      Description

      It would be great if the Upload Courses function (https://docs.moodle.org/31/en/Upload_courses) could be extended, so the number of sections can be provided in the .csv file.
      We could use this, as we're uploading (copying) different courses at the same time with a different number of sections. By default the settings from the Course default settings > numsections is taken.

      This improvement could be easily done by adding the numsection variable in the validfields in admin/tool/uploadcourse/classes/course.php. However, as I'm not a developer and as I don't know how to handle the validation, testing and documenting, it would be great if someone could implement this?

      Following forked repo contains the necessary changes: https://git.ffhs.ch/joel.schmid/moodle (Commit: a6486f14279)
