As a student, the sidebar helps you see what you need to do next, what is coming up, and what feedback you've received across all your courses. However, assignments that are not graded or do not require an online submission only display until the due date.
The To Do section  shows all assignments with a due date in the next seven days, including ungraded quizzes and assignments that do not require a Canvas submission. Each item in the To Do list displays the assignment name, the course name, the number of points, and the due date for the assignment. Once the due date has passed, items remain in this section for four weeks.
The Coming Up section  shows assignments and events coming up in the next seven days. If a graded assignment in the Coming Up list has already been graded, the assignment includes the assignment score. The Coming Up section displays up to 20 items ordered according to date. You can also click the Calendar link for quick access to your calendar.
The Recent Feedback section  shows assignments with feedback from your instructor during the last four weeks.
The View Grades button  links to the Dashboard Grades page and displays grades for all active courses.
Manage Sidebar Items
Each section item displays an icon  to differentiate between assignments and peer review assignments.
If a section contains more items than are listed, a link will appear under the list that you can use to view additional items .
If there are more than 100 items in the To Do section, you must remove items before you can view any new items. To remove a To Do item, click the remove icon .
Note: Assignments submitted through Canvas disappear automatically from the To Do list; no-submission assignments (submitted on paper/in class) can only be removed from the list manually.
