Get Ready for New Ticket Emails from IT Services

IT Services has recently converted to a new ticketing system called Service Now, which has changed the way emails about your tickets will look. When you open a new ticket with the Help Desk or an existing ticket is updated, you will receive an email with information about your ticket titled "Incident INC[ticket number]."

Don't mistake this email for spam----it will allow you to access your ticket (click on your ticket number in the email) so that you can:
  • View the status of your ticket
  • See who has been assigned to work on your request
  • View and modify the description of your problem
This will allow you to see updates on your tickets at any time while your request is being completed. If you have a question, you can reply to the email and it will be added to your ticket. You will also be able to view old (closed) tickets and discover how they were resolved.
