I have a question regarding managing Cohorts in 2.4.My site is set up like a University, with several Sub-Categories (schools), each with their own groups of category cohorts.The school admins manage their respective cohorts.Each course that the school creates can Cohort Sync from the list of that school's cohorts.That has all been running fine. (Restricting access to only cohorts within their school.)
Now the snag.The university wants to create some site-wide courses that can be accessed by individuals from any school.For example, a course called New Orientation, that will be available to anyone in the Math101 cohort (in School 1 Category), Psych101 cohort (in School 2 Category), etc.
I tried creating the course on the University level, but it cannot see any cohorts listed on sub-category (school) levels.
University Category (Only a few system level cohorts, hidden from view of the school admins)
New Orientation Course
-----School 1 SubCategory(Contains Cohorts for the school of Math)
Math 101 course
-----School 2 SubCategory (Contains Cohorts for the school of Psych)
Psych 101 course
It seems that a course can only look up the tree of categories to use Cohorts, in this case only University level cohorts.It cannot see any cohorts listed in sub-categories.(Maybe this is a setting somewhere that I have not yet found.If so, please direct me to where it is.)
Since the students are all enrolled into their category cohorts by the school admins, I would prefer to not have to create distinct cohorts for these general courses.Is there any way to reference a cohort that is listed in a sub-category?
