List of Edulink One Variables

The following is a list of variables you can use for the different communication functions of Edulink One.

Variables for New Message in Communicator

To parent:

{{recipient.first_initial}}

{{recipient.forename}}

{{recipient.fullname}}

{{recipient.surname}}

{{recipient.title}}

{{learner.forename}}

{{learner.form_group.employee.forename}} Form teacher forename

{{learner.form_group.employee.surname}} Form teacher surname

{{learner.form_group.employee.title}} Form teacher title

{{learner.form_group.name}}

{{learner.form_group.room.code}}

{{learner.form_group.room.name}}

{{learner.form_group.teacher}} Form teacher full name

{{learner.fullname}}

{{learner.he_she_upper}}

{{learner.he_she}}

{{learner.him_her}}

{{learner.himself_herself}}

{{learner.his_her_upper}}

{{learner.his_her}}

{{learner.his_hers}}

{{learner.son_daughter}}

{{learner.house_group.name}}

{{learner.surname}}

{{learner.year_group.name}}

Please note:

If a learner has pronouns set in your MIS the pronouns will be used automatically in place of gendered pronouns (he, she) in the variable. Staff do not need to change the variables; Edulink One will pull the correct pronouns from the MIS.

E.g.
Inputting {{learner.his_her}} in a message will automatically change to their/ zir/ hirs/ eir/ vis/ tem etc., depending on what the learner’s pronouns are set as.

Otherwise, if no pronoun is set in the learner’s MIS profile, Edulink One will base pronouns on gender.

To learner/staff or any combination where it’s not just one type of recipient:

{{recipient.title}}

{{recipient.forename}}

{{recipient.first_initial}}

{{recipient.surname}}

{{recipient.fullname}}
