Web Help Desk – Creating Tickets
Web Help Desk is Glenbard’s Ticketing system. Web Help Desk will help the right people get the right tickets and expedite get a solution.
A few things to remember when creating a Ticket.
- Always create your own tickets, unless you are unable to log in
- If you cannot log in, please have your DC put in a ticket to get your login corrected. Do not have your DC put in a ticket about the original issue.
- Having any sort of “middle man” will delay any solution
- AWAYS read the instructions when Creating a ticket
First, click the Request button in the Web Help Desk toolbar.
You will be brought to a blank ticket. The different parts of the form are numbered and explained below.
1. Request Type
Choose the correct Request Type according to the issue at hand. (All Request Types have detailed descriptions for when to use them.) Some Request Types will create a second or third drop-down box with additional options.
Note: You must select an option from all drop-down boxes in order to submit the ticket.
Enter a descriptive “title” for the issue.
3. Please Read!
This green box displays details on when it is best to use the Request Type that you have chosen. (Please read the descriptions if you are not already familiar with them. There will be a delay if your ticket is routed incorrectly.)
4. Request Detail
Include detailed information about the issue. (Please be as descriptive as possible.)
Click the Add File button to add an attachment to the ticket. (This is useful for adding screenshots of error messages or other information that can be helpful for a Technician to assist with a help request.)
