How to Merge Sections (READ Before you try)
NOTE: Consider this scenario for the steps below: you are teaching ENGL-101-01 and ENGL-101-02 and would like to combine the enrollments into one course. You decide that ENGL-101-01 will serve as the primary/main/parent course. Step One: Navigate to the course you wish to cross-list (in our example, ENGL-101-02).
*If you start in the wrong section - all enrollments (participation too) is lost. Perform the sections/merge BEFORE the courses are Published.
