Intelligent Agents are scripts or criteria that can be triggered by certain events within the course and will send an email to a specified user or users based on that trigger action. Visit the DePaul Teaching Commons for more information on using Intelligent Agents.
Intelligent Agents enhancements include the ability to conduct a “practice run” that will display the results of what the report would have generated if it was run at that time; no email is sent to the students at that time. The list indicates which users would have been contacted with the given parameters of that agent, allowing instructors to test how a particular Intelligent Agent’s settings would impact students.
Custom Reply To Address
Previously, the Intelligent Agents email that is sent out would use a default system address. With the updated version, instructors can customize the name that will appear in the From field when a student receives the email, or customize the Reply To address a student sees when he or she hits “Reply” to the email that is generated.
