Replacement strings allow you to personalise messages by providing the code to replace information that is specific to a student such as their first and last names. This allows you to send personalised messages to each student in your site without having to enter their personal details numerous times.
Replacement strings can be used in:
- where ever there is a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get). Examples: HTML pages, Assignment folder descriptions, News items, widgets, discussion posts, etc
- emails sent by Intelligent Agents (within the body and/or the address field)
Note: Replacement strings cannot be used in emails sent via the Classlist.
