Suggestion: Non-Quest Task

I don't know if this has been brought up before, but I'd love to be able to assign some non-quest tasks. I do a lot of "side quests" in my classes where students can periodically check in and submit extra work, but they don't always correlate with a larger unit that I'm teaching.

I don't know how you'd offer it on the large quest map, but if there was a way to just assign one or two tasks (almost like putting up a post in Google Classroom) it would make my side quests work much better.
