This is an overview of browser and desktop notifications in Nimble.

How do notifications in Nimble work? 

Nimble allows you to receive notifications for Group Message Opens and Clicks; Task Completion, and Comments from within the application or on your desktop (Chrome and Safari users only). 

What are the benefits of enabling notifications?

By enabling notifications for task completions and Group Messages, you'll be informed right away and empowered to take the critical actions you need during your day.

How do I enable notifications? 

Go to Settings >> Notifications in your account and select the options to enable in-app or desktop notifications.
Please note: Desktop notifications are only available for Chrome and Safari (OSX)


When do I receive Notifications?

You'll receive In-App Notifications when:

Someone Opens a Group Message
Someone Completes a Task
Someone has assigned you a task
Someone Comments on a Task

You'll receive Desktop Notifications When:

Someone Comments on a Task.

In-App Notification Stream

Sometimes, you may not have time to react to all notifications at once. Visit the Bell from any tab within the Nimble Web App to see a stream of all your most recent notifications.


How to Ensure Notifications are Properly Set in Chrome

You will need to double-check in your Google Chrome settings to make sure you will be able to allow desktop notifications.
Go to chrome://settings/content and under "Notifications" make sure that the option for "Ask when a site wants to allow notifications" is enabled.


Can I mute notifications? 

Yes, you may certainly mute notifications. Notifications can be muted for 24 hours, 48 hours, or permanently. 

The "Mute" option will appear for in-app notifications as well as Gmail and desktop notifications.

If you have any questions, please write us at, initiate a chat from this FAQ, or join one of our Nimble Onboarding and Best Practices sessions, held every weekday at 9 AM PT.
