I would like an option to pin any task to the dashboard, so that long-term tasks can be easily seen ahead of time if a user deems them important. I think this would really help others in addition to myself keep on top of big tasks

I think this would be excellent if you integrate it into a project planning type feature. I've had many classes, where we are assigned a project weeks or months in advance and not being able to use backward planning time-tables into my calendar have left me scrambling to get it done at the last minute.
If a paper is assigned a few weeks out it would still show up in the tasks list before the week it's due.
