Where Can I Use Replace Strings In D2L?

You can use replace strings (e.g., {firstname} as a replace string for a student’s first name), in D2L Intelligent AgentsNews items, and in the headers and footers of Quizzes. The following replace strings are frequently used:

{firstname} = first name

{lastname} = last name

{orgunitname} = course offering name

Please note that replace strings will not work in emails sent from the D2L Classlist. For a detailed explanation of possible replace strings, please see the “Replace Strings for Intelligent Agents” section of our D2L Intelligent Agents guide.
