I try to enable push notifications but I receive the message, "Notifications denied by browser settings." How come?

Push notifications sent through the site must also be allowed by your browser. If your browser is blocking notifications then you won't be able to receive the push notifications.


If you would like to enable push notifications in Chrome and Firefox, go to the lock icon in your browser's address bar and under Permissions change the Notifications permission to Allow. 

In Safari you can enable desktop notifications by selecting "Safari" from the browser's header, then "Preferences," then "Notifications." In the notifications tab you will want to find collabornation.net in the list of websites and select "Allow."


You may also receive this message if you browser is in private browsing, such as incognito mode on Chrome. Browsers do not allow push notifications when in private browsing. Please exit the private browsing and visit the site in a regular window to receive push notifications.
