Running on your Mac or Windows computer, Alertus Desktop can display a TuftsAlert message on your computer screen and may be faster than text messaging, email, or telephone.

  • Alerts for any campus will be sent to desktop alerting software on all campuses.
  • Desktop alerting is one in an array of methods to spread critical information, and it remains important to keep your contact info up to date in TuftsAlert.
