By default, Brightspace Pulse and Brightspace Pulse notifications are enabled for all clients. However, some steps are required to deploy Brightspace Pulse in your organization. The name of your organization is automatically added to the searchable list that helps learners quickly log into Brightspace. The list is also automatically updated if the name of the top-level org unit is changed in the Org Unit Editor in Brightspace. Changes to the top-level org unit are updated in Brightspace Pulse nightly. Changes typically appear within 24-48 hours depending on the time zone of the user making changes. To override the organization name in Brightspace Pulse without changing the top-level org unit in Brightspace, contact D2L Support.
Note: To disable Brightspace Pulse in your organization, see Manage learner access to Brightspace Pulse.
