CoLab also supports desktop notifications that appear on your desktop, similar to an email or calendar notification.
To change your desktop notification preferences, navigate to the ‘Profile Settings’ page by clicking on your profile photo in the bottom left corner of the app, and selecting ‘Profile Settings’. Scroll down to the ‘Desktop Notification Preferences’ section and select the desired setting.
To ensure your browser is allowing desktop notifications for CoLab, click the lock icon in your web browser address bar (to the left or the URL) from the CoLab app. In the Notifications dropdown menu, select ‘Allow’.
Finally, if you are using Windows and desktop notifications are not appearing, ensure you do not have “Focus Assist” enabled on the desktop. This will stop CoLab notifications from appearing in real-time.
