Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) 8 does not fully support some important HTML and CSS standard features. Therefore, if WFM Web 8.1.2 is running in IE 8, some UI functionality might display behavior that is different from later IE versions. If the issue you are experiencing does not affect WFM functionality significantly and occurs only when you are using IE 8, Genesys recommends using IE 9 or another supported browser to resolve it. IE 9 and later versions provide better support for HTML and CSS standards.
