Cross-listing Canvas Courses

We are getting ready to move from Blackboard to Canvas, hopefully starting within the next six weeks. What Canvas calls "cross-listing," we call "course merges." We have never used Blackboard's cross-listing tool. Before they even had a tool, one of our admins created a tool that merged course sections. The faculty member had to request that sections be merged because it was all done behind the scenes.


I don't think that we will be creating any custom tools for Canvas, so I wanted to know some of your experiences with cross-listing courses. Can only admins cross-list courses, or do you allow faculty to do their own cross-listing?
