Browser compatibility and notifications


Compatible browsers

Jostle supports the latest two versions of all major browsers, including:

  • Chrome
  • Firefox
  • Safari (Mac)
  • Microsoft Edge
  • Internet Explorer (11)*

Javascript and cookies need to be enabled as well.

NOTE—full support doesn’t extend to these browsers on mobile. If using an iPhone, iPad or Android device to access the Jostle platform, we recommend doing so via our mobile app instead.

*While IE11 is currently supported by Jostle, it is not recommended. As Microsoft 365 will be removing its support for IE11 in August 2021, Jostle will be phasing out their own support of the browser around that same time.


Browser notifications

The first time you access your intranet you will be given the option to choose whether to receive Jostle Notifications on your browser settings. This feature is available on Chrome, Firefox and Safari. Browser notifications appear in the corner of your screen and look as shown below (appearance may vary by browser):




If you later find you want to change your initial setting, here's how:


Google Chrome

  1. In the top-right corner of the browser window, click the Chrome menu.
  2. Then click on Settings.
  3. Scroll down and click on Advanced.
  4. In the "Privacy & Security" section, click Content settings.
  5. Scroll down and click on Notifications.
  6. Locate the “” item and to its right, click on the "More actions" icon and select Remove.
  7. Access Jostle again and select your new preference when the Browser notification dialog appears.

For mute and other settings, go to Chrome support page.



  1. Open your Jostle intranet. 
  2. In the address bar, click the i-icon to bring up the Control Center.
  3. Click the arrow in the prompt.
  4. Click "More information" to bring up the Page Info window.
  5. Click the Permissions tab.

Safari (Mac)

  1. In the Safari app, go to Safari > Preferences.
  2. Then go to Websites > Notifications

  4. Select your option to allow or deny Jostle notifications


Notification sounds

We push Notifications to your browser and to your phone's notification center. The alert is up to the Browser and the Phone you are using. Browsers may require an add-on installation.

    I looked into this as well as we are IE users too.  I found this link so I'm assuming that it won't be any time soon.
