Description: The Alertus Desktop Client software provides VCU computers with the ability to display alert messages from the VCU Alerts webpage: https://alert.vcu.edu/. These alert messages are similar to the text messages that VCU Alerts subscribers receive on their mobile phones. Only critical alert messages regarding campus safety will be transmitted to a computer which has Alertus Desktop installed. When the Alertus software receives an alert message it will display it full screen on the computer monitor. Currently, the software only receives alert messages when connected to an on-campus network, or via Rams VPN.
