Full-screen Pop-up Alert Channel
When a Pointer Alert is issued, messages with information about the alert can be sent to the campus community by means of a number of different communication channels, including an Alertus full-screen pop-up.
An Alertus pop-up will fill your entire screen (including text appropriate to the notice), similar to the image at right. Note: If this were an actual emergency, the message would contain important alert information.
Once an alert is launched, the pop-up will not clear the screen unless acknowledged or the message expires.
