Replacement Strings


What are Replacement or "Replace" Strings?

Replacement strings in D2L Brigthspace are like merge fields for mail-merged form letters.  At Pima, these strings can be used within Announcements, Grades, and various other D2L tools (except email functionality which, instead, runs through Gmail at Pima).
