There should be a method for individuals to manually cross through, check off, or otherwise mark ungraded and/or personally added calendar items "complete."
Hi, Crystal Morris and Welcome to the Canvas Community! While it's not configured in exactly the way you've described, we wonder if you've had a chance to investigate the Student To-Do list functionality that is currently on beta:
Canvas Release: Student Dashboard List View
Add "To Do" List For Students On Calendar
We've placed this idea into Moderating status to give you an opportunity to check out the new features. Thanks!
Did you get a chance to look over the new features?
