teachers to see all of their students from the same course (multiple sections/canvas courses) in order to do one conference.  If the teacher has three sections, is cross-listing the best way to get all students in the same conference class?  

If there is a better way, please HELP!  Teachers are also worried about needing to DE-cross-list after students return to the building and losing grades.
