New and Improved Calendar Icons!

Have a lot of items on your eBackpack calendar and can’t distinguish which is a reminder and which is an assignment? Now there is an easier way to see the difference between which items are class vs personal reminders, items that allow turn in and those that do not!

Reminders are represented by a calendar/pencil icon overlay. You will still be able to see the class icon that the reminder is associated with and/or the icon that represents a personal reminder.

Assignments and quizzes that do not allow turn in will be represented by the “no” icon overlay, which is a circle with a diagonal slash.

Assignments and quizzes that do accept turn in are represented with no additional icon overlay.

Now you can be more organized with a quick glance at your calendar in eBackpack!
