Tribal Habits is a browser-based application and requires a constant internet connection. It is a lightweight platform with minimal IT requirements.
First, we support all modern desktop and mobile web browsers.
We make every effort to test and support the most recent versions of all modern browsers but we cannot guarantee support for every version of every browser on every device!
We recommend using the latest stable versions of these browsers (and we typically support the last three versions of each browser):
iOS (Apple Safari)
Android (Google Chrome)
Please note that our support for Internet Explorer 11 ended on 1st November 2021. We no longer address bug or support issues related to that browser, nor can we guarantee all features will work with that browser.
Second, there are no downloads required (we do not utilise Adobe Flash or require any plug-ins or downloads). You just need your browser. This means that Tribal Habits should also function with 'thin-client' or remote desktops. There are no downloads or installations which require approval from your IT department.
Tribal Habits does require users to accept session cookies in their browsers as part of our security management and user authentication process (this is typical of any online portal requiring a login).
We support all desktop devices which can run any of the above browsers running on the current or most recent previous versions of Windows or MacOS. The platform should also function on LinuxOS but we do not specifically test for this or guarantee compatibility.
We also support modern tablet devices (e.g. iPads) for all aspects of the platform running on the current or most recent previous versions of Windows, iOS or Andriod. The platform may function on other tablet devices but we do not specifically test for this or guarantee compatibility with every tablet device.
We also support mobile devices for learning purposes and are fully responsive to small screen sizes. We recommend using your mobile in landscape view.
While you can access content creation and platform administration functions from your mobile, the experience is not optimised for those complex functions.
Tribal Habits sends a variety of email notifications to your users. You can learn more about this process, the settings for the email 'From' user (Primary Admin) and how to manage any internal email filters at your organisation at this article.
Tribal Habits can support up to Level AA requirements under Web Accessibility Content Guidelines 2.1. Learn more about our approach and support for accessible users at this article.
For single-sign-on environments, we support the SAML 2.0 standard. You can learn more about our SSO set-up here. This includes support for popular SSO platforms including Microsoft Azure AD and ADFS, Okta, OneLogin, Salesforce and more.
For most organisations, no safe listing (whitelisting) is required. However, we recommend safe-listing the following emails and domains in your corporate firewalls to ensure maximum compatibility (particularly if you have a vigorous IT security process!).
*.wistia.com, fast.wistia.net and embedwistia-a.akamaihd.net (for videos hosted in our system)
*@tribalhabits.com (for any system or support emails)
cloud.scorm.com (only needed if SCORM Upload is enabled)
In addition, if you decide to embed content from third-party websites in any of your created training in Tribal Habits, your organisation will need to permit those websites. A typical example is YouTube. If your organisation blocks YouTube, it is likely to be blocked when viewed within Tribal Habits as well.
LMS SCORM Links
Our SCORM links meet SCORM 1.2 standards and will be compatible with any learning management system (LMS) which correctly interprets SCORM 1.2.
For users accessing a Tribal Habits module via their LMS and our SCORM links, the user's browser must accept third-party cookies. Instructions to manage third-party cookies for various browsers can be found below.
If required, you can specify the Tribal Habits domain as an exception to blocked third-party cookies (e.g. Allow third-party cookies from organisation.tribalhabits.com).
