Today, we’re proud to release an update to your Dashboard that allows you to take a smarter look at each of your courses. We’ve redesigned the course filter mode on the Dashboard and revamped it to prominently feature information that you need. The focus is in delivering a better, not just prettier, experience.
The new course view still displays your open and completed assignments just like it did before, but we’ve also added a course overview at the top. The course overview shows you the distribution of assignments in that course, from those very overdue (highlighted in red), those due today, and a two-week look ahead.
We’ve also intelligently grouped them into segments and highlighted the weekdays. Hovering your mouse over a day will give you a preview of assignments due that day.
Opening the new course view is easy: just click on “View by course” on the left. When you’re done and want the bigger picture, just click on the course title again. You can also close the course view by clicking the close icon on the course tabs, but keep in mind if you have a lot of courses that the course tabs may be automatically hidden to save space.
