Import from Canvas options limited for Instructors

Is there any way to make the selection for the course the instructor would like to import from scroll enabled so the instructor could see back for multiple years if they choose?  We teach some courses only once every 2 years or so and an instructor who teaches many courses can't just click twice and find the course they want to import.  They have to export from all courses then grab it from the download.  Being able to scroll down would be a simple fix.

Hi Sharon,

I'm not sure I understand what you mean about the course selection for import not scrolling.  I may be in a different part of the interface than you are describing but this is what I'm seeing:

Thank you for the reply.  I can see what you are seeing as an administrator. But when I masquerade as the instructor he can only see his previous courses and he can't scroll down.  (?) We are still new to Canvas so........

Oh, that makes sense.  I see what you mean:

To answer your original question I don't think you can currently have the import menu scroll for instructors.  If you would like to submit a feature idea for voting, please click on Ideas in the global nav and then on "Priorities & Ideas."  For more information on why we encourage people to submit and vote on feature ideas please read more here.
