I want to first thank you for your participation in this community space. @peytoncraighill and I talk daily about how much we appreciate the feedback that we are getting from all of you as we work through the development of these new features. And, because that feedback is so valuable, we want to hear your thoughts about important dates as we prepare for development of this feature.
As you've heard, teachers will be able to designate calendar events as important dates so that they will show up for students in the right-hand column of their dashboard. Here's where we want your thoughts - is there a specific timeframe that you'd expect to see these dates filtered to? Some examples could be a month at a time, rolling for the upcoming two weeks, or a scrollable list for the year, but don't let this limit your thinking! Let us know in a comment below what you think would work best and be most meaningful for your students and parents.
