How does my LMS appear in the Pulse App? How do learners find us?
Pulse features a workflow called Discovery for new users to find the URL to connect to their Brightspace environment by using their geo-location. Otherwise, the user can type the name of their school, district, employer, or institution and search for it.
There is also a simple search functionality. For example, if your institution is called "University of Wakanda", then it will show for various terms including "Wakanda", "U of W", or "UW".
Figure: Use Brightspace Pulse's Discovery workflow to find Brightspace environments based on your geo-location.
What name appears in the listing?
The organization name that appears in the Pulse search is driven by the top-level org name in Brightspace.
This name is set and can be changed by navigating to Admin Tools > Org Unit Editor. Then, with the top-level organization selected (Default), select Edit Properties. The field labeled Name determines the name that appears in Pulse. For more information, refer to About Org Unit Editor.
How do I change the URL that shows up in the listing?
The URL that displays below the name in Pulse is driven by the d2l.Settings.WebServerName config in the config variable browser.
Figure: Search for your Brightspace environment in Pulse by manually entering your institution's name.
How long will it take for changes to appear in Pulse?
Both the name and URL are updated daily. There can be a delay of up to 48 hours after a name change.
How do I manually enter my institution's URL?
If you want to manually enter your institutions URL, type “zzz” into the search bar. No results will show up and you will be prompted to manually enter your URL.
