The calendar view is so useful but it would be great if the assignments crossed off student view as they were submitted. Canvas does this and it's such a great visual. I know there are other ways but some of my kids say they can't see the "overdue" assignment feature, so that's not always reliable. I have them using the gradebook but if you use more than 1 course, it's quite tedious for elementary.
The calendar view in Canvas is superior and so easy for the kids to read. It's also so convenient for parents to quickly monitor. Upgrade Schoology calendar!
