Hello, our staff are trying to link a parent email to a student profile to that we can email a parent and student at the same time within D2L. Is this possible?

    Hi Karen,

    Yes, the functionality you have described is supported if you are using Brightspace for Parents & Guardians. See

    In short, after enabling the tool, you need to create a relationship between the Parent/Guardian and the Learner. In doing this, from a course offering, Teachers via the Classlist can email the Learners parent/guardian and add the learner to the email recipient list.

    Please reach out to the D2L Support team or Customer Success Manager who can assist in getting the tools enabled/configured in your Brightspace environment.

    Hope that helps!
