The New Gradebook has a wonderful feature where we can choose colors for assignment statuses, e.g. Late, Missing, Resubmitted.
I often scan through my gradebook looking for submissions from students that I need to grade (but that are not late) and I would love to be able to 'highlight' the "Needs Grading" assignments. The icon in the grade cell telling me the student submitted something can be really hard to see when surrounded by other grades and icons - especially when scrolling through a lot of assignments and students.
Having a status of "Needs Grading" that I could change to a garish color would be fabulous!
