Requests -- Plan Ahead!
(From Susan Bowen, IT Services)
The Information Technology Services Help Desk, located in AD 208,
is responsible for receiving all questions or requests for information
technology services for faculty and staff. This includes computer hardware
and software, email, computer classroom labs, administrative systems,
telephones and voice mail system. To assist ITS in our planning efforts,
the following timeframes are suggested for requests:
for network/email, telephone, and Integrow accounts for new employees
should be received two weeks prior to the new staff person's start date.
for a move or change to existing equipment (computer, printer and telephone)
should be received two weeks prior to the date needed.
for network access (jack activation) should be received one week prior
to the date the connectivity is required.
for the installation of new equipment (computer, printer and telephone,
voice/data jack, or software should be received one month prior to the
date the technology is needed.
for the installation or modification of a curricular software program,
used in a computer classroom lab or open access lab, should be received
from the department chair or program coordinator two months prior to
the start of the semester it is needed.
It is most
helpful to us that these requests go directly to the ITS Help Desk, ext.
4357, or firstname.lastname@example.org, rather
than to an individual ITS staff member. When a request is made, a Help
Desk ticket will be created and an email sent confirming the request.
Request for media services should be received at least two business days
in advance. To request the use of equipment or services, the online Request
for Facilities form can be found on MLink at http://mlink.mccc.com/tech_serv_request.shtml.
