      Description

      I just spent over two hours adding children to metacourse because 1) it has to be done individually by searching the pulldown menu for the relevant course, 2) only one can be selected at a time and 3) the pulldown menu has several hundred items!!

      For schools that have 10s or 100s of sections that need to refer to the same parent course, the current system is a nightmare.

      1) There should be a search window so that courses can be found by name
      2) The window should allow multiple selection
      3) There should be a batch load function as there is for student registrations.

      See the attachment for a view of my problem. The screen shows most of the Monday classes, but there is an equal amount for other days of the week that is out of view.
