What permission enables the search bar above? I do NOT want the Advanced Search features - I just want users to be able to search for a keyword in their course titles.

Reason: Our courses do not have start/end dates. We want users to be able to access the materials at any time. Eventually users self-enroll in a lot of courses, and it becomes a bit of a pain for them to have to find the specific course they're looking for. (There's a widget on our main course page that they can search on, but clicking the 9 square icon in the top-right of the screen is easier to find.)

    Hey @Maureen.Barrow3520,

    Thanks for reaching out to us here at the Brightspace Community!

    The Search for courses field only appears if you have been enrolled in the number of courses specified in the d2l.Tools.Homepages.MaxCourses ( Org ) configuration variable. The default setting for this configuration variable is 25.

    1. On the Course Updater page, in the Search for courses field, enter a value.
    2. To add parameters to your search, click Show Advanced Filters.
    3. Do any of the following:
      • To search for courses by department, in the Department drop-down list, select a department.
      • To search for courses by semester, in the Semester drop-down list, select a semester.
      • To search for courses by status, in the Active drop-down list, select active or inactive.
      • To search by start date, in the Course Start drop-down list, select an option. In the filter fields, enter dates.
      • To search by end date, in the Course End drop-down list, select an option. In the filter fields, enter dates.
    4. Click the Search icon.
