that as a CMS Admin I can delete the automatically created ones when necessary
that I can re-combine existing cross-lists and other sections as suits the Instructor’s section management style
that the decisions made between a Department and the Registrar are transparent to the Instructor such that s/he knows that they are teaching a class that can be registered for under, oh say, Computer Applications, or Values in Technology, or whatever the next Program can utilize from existing offerings.
that deleted crosslists stay deleted
that re-assigning content (copy section content) from one xlist to another one succeeds 100% of the time, not the reverse.
that child sections have traceability for Administrators through the GUI to their parent section. Currently it takes gymnastics and multiple interfaces to find the parent of a given child section. Formerly I would enroll myself in one of the child sections, enter the section itself, and read the upper right hand corner of the section banner. Not now, the Cross-List Group does not appear there if you’ve chosen the setting to remove the redundant Course-Section title from the My Courses homepage display(!).
that a primary or original course home is defined for a cross-list perhaps by the Registrar, so that statistics and reporting for particular courses can include those courses which are cross-listed. Reporting on Crosslists as though it were its own College is not particularily helpful.
that parent sections could inherit the category (department) of that primary child to further enhance reporting and locating them.
