We automatically apply student enrolments to Canvas from our SIS. We do not want to allow teachers to enrol students, however we do want to allow them to add/move existing students to other sections within their course.
For example we have semester based sections within one course which could be taught multiple times over the year. So if an individual student needs to have access extended beyond their semester of study, then they should be added to a second section, which provides access for the whole academic year.
Before Christmas 2021 instructors were able to add existing students to additional sections, but attempting this now generates an unhelpful 'Ajax' error. It seems that we were taking advantage of a loophole which Canvas has now tightened up (although it is not clear why this action generates an Ajax error, rather than the menu option itself being hidden).
Please improve granularity to allow instructors to manage the sections of existing students without having the ability to add new students to a course.
