Internet Explorer is not supported by Design Library

The last version of Internet Explorer, version 11, was released on October 17, 2013. This is a very long time ago when taking into account the rapid development of web technologies. These days it is often difficult and time consuming to get modern technologies to work well in this old browser. More and more frameworks are dropping support, and even Microsoft themselves has announced that they will fully drop support for IE in their own services in 2021.

Consequently, we have decided to not include support for IE in the Design Library website.

Luckily, there are modern options in active development. Please use Firefox, Edge or Chrome instead.

Notifications dropdown

A dropdown displaying the user's most recent notifications.

Notificaions dropdown


Short description

This dropdown displays the most recent notifications to the user. It communicates what they need to do, so that they are kept updated and well-informed. It reduces mistakes and missed deadlines.

When and how to use it

The dropdown is opened by pressing the notifications bell in the top bar. Is only used by the web shells; Nexus, Business Arena and Internetbanken Privat.



In IBP and Business Arena, the notifications are always grouped, with a number to the right showing how many there are of that type, ex “payments to sign (3)”.

In Nexus the notifications are not grouped.

Prioritised notifications

The top part of the dropdown displays prioritised notifications, these are the ones the user can act on. When pressing one of these the user is always directed to a page where they can act on the notification. Only when the user has acted on the notification, it is removed from the dropdown.

Max 20 of these notifications are shown in the dropdown. When there are more than 6, a scroll function is enabled in desktop. In mobile the entire dropdown is scrollable to avoid nested scrolling.

Informative notifications

The lower part displays informative notifications, which we call “send-outs”. These are the ones the user can not act on but only read. When pressing one of these, the user is directed to a place where they can read the entire information. When the user has read the informative notification, it is removed from the dropdown.

Max 3 of these notifications are shown in the dropdown. The user can see how many send-outs they have in the In Nexus those notifications are called “events”.

In the bottom, there is a section which links the user to see more.
