Please note that not all replacement strings listed below work in all areas of D2L. Also, replacement strings only work once when used in Content files, so they are best used in other tools. Recommended areas to use replacement strings include homepage widgets, navigation bars, and news posts.
Intelligent Agents use their own set of replacement strings. To learn more about Intelligent Agents, see the Creating an Intelligent Agent tutorial.
