Since you can color code your classes within canvas, there should be an option to have assignments be color coded relative to the class to which it was assigned.
Hi Zakk , and Welcome to the Canvas Community!
I am guessing that you are referring to the To-Do list found on the Canvas Dashboard. This functionality is already available in the Canvas Calendar where you can select which courses display in the Calendar, and each course will be assigned a different color corresponding to the colors used when you star favorites in your Courses list.

If this meets your needs, please let us know and we will archive your idea.
