Note: Once submitted and viewed by an ITIL user the Ticket will be triaged to an incident or request
Communicating with the analyst working on your problem or request
- There are several ways to access problems or requests that you already submitted (either view Self-Service or through the Help/Service desk).
- Lists all of your open incidents (problems) and requests display on your homepage. Click on an incident number or request number to view the item.
- Gauges all of your incidents and requests by state display on your homepage. Click on a piece to drill down and get more information.
