Using Replacement Strings in Canvas

Jump to solution

We currently use replacement strings to personalize email, announcements, news, even quizzes for students. These strings (i.e., {FirstName} ) will pull in the student's first name to show it in the welcome announcement, news, emails, even at the start of a quiz. This is a great tool and I am wonder how to do this in Canvas. This code doesn't appear to work as the code itself showed up in the announcements.

Thanks

Karen

Where did this feature idea go? Very useful and something which should really be there. I cant find it anywhere now. Was it removed moving to the new server? Maybe time to resurrect it then?
