Use the Sort by ... Deadline dropdown menu to rearrange the order of Tasks visible on the Tasks Overview page. You can sort by ascending or descending due dates or upcoming due dates first.
Grades & comments entered via the Tasks tab are automatically visible to the students and parents on their accounts, unless the teacher has manually hidden the Assessment results for a Task via the Gradebook > Tasks page.

Teachers cannot Send grades notifications for tasks with hidden results. Click Show Task Results republish Task Results. All Tasks are set to show results by default.

By enabling any of the available buttons, teachers can get a quick overview of which areas of the Task grades may need further review or completion. In the above case, the student name is not included in the comment and the Names field checker function indicates that in orange.
