I am in college currently and am needing to be as organized as possible, in order to maintain my grades. I have very minimal knowledge of VBA, but I have created some.
I will try my best to explain, if you are able to help that would be awesome!
Task List, with Due Date, assignment, class, time due
VBA already installed into task list worksheet
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Excel.Range)
If Target.Column = 1 Then
Dim lastRow As Long lastRow = Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Row
Range("$B:$D:A" & lastRow).Sort key1:=Range("A2:A" & lastRow), order1:=xlAscending, Header:=xlYes
Calender with Drop Down that updates automatically
What I Need Overall
I hope this made sense, let me know if you can help with that.

The reason I suggested the Power Pivot is because you have to look at a lot of information in a tiny square in the calendar, whereas in the pivot table by clicking on the timeline or a specific day it will list all the classes, the assignments, the time, and you can filter out the done ones from the not done (submitted or not). Its better for your eyes you don't want to have thick glasses by the time you graduate.

@mendthefabric A couple of days ago another student asked a similar question. He/she chose to work with a typical Calendar template found on-line, with a monthly and a weekly view. Though, it only marked days that something was due, but it didn't specify what. I slightly modified that template to achieve just that and could dump your assignments into the modified template. The calendar views were filled instantly. No VBA needed.
Personally, I would never use this kind of template. It's full with "features" that make it difficult to adapt to ones specific needs. So, use it as it is and don't try to tinker with it too much. Take it, or leave it, I would say.
Oh, and since you tag your posting with "Office365", I assume that your Excel version supports the FILTER function. If not, you may disregard the attached workbook.

@mendthefabric Just add it at the bottom of the assignment table. It will expand automatically No need to sort if for the Calendar to work. But if you want to sort the list, just push the little arrow at the top of the DUE DATE column and choose the sort option you want.

@Riny_van_Eekelen Great job, Riny. I knew @mendthefabric would be able to find the help she was looking for by posting this publicly. (She had sent me a private message with the same original question, and I referred her here.)
And I also appreciate your comments vis-a-vis the templates. In general those so often have bells and whistles that get in the way of helping the very people they're intended to help.
