Important Message from Tech Support
WHO - All campuses / facilities
WHAT - How to report a technical problem using our new trouble tracking system called Grouplink eHelpdesk.
WHEN - Friday July10, 2009
       ACTION -   
  • Our previous trouble reporting system called HEAT has now been replaced by Grouplink. 
  • Outstanding issues in the HEAT system have been moved to the new system if they could be worked over the summer.
  • The system is available by using a web browser such as Internet Explorer or Firefox and accessible from anywhere 24/7.
  • We used to call reported incidents HEAT tickets, now we call them "trouble tickets".
  • When you report a problem, you get instant e-mail notification from the system that your problem has been received, when the status changes, or when the ticket is closed.
  •  All notifications from the system include a quick link to the trouble ticket inside the email for easy access.
  • While your problem is being worked on, you can check on the status of your ticket, make modifications, and add notes/comments.
  • Grouplink also includes a knowledgebase, which is basically a library of resolutions to commonly reported problems.
  • You login to the Grouplink system using the same login and password as you use to get onto your work PC.
