Canvas To Do lists contains a To Do list and other sections that help you know what assignments and events are coming up in all of your courses. The sidebar includes specific items for instructor and student roles. If you are enrolled in Canvas courses with more than one user role, your sidebar may show items for both roles. You may view this either in Card or List views in the Dashboard.
The sidebar is similar to the sidebar displayed in your Course Home Page, but the course sidebar only includes items for the specific course. Depending on the setup of your Course Home Page, the sidebar in a course may contain additional sections than shown in the sidebar.

Once the due date has passed, items remain in this section for four weeks.
