Dashboard Quick Feature Symbols

I called canvas to ask if there was a way to customize what symbols/categories that you want at the bottom of your dashboard card for 1 click easy access.  They said "no".  That would be so much better if I could customize what I want at the bottom of each card, instead of it having just the "announcements, assignments, discussions and files".  I never need to access "files" quickly.  I do however need to access people daily and quickly but there is no option for this.  I have to click 2-3 times before I get to activity for a student.  That's ridiculous when you have to take attendance DAILY and for multiple students and multiple classes.  It's too time consuming.

I use clickable links in an excel spreadsheet to hyperlink to the pages I need most like a students grade card, Student Interactions Report to email a student easier, grade history, gradebook, and discussions.

I've never used their links.
