Discontinued support for Internet Explorer 11 Browser

HandsOn Connect (HOC) will discontinue support for Internet Explorer 11, effective on March 31, 2019.  This does not mean that you can no longer use IE 11 with HOC, but it does mean that we will no longer test our web apps (e.g., HOC Volunteer, HOC Forms, HOC Portal, HOC CMS) for compatibility with IE 11.  

We will also stop fixing items that don't work with IE 11 unless they are absolutely mission-critical and a fix is possible.  Some features will simply not work in IE11.

In 2015, Microsoft released the Edge browser as a replacement for Internet Explorer. Hence, Internet Explorer no longer receives significant updates including the latest security improvements and features needed to support rich applications such as HandsOn Connect and Salesforce.  

As of October 2018, less than 3% of all browser usage was on IE 11.  If you are one of the last diehards, we strongly recommend that you stop using IE 11.  It does not support security standards that are built into modern browsers and user experience improvements that newer browsers offer.

Note that Salesforce Lightning Experience does not support IE 11 as of December 16, 2017.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
