You can create To Do items that display in the Dashboard List View agenda. When you create a to-do, the new item displays your profile picture to differentiate it from other To Do list items. Any To-Do item you create also displays in the Course Card Dashboard View sidebar and Global Activity Stream Dashboard sidebar.
