A Push Notification is an alert that, if enabled, is sent to your device (PC, phone, etc.) even when you are not online or browsing d2jsp. When you are offline the Push Notifications you are "missing" are stored on a backend server, so they can be pushed out to you, when you open the browser or the phone you enabled it on. Once enabled, refreshing d2jsp is not a requirement to receive the stored Push Notifications.
How to Enable Push Notifications
You can enable this feature from: Settings > Push Notification Settings, by pressing the "Enable Push Notifications" button. When you have pressed the button you will on some browsers/devices be prompted a popup message asking you whether you wish to allow the site access to Push Notifications. Make sure to press "Allow" for the Push Notifications to function properly. If you wish to have Push Notifications enabled in multiple browsers or devices, make sure you enable each separately.
When you have pressed the "Enable Push Notifications" button, you can now select what you want to receive Push Notifications for via the check boxes. When enabling Push Notifications, make sure you allow up to a minute for it to register. Do not leave or refresh the page while it says "Registering...".
