Adding user's name to content items

Question asked by Justin Kornheisl on Sep 5, 2019

Is there a way to dynamically add a user's name to a content item? Once upon a time, I had worked in a now-defunct LMS and you were able to add variables to things like content item titles. For example, you'd have something like "Welcome to the course, $user_firstname!" or something to that effect, and it would pull the user's first name (or other information, depending on the variable used). Is this possible in Canvas?

 

New admin here, so my apologies if this has been asked somewhere and I've missed it!
