    When a student has no upcoming due dates, the list view of their dashboard shows celebratory balloons and says "nothing more to do." Some of our students have complained that this message is misleading. We offer many self-paced courses with no due dates. Students may have many things to do to complete these courses, but because there are no due dates, their dashboard falsely celebrates their status. Similarly, some of our courses include proctored final exams that reside outside Canvas. We've had students complain that after completing all of their Canvas assignments, their dashboard celebrates their completion when in reality they still have a final exam to take.


    Would it be possible to remove the balloons and put a more objective message like "No future due dates" or "No future events in Canvas"? "Nothing more to do" just isn't accurate for many of our students.
