Adding Students - Person-Centric Way

At the moment when adding students, I have to find a course then paste their email/ id into the the dialogue box. For 12 or so courses this is very slow.

 

Would this not be better:

 

1) After a SIS import of students on a certain date, go to People. Here there is a new feature - sort by date field - then sort by required date. Click on one student you have added and here there is a new feature - Add courses.

 

2) Add courses new dialogue appears - similar to Courses dialogue but you can filter by clear text for a number of courses - similar to adding email users in Outlook (see below). 

Filter results are shown in a table form which you can just tick to enrol (or unenrol!). When you happy you click one button and enrol the student in all courses simultaneously.

It would be a lot quicker!
