Upon completing your first comparison with Gearset you'll be asked for permission to show notifications. If permission is granted, Gearset will notify you when a comparison or validation has finished when the browser is minimised or a different tab is currently selected.

What if I change my mind?

If you initially choose to deny notification permission but later decide that you want the feature enabled (or vice versa), you will need to edit the permission settings in your browser.
