Alertus Desktop Alert
Posted by Aaron Klein on 07 November 2011 09:36 AM

In conjunction with the department of Campus Police and Saftey the IT center has installed on all college managed computers a desktop alert tool that in the event of an emergency will display at full screen resolution an alert.  This alert can be used in conjunction with our cell phone text alerting service to distribute information out to the campus in the event of a campus wide emergency.  The following screenshot is an example of what the alert will look like on the screen.   In addition what the image below does not show is that in the middle of the screen will be in red text ALERT and it will be blinking.  Once you have read the contents of the alert message click the acknowlege button to clear the alert. 

If you do not click on the acknowlege button the alert will expire after a set amount of time.
